New flagship Cadillac goes into production in late 2015, to be built in Detroit

We have seen the Elmiraj concept and also spy photos of Cadillac’s new top of the line RWD luxury saloon.

Cadillac has now confirmed this new top-end, high-technology car will go into production in the fourth quarter of 2015 at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant.

The as-yet unnamed Cadillac could be called LTS (trademarked recently by Cadillac) or STS as the discontinued flagship model.

“The objective for this upcoming model is to lift the Cadillac range by entering the elite class of top-level luxury cars,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “Currently in development, this new rear wheel drive-oriented sedan uses completely new, custom-designed materials on a unique vehicle architecture.

This new Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7 Series and Audi A8 rival will debut already in the first half of next year, possibly at the New York Auto Show.
