Global sales of Cadillac vehicles totaled 32,292 units in December 2015, a 24.5 percent increase on a year-over-year basis.
“Cadillac’s global expansion is building momentum, driven by increasing product substance and disciplined growth strategies,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “Not only did volume grow, but Cadillac’s transformed products earned higher transaction prices from customers, driving lower inventory levels. This creates a strong foundation for our two all-new products launching in the first half of 2016 – the CT6 prestige sedan and the XT5 luxury crossover.”
Driven by strong sales of the ATS Sedan, ATS Coupe, SRX crossover and Escalade SUV, sales of all Cadillac models were up in December.

Average Transaction Prices
The average transaction price (ATP) of a new Cadillac topped $51,000 in the U.S. in 2015, second highest in the industry among all full-line luxury brands. Strong demand in the U.S. has driven inventories below the 50-day level, as Cadillac gears up to launch two new product lines in the first quarter of 2016.
Future Cadillac products include the range-topping 2016 Cadillac CT6 sedan in the first quarter of 2016 followed closely by the 2017 Cadillac XT5 midsize crossover, which enters the luxury market’s strongest segment.
Production of the CT6 will commence in the historic Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Plant in February. Concurrently, the first-ever XT5 is being prepared for production at a newly-commissioned line in Spring Hill, Tennessee. The arrival of the midsize crossover enables Cadillac to be well-positioned to take advantage of the strong global demand for midsize luxury crossover vehicles.
