In an effort to both boost Cadillac sales across the world and production output, General Motors CEO Dan Akerson has stated that that his company plans to expand Cadillac production outside of North America by the end of 2012, though he did not announce possible locations or models that will leave the region of North America.
Currently, the only Cadillac model manufactured outside of the United States that is sold with its borders is the Cadillac SRX, which is built in Ramos Azripe, Mexico. The Cadillac XTS will be built in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada starting early next year and will be available in the ‘States shortly after. The full-sized Cadillac SLS is built and sold in China only.
It’s not yet clear if models destined for the North American market would be imported from elsewhere, of if models built in other parts of the world will be sold in their respective regions only.
