Detroit - As it strives to energise its Cadillac brand that once led the US luxury car market, General Motors has announced that it will launch a new "top-end, high-technology car" by the end of 2015.
The as-yet unnamed flagship sedan will be positioned "above today's CTS and XTS product lines," and "will add to rather than replace any model in the portfolio," GM said in a statement.
First sales in the United States are likely by the end of 2015, and sales in China about the same time, said Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell.
FOR THE TOP CLASS
The new odel will be in "the elite class of top-level luxury cars," said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen in the statement. He added that the car, which is in development, will be rear wheel drive-oriented, using "completely new, custom-designed materials on a unique vehicle architecture."
