gm sends chinese caddy to the uae

GM has announced that it will begin exporting its Chinese-made Cadillac SLS (a.k.a. STS stretch) to the Middle East in the first quarter of 2008. Huliq reports Shanghai General Motors Co. Ltd will debut the SLS in Dubai at the Middle East International Auto Show later this month. This will be the first export deal for the Chinese Caddy, which went on sale in the military dictatorship known as The People's Republic of China in March. Cadillac GM Jim Taylor believes the SLS "will be just as successful with luxury car consumers [in the Middle East] as it has been in China." There are no plans to bring the the big Caddy cruiser stateside. Meanwhile, GM's Chinese sales rose by 128 percent year-to-date. [Spin alert: the actual number of vehicles sold may be quite small.]
