2013 Cadillac XTS Luxury Sedan To Be Built In China

The all-new Cadillac XTS luxury sedan will be built in China in conjunction with joint venture partner Shanghai General Motors beginning this Fall. The new 2013 Cadillac XTS launches in North America later this spring with production beginning in the coming weeks at the Oshawa, Ontario Assembly Plant. China is the second-largest market for Cadillac with record sales of 30,000 vehicles  in 2011, compared with 17,000 in 2010. The SLS Executive Sedan, an extended-length luxury car exclusive to China has been built in China since 2006. All of Cadillac’s core product lines are sold in China, with the CTS Sedan and Coupe, SRX crossover and Escalade imported from North America.  The SRX is Cadillac’s top seller in China with the average age of a Cadillac buyer in China at 35 years old.  In March Cadillac sales set a monthly record of 2,745, an increase of 35.2% over the same period in 2011.
