According to the report, the layoffs involved 900 employees, mainly from business operations and related corporate functions. At the same time, Cruise said it ended some of its work as "temporary workers who support our self-driving business".

By contrast, before the layoffs were announced, Cruise had 3800 employees. "this reflects our new future and a more cautious marketization path, which means that we have reduced the immediate demand for on-site, business operations and corporate personnel," Cruise said.

A spokesman for ▲ Touyuan Cruise said: "GM will support the difficult decisions made by Cruise, which reflects their more thoughtful way forward with safety as the Big Dipper. We have full confidence in this team, which focuses on trust, accountability and transparency, laying the foundation for the company's long-term success. We are committed to supporting Cruise."
