Great month for Cadillac world wide. Shows the importance of the Chinese market for Cadillac and GM.
Cadillac US is doing better recently. Fourth consecutive month of monthly sales increases.
Possible to finish the year in the black.
It’s certainly possible to finish the year in the black in the U.S. market. Would be great if that happens, though I don’t see huge jumps in overall volume until the upcoming crossovers and sub-ATS model arrive.
China is definitely contributing a lot to the global sales growth. Unfortunately, those sales are only half as profitable as they are in other markets due to the 50-50 joint venture in the market. But half of 12,500 sales is better than half of nothing. 🙂
Wow, 9,421 XT5. Imagine what a XT3 and XT4 could do.
Sounds promising. Good job with new XT5 and CT6.
Cadillac will finish in the black as they are holding profits fine. Now with added volume it will only increase profits.
Something does add up here. The article states:
“On a model basis, sales of all Cadillac models currently in production — the ATS, CTS, XTS and Escalade — increased year-over-year.”
But then says, “Cadillac CTS sales decreased 10.1 percent to 1,808 units.”
Thank you Walter; that was our mistake. Now fixed.
I just got my CT6 a little over a week ago. Not as refined as my Lexus but it’s nice and big and the tech is good. One defect that is irking me is that when remote starting the car using the OnStar RemoteLink app the air conditioning, while on, does not actuate the vent dampers so the cold air cannot escape into the cabin. So on a 95 degree day in Miami, the car can be running for up to ten minutes with the AC on and when you get into it it’s still over 100 degrees inside the car. Only when you press the ignition button on the car do you hear the dampers actuate and the cold air comes out full blast. I have contacted Cadillac but they are replying with canned “Thank you, we’ll look into it” messages. Here’s a video I shot of the defect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJLs8fI6Hrc
