  • U.S. AND CHINA MARKET GROWTH POWERS RESULTS
In July Cadillac sold 24,769 new vehicles globally, an increase of 20.9 percent. The sharp increase was driven by the brand’s newest models, the CT6 prestige sedan and XT5 luxury crossover, as well as the ATS product line supported by continued strong growth in China.

The new XT5 sold 8,130 units in July, the most since its launch this past spring. Sales of Cadillac’s sporty ATS sedan and coupe models grew 32 percent globally in July. Benefitting from an acceleration in its production rate, the Escalade’s sales increased again in July, with sales up 4.3 percent overall in 2016.  
In the U.S., the brand experienced volume growth while continuing to earn a premium position in the marketplace. Cadillac average transaction prices topped $53,000 per unit (according to J.D. Power Information Network), the highest among full-line luxury brands.
“Product substance forms the foundation of our disciplined approach to global expansion,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “Elevating every aspect of the business is how we earn incremental volume growth while simultaneously building brand prestige.”
