GM has announced it wants to export the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade to China.
The large SUVs will continue to be built in the US, and sold in China, so they will attract an import duty. The Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon and Escalade will also be the only models sold by GM in China that aren’t made locally.
To gauge interest the SUVs will be shown at the 2020 China International Import Expo in Shanghai starting next week.
Julian Blissett, head of GM China, told Reuters, “Our intention is to get customer reaction and find a way to sell these cars in China.
“We are looking into a variety of market sales plans for these vehicles, including online sales, leasing and others.”
The SUVs, if they go on sale in China, will target the country’s growing families which are no longer restricted in size by the one child policy.
