GM Middle East sales increased during the 2023 calendar year.
Though Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac brands posted year-over-year sales growth in the Middle East last year, the GM subsidiary elected to only share percentage change figures for select models, without providing any specific sales figures for brands or models.
Sales growth at GM Middle East was driven by several nameplates in 2023, including the Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, GMC Yukon, Cadillac CT4, Cadillac CT5 and Cadillac Escalade. The success of these models amongst customers in the region underscores GM’s commitment to continuing to deliver internal combustion vehicles, while working toward an emissions-free future.
“GM Middle East’s long-term strategy is to continue to deliver exciting and capable vehicles that the region has grown to love, as evident by our year-on-year healthy growth,” said President and Managing Director at GM Africa and Middle East, Jack Uppal. “Forging ahead toward our vision of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, we look forward to another year of milestones towards our contributions in EV and AV infrastructure, community education, and building consumer confidence for a seamless transition,” he added.
The Chevy Tahoe saw sales grow 28 percent, while those of the Chevy Silverado increased 26 percent. Sales of the GMC Yukon grew 11 percent, recording its highest sales volume in almost a decade, while GMC Sierra sales improved 13 percent.
The Cadillac Escalade range saw record sales during the year. In fact, Cadillac as a whole continued on a healthy growth trajectory in the Middle Easter, marking the marque’s second highest sales volume since the 2017 calendar year.
Cadillac’s sedans delivered strong performance, with the Cadillac CT4 recording a drastic increase of 305 percent. The Cadillac CT5, meanwhile, saw its second-highest annual sales figure in the region.
