The first vehicles in GM's luxury Cadillac arsenal have arrived on local shores and we have the initial prices.
After its first local unveiling at last year's Auto Africa, Cadillac's mid-sized sedan, the BLS, and its SRX SUV are first up with the large STS sedan arriving in the third quarter of 2007.
Five dealerships have been set up across the country in Johannesburg, Nelspruit, Cape Town, Durban and Bloemfontein. This line-up will within the next six months be bolstered by the addition of extra dealerships in Pretoria and Klerksdorp.
GMSA, with the introduction of Cadillac, hopes to significantly increase its presence in the luxury segment of the local market.
"Cadillac forms an important part of our plan to grow our business and share of the market in South Africa," GM South Africa president and managing director Robert Socia said.
Cadillacs will be sold alongside Saab and Hummer in the company's new multi-brand dealerships.
