General Motors Co's self-driving unit, Cruise, said on July 24 it was delaying the commercial deployment of cars past its target of 2019 as more testing of the vehicles was required.

Cruise chief executive officer Dan Ammann said the company would expand testing in San Francisco, and added in a blog post that Cruise was working with Honda Motor Co and General Motors Co to develop purpose-built autonomous vehicles.
