I guess this is what GM is banking on for it's future.
DETROIT — A group of institutional investors is sinking $1.15 billion into GM Cruise LLC, the autonomous vehicle unit of General Motors.
GM announced the investment from a group led by T. Rowe Price on Tuesday morning. Cruise CEO Dan Ammann said in a statement the investment gives Cruise deep resources to draw on as it develops and deploys self-driving vehicles. GM says the investment brings Cruise’s valuation to $19 billion. It comes in addition to $2.75 billion from Honda Motor Co. last October and $2.25 billion last May from Japanese tech firm investment firm SoftBank.
