Cadillac global sales rise 16.9% in November

INCREASES IN TOP THREE GLOBAL MARKETS DRIVE GROWTH

Cadillac global sales increased 16.9 percent in November to 23,241 units.  For the year to date, Cadillac sales are up 5.6 percent worldwide.

 “Approaching the year-end period, Cadillac’s increasing product substance and disciplined growth strategies are building momentum,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “In the U.S. market we are commanding higher transaction prices, with lower incentive and inventory levels. It means the customer is recognizing and placing a higher value on the excellence of the new generation of products from Cadillac. This is a strong foundation for our upcoming expansion in 2016.”

Cadillac launches the range-topping CT6 sedan in the first quarter of 2016, followed closely by the first-ever XT5 luxury crossover which enters the luxury market’s strongest segment.

In November, Cadillac sales rose in all three of its largest markets, led by a 57 percent increase in China. Global sales of Cadillac’s ATS product line increased 51 percent, led by continued strong performance in China.

The SRX crossover increased 37 percent, In November, Cadillac debuted the upcoming 2017 XT5, at auto shows in Dubai and Los Angeles.  Slated to launch in the first half of 2016 and featuring new design and technology throughout, the XT5 is well positioned to exploit the strong global demand for midsize luxury crossover vehicles.
