Cadillac CTS-V Luxury Sedan India Launch In 2012–Specifications Features & Price


Cadillac is one of the most sophisticated and iconic brands in existence across many of the well developed automobile markets and the cars that the brand offers are meant to be loved more than they are driven. This brand has its own charm which is unmatched and more importantly their products have a very distinguished road presence.

Unlike Mercedes-Benz, BMW or Audi, Cadillac’s products are quite uncommon but since our market is emerging very rapidly, the company may not have to face the hardships establishing their roots in it. Chevrolet who is achieving new heights everyday with cars like Chevrolet Beat and Chevrolet Cruze will assist Cadillac while entering India and all this is expected to happen in the year 2012.


Karl Slym, the president of GM India, had commented on GM’s Cadillac plans for India and here are his words, “Our Chevrolet brand is doing extremely well as every 8 seconds somebody buys our cars. This is a good indicator and India is a growing market with the demand for luxury cars growing…we are looking at introducing our premium brand, Cadillac over the next couple of years. Cadillac is a luxury brand and people in India have a brand recall for the same. We have also done a study and have found that it will not be difficult for us to launch the iconic brand in the country”


Although nothing is transparent right now about which cars will be introduced initially but expectedly Cadillac CTS-V Sedan will make its debut. Other than this luxury sedan, Cadillac CTS-V Coupe could also make its place in the line-up.
