General Motors will have a busy 2018 in China. The automaker announced on Tuesday that it will launch 15 new or refreshed vehicles in the market this year, and the new products will span multiple brands.
GM called out China’s booming auto market, which has been the automaker’s largest retail market for six years. About half of the new vehicles will be crossover SUVs and MPVs, but the automaker also mentioned Cadillac specifically with a desire to “continue its strong momentum in China.” We’ll likely see the 2019 Cadillac XT4 debut in the country following its reveal in New York later this year.
China will also receive many of the 20 new electric cars slated for production by 2023, and GM envisions China as a main factor in the move to zero-emission vehicles and more efficient powertrains. The automaker will also bring Super Cruise to the country in the near future.
Back in North America, GM should be equally as busy. A handful of cars and trucks are likely in for refreshes this year including the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu, 2019 Camaro, 2019 Cruze and perhaps the 2019 Colorado and GMC Canyon.
