Cadillac Canada operates under General Motors (GM) Canada. The origins of GM Canada can be traced back to the Oshawa Carriage Works. Robert Mclaughlin, a farmer, started the carriage plant around 1877. In 1908, Robert’s sons started making cars using Buick engines and created the McLaughlin Motor Car Company. The company began to make Chevrolet cars in 1916. General Motors (GM) decided to buy the McLaughlin company in 1918. This acquisition started General Motors of Canada. Today Cadillac cars are produced in GM Canada’s Oshawa manufacturing plant.
Cadillac company was born in 1902. It started on Henry Ford’s second ruined attempt to build an automotive company. Ford’s investors wanted to recoup their expense. They hired a machinist Henry Leland to assess the business, but Leland managed to convince them to keep the project alive. In 1902, the first Cadillac was introduced. By 1904, around 2,500 Cadillacs were sold. In 1909, William C. Durant convinced Henry Leland to sell Cadillac for $4.5 million General Motor stocks. Over the years, Cadillac has become a luxury brand each time more and more exclusive. Currently, Cadillac XT5 and Escalade are the most popular models.
