Right-hand man

Peter Ruefli, director of premium vehicles for General Motors Asia Pacific, says the right-hand-drive version of the Cadillac CTS is aimed at "high-profile Japanese achievers," although he admits the target group thinks of Cadillac as big, gas-guzzling American cars. Cadillac is aiming for sales of 2,000 in 2002, the model's first year in Japan. Target buyers are 38 to 56 years old.
