General Motors will develop at least one car based on its new global vehicle platforms in the US for sale in China. According to its Vice Chairman, Bob Lutz, in a statement made during an interview in Paris, GM will build a new long-wheelbase luxury vehicle in China, which will likely be called the Buick Royaume. It’s still early days, which means nothing has been confirmed yet but it’s likely that GM’s Zeta rear-wheel drive architecture will be the choice of platform.
Zeta, which the upcoming Camaro is based, will spawn several other models including large sedans for the likes of Buick, Pontiac and Chevrolet brands. Further, the first Zeta product has already gone in sale in Australia in the form of the VE Commodore. Importantly, Zeta can be used in whole range of vehicles including coupes and large SUVs.
