Two possibilities:Do a Whois search on it and says it was created 2005-05-30
interesting when you do an ASIC search on Cadillac Australia it says
Business name: CADILLAC (GM) AUSTRALIA
Registration date: 10/07/2008
Renewal date: 11/07/2019
Cancelled date: 21/11/2019
1) It's entering Australia under an "International" banner, probably as Holden or "GM Australia" is basically done for
2) Cadillac is no longer headed for Australia
Either way, it's GM continuing to retreat and more evidence of the slow erosion of commitment to Cadillac and "hard" markets that are letting you know GM is going down the tubes.
Dirt cheap isn't zero cost, so I still wouldn't count on RHD.I suspect a Chinese Buick will be the next Commodore and possibly another Buick for an Astra replacement. The Chinese Buicks are getting pretty bloody good.Volvo is sourcing their XC40 from there for the Australian market, consumers will get slowly used to it if there is a value story, it wont work if you are charging German Commodore money.
Regardless Holden needs a broader range, the other brands are have close to double the models that Holden offer now. Id bring back the Spark, those cars are a good hedge for a slowing economy. New baby Trailblazer and Bolt look pretty likely for Australia.
I see a bright future for Holden. I have lived through the rumours around Mitsubishi and Ford leaving Australia. The key difference now is the massive GM investments in VSS platforms across all lines that are designed to be dirt cheap for RHD and the big investment by GM in EVs that could be a huge turning point for vehicle markets everywhere.
The dealers need volume and buyers need reassurance. It would be good to have Mark Reuss or Mary Barra giving a statement of GM commitment to Australia and with a concrete example of a new or replacement model coming to Australia (excluding Corvette). Buyers need to hear it to give them the excuse to go ahead with a purchase or put Holden on the shopping list.
