Cadillac is planning to announce a new distribution arrangement for the UK and Europe by the time of March’s Geneva motor show.
Cadillac is weighing ‘multiple proposals’ for the distribution arrangements, which are thought to include various different independent distributors and the possibility of Vauxhall/Opel taking over the responsibility itself.
"We’ve got multiple proposals along all those lines and we’ll make a decision soon. I’d like to be at Geneva with a solution,” said Cadillac general manager Bryan Nesbitt.
Cadillac needs a new distributor because its previous arrangement came to an end last year when its Dutch partner Kroymans hit financial trouble. As a result sales are declining.
But the company desperately needs new and solid distribution arrangements in the UK and Europe because a new range of cars with a more subtle design language are on their way.
