Global sales of new Cadillac vehicles totaled 31,330 units in January 2018, an increase of 5.2 percent year-over-year, marking the 20th consecutive month of global sales growth for the brand.
“With a strong start to 2018, our results show that consumers across the globe are continuing to respond positively to Cadillac products,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “Enthusiasm continues to grow both in the sedan market as well as in the SUV segment, despite new entrants into the category. These results give us confidence as we head into a momentous year, marked by an aggressive product offensive beginning with the introduction of the all-new Cadillac XT4 later this year.”
January 2018 Cadillac Sales By Model
Cadillac did not provide sales on a per-model basis for January, a practice that the brand began to implement at the end of 2016.
The brand did, however, state that sales were spurred by the Cadillac XT5 luxury crossover, which remains Cadillac’s top-selling product with a total of 12,113 units delivered worldwide thus far in 2018, thereby accounting for roughly 39 percent of all Cadillac sales for the month.
What’s more, Cadillac sedan sales were also strong in January, with sales of CT6 up 24.3 percent, XTS up 12.5 percent and ATS up 4.9 percent.
