Buick Excelle Production Gets New Home in China
The next-generation Buick Excelle will be produced at a new plant in Shenyang, China, sources say. It is believed that more production capacity is needed for the Excelle going forward.
The Buick Excelle is Shanghai General Motors’ highest volume model. Buick is one of China’s highest-volume brands, has been extremely successful in capturing and maintaining market share, and many Buick models are considered premium-class cars in China.
The next-generation Excelle will be based on GM’s global Delta platform. The current Excelle shares its platform with the Suzuki Forenza in the U.S., the Holden Viva in Australia, and the Chevrolet Lacetti in Europe.
Planned first-year production of the next-generation Excelle is approximately 170,000 units, say people close to the activity around the future model.
