NEW YORK -- General Motors is preparing to sell electric versions of its luxury Cadillac brand, challenging Tesla and other high-end competitors in China's growing market for environmentally friendly vehicles.

GM already offers various electric vehicles like the Chevrolet Bolt. The company looks to extend the option to Cadillacs, which are popular among wealthy Chinese, in hopes of capturing a bigger piece of the world's largest car market -- both for conventional and electric autos.
