The GM Authority Take
Cadillac China sales experienced healthy growth during the second quarter of 2019, increasing 37 percent compared to the same timeframe of 2018. In this fashion, GM’x luxury brand quickly recovered from the fall in sales experienced during the first quarter of 2019, the first decline after several consecutive quarters of rapid growth in the Chinese market.
It’s worth noting that Cadillac was the only brand of GM’s five Chinese vehicle brands that saw positive sales during the second quarter. Not only does this chain of events buck the trend within GM, but also in the overall Chinese automotive market, which is seen sales fall as a result of weaker demand for automobiles.
The growth in Cadillac China sales so far this year is the result of the addition of the all-new XT4 and updated CT6, which were launched in the market with particularly competitive prices. To support this growth, Cadillac recently introduced the 2020 Cadillac XT5 refresh and the all-new Cadillac XT6, the latter of which is the first large luxury SUV produced in China. In the next few months, the brand will launch the Cadillac CT5, which will replace the ATS-L in China’s most competitive luxury segment.
