China continues love affair with Cadillac

Cadillac continues global push as sales continue to grow

Gone are the days of Cadillac cars being the domain simply of U.S. luxury car buyers – today more Cadillacs are delivered in overseas markets than the brand’s traditional home base.

Cadillac global sales figures for October 2017 have been released by GM and show the brand handed over 33,092 vehicles to customers in the month.

That total is 17.2% ahead of the Cadillac sales total in October 2016 and represents the 17th consecutive month of sales growth for the brand.

While sales across the first 10 months of 2017 are ahead by nearly 50,000 cars compared to the same period last year.

Driving much of the growth is the ever-growing demand for Cadillac vehicles in China.

Of the just over 33,000 total global sales for Cadillac in October, just over 17,000 cars went to the Asian nation, a total a mammoth 36% up on the same month last year.

Just under 14,000 Cadillacs were sold in the US, and the rest of the world made up just 2,143 of the sales.

Albeit, that rest of the world total was nearly 20% up on the same month in 2016.

Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen welcomed the increasing global demand for Cadillac vehicles.

“For the past 17 months, our global sales have continued to grow, further elevating our standing as a major luxury automaker,”

“We are building a strong foundation for Cadillac’s long-term success and will continue to increase our momentum with the introduction of the XT4 crossover in 2018 (as seen below).”
