Report: Cadillac axes super ultraluxury flagship based on the Ciel Concept, BMW 7-Series fighter still on track

Rumors about a flagship Cadillac ultraluxury sedan have been floating around for quite some time with reports indicating that a new top-end Caddy based on the Ciel Concept was in the works. As of now, the latest update is that Cadillac has axed the idea of a ultraluxury flagship, according to a report from AutomotiveNews.

General Motors apparently concluded that a low-volume flagship doesn’t have a substantial enough business case to allow Cadillac to do their thing. But this is not to be confused with Cadillac’s other plans to introduce a rear-wheel drive BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class competitor, which is still on track for a launch date sometime in 2016 or 2017.

It will ride on a supposedly new platform designated Omega, which has been specifically designed for large rear-wheel drive applications.
