Here’s a bit of good news for GM fans living in the UK. General Motors has vowed to offer a full model lineup of Cadillac vehicles in Europe, including diesel and right-hand drive models, according to Autocar.
This isn’t just some half-cooked rumor, either; it’s straight from the mouth of GM President Dan Ammann.
According to the exec, the brand is contemplating a new approach in Europe, one that would see Cadillac take advantage of its niche status by employing “exceptional service.”
He also confirmed our long-held assertion that Cadillac will add a new flagship model slotted above the incoming 2016 CT6 to take on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-class, as well as the long-wheelbase Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series models. Consequently, it’s expected to be larger and even more lavish than the CT6.
The brand currently has just one single outlet in the UK (located in Surrey), and it sells the ATS, CTS, SRX, and Escalade, according to the British magazine.
As mentioned before, don’t expect Cadillac to storm the UK overnight. The brand will first build momentum here at home and firmly establish its new identity as a new business unit (mostly) separate from GM before it makes a deeper mark in the UK.
All of that said, we hope to see more right-hand-drive models from General Motors. Especially Chevrolet models.
