WORLDWIDE SALES JANUARY - CADILLAC - China sales mean the bran has seen a massive sales jump.

Cadillac sold 29,764 vehicles in January, a 44.2 percent increase. This is the eighth consecutive month of double-digit percentage increases for Cadillac.
Driven by the new XT5, Cadillac sales in the midsize luxury crossover category – the industry’s strongest segment -- grew 51.7%. 
The XT5 sold 11,880 units in January. Cadillac’s ATS sport sedan and coupe product line rose 63.8%, and the XTS luxury sedan saw sales increase 29.3%.

Cadillac continued its massive growth in China, the world’s largest market, with sales rising 116% in January. In the U.S., Cadillac retail sales increased 1.2%.   However total U.S. sales declined overall (4.1%) driven by a reduction in sales to commercial fleet customers. 
“Cadillac begins 2017 with a continuation of the robust global growth of 2016, a year in which we sold more products worldwide than any point in the past three decades,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “We are growing the business significantly and attracting a youthful and affluent demographic, elevating the aspirational character of the brand.  This is particularly the case in China, where our growth is explosive and sustained."
