    Cadillac Global Sales Rise 33.8 Percent in May

    Cadillac globally sold 29,738 units in May 2017, an increase of 33.8 percent – driven by strong year-over-year growth in all markets. May marked the 12th consecutive month of double-digit growth for Cadillac, and continued execution of the brand’s globalization strategy.

    Cadillac sales have increased 32 percent globally year to date. In the midsize luxury crossover category – the industry’s strongest segment – the sustained popularity of the acclaimed XT5 has resulted in a 43.6 percent sales increase so far in 2017. The new luxury crossover was the brand’s best seller worldwide in May, totaling 11,735 units. In addition, sales of Cadillac’s ATS sport sedan and coupe models grew 45.2 percent for the month, while the XTS luxury sedan rose 20.7 percent.

    Despite continued contraction in the US market for luxury sedans, which represent the mainstay of the Cadillac product portfolio at present, Cadillac achieved strong growth in the U.S. in May, with sales increasing 9.2 percent. This was achieved due to the strong demand for the XT5 and iconic Escalade models. The average transaction price for a new Cadillac in the U.S. in May continues to remain above $54,000, the second highest amongst major luxury automotive brands.

    In Asia, the brand grew over 65 percent, thanks to a robust performance in China, South Korea and Japan.

    “Cadillac has earned double-digit monthly gains in global sales growth for an entire year,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “Not only have we increased sales volume with the success of vehicles such as the XT5 luxury crossover, but we also continue to see consumers selecting a richer mix of models, keeping Cadillac’s average transaction prices amongst the highest for a mainstream luxury brand.”

    So 6452 ATS and 5149 XTS also sold based on % increases over last year. These old cars still have some life left in them, just not in the US.

    What do you mean? America is the world. Have you not heard of the World series? When you are in the USA, you do not need to travel the world since you are already there and well traveled. If you live in New York, you do not need to go anywhere, since you are already a ... and live in new York

    Therefore Cadillac is Global.. just like base ball apple pie and US Stealth inter continental ballistic missiles

    'Global' (WRT vehicle sales) means the total number of all sales; everywhere the product is sold.
    'Global' has never been defined as having a minimum number of markets.

    Cadillac's footprint in the US, China, Canada, and the Middle East covers over 45% of the world's GDP. Plus the US and China are the world's largest markets for premium vehicles by a big margin (each of those is roughly 2x the size of the 3rd place, Germany). I'd say that's a pretty reasonable base. Once the brand is more stable in those markets, it can look to broaden the footprint further.
