GM to Boost Cadillac Showrooms in China to Challenge Audi

General Motors Co., the largest foreign automaker in China, will increase the number of Cadillac dealerships in the country by about 25 percent as it competes against German luxury automakers led by Volkswagen AG’s Audi.

The Detroit-based company will add about 40 dealers for its upscale Cadillac brand next year, up from about 160 currently, Bob Socia, GM’s China president, said in an interview yesterday. The automaker plans to open 400 more showrooms across its brands in 2013 in China, bringing its total to about 4,200 in the world’s largest vehicle market.
