Cadillac global sales rise 16.9 Percent in October

DOUBLE-DIGIT INCREASES IN ALL LARGE MARKETS DRIVE GROWTH

With substantial gains in its top four markets, Cadillac global sales increased 16.9 percent in October to 23,250 units.  U.S. sales rose 13 percent, and the brand’s sales grew in China (23.4 percent) Canada (46.5 percent) and the Middle East (15.3 percent).

“Cadillac’s increasing product substance and disciplined brand and marketplace strategies are building momentum,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “The expansion continues in the months to come with the launch of both the first-ever CT6 at the top of our car range, and the first-ever XT5 crossover in the luxury market’s strongest segment.” 

The SRX Crossover increased 46 percent for the month. In November, Cadillac debuts the SRX’s successor, 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 mid-size luxury crossover vehicles.

Cadillac’s ATS product line increased 29.5 percent in October, and the Escalade increased 44.2 percent 

Total Cadillac sales globally are up 4.5 percent for the year to date.
