Those who take the buyout have until the end of the year to continue with GM, with severance effective January 1. The figure represents around 36 percent of GM's salaried workforce.
The largest American automaker announced a voluntary job reduction program to staff after reporting strong earnings for the just completed quarter.
GM reported third-quarter net income of $2.53 billion, or $1.75 a share, compared with a loss past year of $2.98 billion, or $2.03 a share.
About 18,000 of the company's 50,000 salaried employees in North America are eligible for the buyouts, the company spokesman said.
Employees who are eligible for the buyout have until November 19 to decide. The company expects to spend $1 billion on Cruise this year. The buyouts do not affect hourly workers at GM's assembly plants.
Morrissey wouldn't say if GM will begin to lay employees off if too few workers take voluntary buyouts.
Depending on how many workers take the offer and other cost-cutting efforts, Morrissey said, "we'll re-evaluate doing an involuntary program after the first of the year".
Until now, GM had spared its home base from overhead cuts while tearing apart the company overseas during the past five years. GM has said it is aiming to save $6.5 billion in "cost efficiencies" through 2018.
