GM to build 2013 Cadillac XTS in China this year

Detroit News on April 23, 2012 By Melissa Burden

<Excerpt>

General Motors Co. announced Monday at the Beijing auto show that it will begin building its all-new 2013 Cadillac XTS sedan in China this year and later will bring the ELR luxury electric coupe in the country.

The production announcements mark a significant step in GM's push for Cadillac to become a global brand.

"Introducing the XTS is part of our strategy of adding one new model per year to our Cadillac lineup in China through 2016 to address the needs of luxury car buyers nationwide," GM Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson said in a statement.

ELR technology details, production location and its Chinese introduction date will be announced at a later time, according to a news release. The XTS will be available in the fourth quarter in China and will be manufactured by Shanghai General Motors, a partnership between GM and SAIC Motor Corp.

The announcement follows a report earlier this month in The Detroit News that GM was expected to announce at the auto show that it would build XTS in China later this year. Joel Ewanick, GM's global chief marketing officer, also told The News that the all-new Cadillac ATS, a compact luxury sedan, and the popular midsize CTS sedan will eventually be built in China.

Ewanick said GM will build its brand in China and then Europe to grow the brand over the next decade.

(Reuters) - GM CEO Dan Akerson said on Monday that the company would expand its dealership network in China this year by about 600. "We will expand our dealer network to 3,500 stores from the 2,900 that we ended up with in 2011," he told reporters.

One more way that GM says "Thanks America for the bailout!" :angry:

They got paid by our tax dollars to close their factories here and move them to China and we picked up all of the cost to do so.

Our federal government has been deliberately giving corporations our tax dollars to close their factories here and take them overseas, thanks to the foreign elites who own our politicians, banks and the most of the corporations.

I know that many here hate all unions and are very happy that the union types here all lost their jobs over this, but that is VERY unAmerican and VERY unpatriotic, I don't care who you are.

I don't know how this is different than having factories in Mexico to build the cars, except that China is our economic enemy.

Well, fair is fair - now GM can swindle Chinese buyers the way they've been swindling American buyers for years, by taking a POS and calling it a Cadillac just because it has a cadillac badge on the grill.

Like, how in the '80s the stuck a cadillac badge on a J-car and called it the Cimarron.

Or, how in the '90s, they rebadged the Opel Omega into the Cadillac Catera.

Or, in the '00s, the same thing turning a Saab 9-3 into a Cadillac BLS.
