Cadillac has been a hot topic of late, due to a number of key items such as the appointment of Johan de Nysschen, the nomenclature change, and the move to New York. Speaking with Reuters, Johan de Nysschen spoke about what the future holds for the luxury brand.
A key part of de Nysschen's plan for Cadillac is to expand the lineup with the introduction of five to ten models by 2020. One of those models is a range-topping luxury sedan that will go on sale at the end of the decade and likely will be called CT8 or CT9. This model will compete with the likes of long-wheelbase models and has been signed off by him.
de Nysschen also talked and hinted at some of the other models in pipeline. These models include,
- Plug-In Hybrid version of the CT6
- Successor to the ELR, but it might not be a two-door coupe
- Smaller crossover to sit underneath the SRX, along with a larger model
- Smaller sedan to sit underneath the ATS
Industry sources tell Reuters that Cadillac has been quietly talking with them about the small and large crossover, along with the small sedan. They explain that small crossover is due out in 2017, followed by the large crossover between 2017 and 2018; and then the small sedan in 2018.
