Next-Gen Buick Regal May Come from Germany, Not Canada

Posted by at 8:53 am on August 4, 2014



The current generation Buick Regal, essentially a rebadged Opel Insignia, is assembled at GM’s Ontario plant in Canada, along with the Chevy Camaro, Cadillac XTS and the Chevrolet Impala. But that may change when the redesigned Regal arrives in mid-2017, as the plant’s future is uncertain.

A new report from AutoNews says the upcoming version of the sedan may be imported from Germany, as GM has made no promises about future investments in the Canadian plant. General Motors has already said that production of the next-generation Camaro, scheduled for the second half of 2015, will move to Lansing, Michigan.

The Chevrolet Impala is already being built at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck plant.  Adds to Opel’s announcement from March this year that the Russelsheim plant will build “a future model which will be sold in the U.S. under the Buick brand name.”
