Why do I hear "China" when I read lines like this in US press releases?....and meet the needs of customers around the world.
.....throughout GM vehicle lineups in different countries.
So, at least 5 new models?Overall, Cadillac will introduce new models at the rate of roughly one every six months through 2021.
Ummm.......We had been hearing for some time about a future crossover based on the Bolt that would launch as a Buick. Previously, GM CEO Mary Barra had announced that multiple vehicles would be launching on the Chevy Bolt platform. So far, that has not come to pass.
Engine type: 3.6L V6
Baojun, Jiefang and Wuling?.....which means that the other ~15 that they've mentioned will likely be across all of their brands.
When I see the concept images, I can't help but say Klaatu Barada Nikto！It looks like GM just announced their XT6 EV platform. Looks interesting, though it's just a concept design for now.
My laser eye is powering up...
When you alliterate to movies made almost 7 decades ago, yes you are old.What? No one else thought that? I guess I must be getting old.
Could be, but they did a more recent remake with Will Smith.When you alliterate to movies made almost 7 decades ago, yes you are old.
If I remember correctly this was the phrase used to keep Klaatu (the robot) from destroying the world. Seems like there might be some parallel there for EVs.

We know which all-new XT6 is coming out this year (mid-year) for the U.S., and it ain't the one in the concept illustrations.As reported by Business Insider:
Reportedly the Cadillac brand is doing well in China. So in that market, this may be a smart move.
I just don't think the U.S. on average is looking at GM as an EV provider. This really seems like a perception problem for GM. GM has some work to do to turn this around.
I read yesterday about a recent slump in Bolt sales. Take it for what it's worth though in this day and age of less than responsible reporting. I didn't take the time to verify the claim, sorry. I have low trust in outside sales analysis so it seems like a fruitless effort.They certainly are not building a large number of Bolts
