Cadillac global sales rise 10 percent in September

GAINS IN NORTH AMERICA, CHINA DRIVE SURGE

With substantial gains in its top three markets, Cadillac global sales increased 10 percent in September to 24,593 units.  U.S. sales rose 7.8 percent, while increases in China and Canada were 14.7 percent and 34.6 percent, respectively.

“Following a disciplined strategy led by increasing product substance, stronger transaction prices and lower incentives, we have a stronger foundation for growth,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen.

Cadillac’s ATS sport sedan and coupe models increased 43 percent in September, and 31 percent year to date. Strong demand continues in China for the long-wheelbase ATS-L model while U.S. customers received initial deliveries of the high-performance V-Series. 

The SRX luxury crossover continues to be in strong demand, especially in the U.S., driving an increase of 30 percent in September.

Total Cadillac sales globally are up 3.2 percent for the year to date.
