Cadillac has yet to unveil its new concept at the 2010 Detroit auto show, but folks in Canada claim the so-called XTS will be built in Oshawa, Ontario come 2012.
CTV claims a group of suppliers, known as the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association, reportedly received word that the Oshawa facility would ultimately become the birthplace of the XTS. To accommodate the extra production, a third shift of roughly 1000 workers would be needed.
A Cadillac spokesman declined to confirm or deny the report, but did indicate the memo was “pure speculation.”
Although the details surrounding Cadillac’s future flagship (and its assembly location) are still murky at this point, it’s safe to bet that Oshawa will see some increase in its workforce. The plant is already home to the Chevrolet Impala and Camaro (the latter still witnessing tremendous consumer demand), and will manufacture the new 2011 Buick Regal when production is relocated from Germany.
