"The last 10 years have been amazing, and I'm grateful to everyone who helped Cruise along the way," he wrote in the email.
Cruise in recent months had touted ambitious plans to expand to additional cities offering fully autonomous taxi rides.
Cruise competes with Alphabet’s (GOOGL.O) Waymo in deploying autonomous vehicles and had been testing hundreds in several cities across the U.S., notably its home of San Francisco.
