General Motors Adds ‘CIL’ and ‘Electra’ to Trademarks

General Motors Adds ‘CIL’ and ‘Electra’ to Trademarks

After yesterday’s reveal that General Motors has trademarked ‘Cadillac LTS,’ news broke that ‘CIL’ and ‘Electra’ has also joined GM’s recent trademark filings.

The Electra trademark could lead to speculation that General Motors is bringing back the Buick Electra, a full-size premium model that was produced from 1959 to 1990. If Electra is indeed a Buick model, it would join the recently spotted ‘Riviera‘ and ‘Grand National‘ trademarks for the brand. It’s easy to speculate what the Electra could come back as, either a new flagship sedan for Buick or maybe even an EV.

The CIL trademark on the other hand, could remain a mystery for quite some time. Unlike the Cadillac LTS trademark, CIL was trademarked on its own (with no Cadillac attached to it) which leads us to believe that it could be for another automaker under GM’s umbrella. On the other hand, it does closely resemble the Cadillac Ciel Concept named that was used for the American automaker’s four-seater convertible.
