The Buick LaCrosse isn’t the only Buick passenger car dying off soon. Buick has confirmed the Cascada convertible will meet its death later this summer. The news comes as little surprise given the death of its donor car, the Opel Cascada, was recently announced by manufacturer Groupe PSA.
A report in Automotive News says GM has instructed Buick dealers to make their final orders for the Cascada shortly; advising to order enough to last the rest of 2019. Given Buick has only sold about 17,000 copies of the Cascada since it launched in 2016, dealers probably won’t need to order many to meet projected demand. Production of the Cascada will end in Poland sometime this summer.
Although the Cascada has not sold in big numbers, Buick claims the car played the role it expected within its product portfolio. Although Buick has not given many specifics, a spokesperson did claim that 6 of every 10 Cascada buyers are new to GM, indicating a 60 percent conquest rate on the car.
Despite its later announcement, the Cascada will stay in production longer than the Buick LaCrosse sedan. The LaCrosse is slated to end production next month. The deaths will leave Buick dealers with the Regal as the brand’s sole passenger car.
