Prepare to bid farewell to most Cadillac sedans

Expanding Cadillac's global sales is central to GM's overall profit strategy, and Cadillac has reported a 27 percent increase in worldwide sales through the first half of the year.

Once it's down to just the CT5 and CT6, a third, smaller sedan will be added to the lineup to compete with the likes of the Audi A3 and the BMW 2-Series. Over at GM there have been reports that slow sedan sales could lead to the departure of a few of Cadillac's sedans.

The Cadillac sedan lineup is about to be shrunk and simplified, according to CEO Johan de Nysschen via Reuters.

That has forced GM to order layoffs at two MI factories that build Cadillac cars, and raised questions about the long term future of the plants.

Museus, palácios e monumentos registam aumento de 10% no 1º semestre
Segundo os números divulgados pela DGPC, o aumento mais significativo de visitantes verificou-se nos monumentos (12,3%).

Sources had told Reuters last week that GM was considering ending production on six cars including the CT6 and XTS and models from Chevrolet and Buick.

The solution laid out by Cadillac is to let the three cars with the old naming scheme-the CTS, the ATS, and the XTS-die out by the end of the decade.

"We have to rebalance our sedan portfolio", de Nysschen said.
