    Key facts:
    - Cadillac expects to achieve its third-consecutive year of record global sales in 2020.
    - Leading those sales are expected to be double-digit sales gains in China.
    - Not contributing to its U.S. sales much longer will be the Cadillac CT6, which will end production at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant in Michigan at the end of the month.

    DETROIT – Cadillac expects to achieve its third-consecutive year of record global sales in 2020, according to head of the General Motors luxury brand.

    Those expectations, according to Cadillac President Steve Carlisle, will be led by continued double-digit sales gains in China this year despite some economic uncertainty and slowing sales in the country, primarily in the mass-market.

    “We’re still entering new segments in China and we’re still building out a distribution network, so there’s a lot of reasons to believe that we’ll improve volume and share in China this year,” Carlisle told CNBC on Thursday. “It will be double-digit growth again in China.”

    Cadillac’s global sales last year were up 8.8% to roughly 390,000 vehicles compared to 2018, led by a 10.9% increase for Cadillac in China. That compares to Cadillac’s U.S. sales, which were up only 1% to more than 156,000 in 2019.

    China overtook the U.S. as Cadillac’s top sales market in 2017, two years before executives at the time expected.

    A piece of me had hope they'd find a place to continue building the CT6..... sigh.....

    Surprise, surprise, surprise; it's nice to see the growth globally. Now if they could just spur US growth in the haunches. I'm sad though on the other front, the official killing of what I think was a very nice car.

    Look, I'm kind of not sure,but what ever GM is cooking up to replace the CT-6 will be pretty damned amazing (maybe)! We just have to wait till 2022 to see it.

    GM has been super quiet about our future with its products. With so many cars being left to wither and rot on the vine and so much double talk and scrambling of plans something amazing HAS to be coming in 2022 right?!....

    Cadillac, according to Carlisle, will give greater detail about the brand’s EV plans in March.
    Hopefully Carlisle will give us some more information in March!

    what a shame. CT6 was an awesome car, but when I wanted to buy it, they wouldn't let me option it how I wanted it. Bought a different brand because they would.

    This feels like the same initial announcement; CT6 production AT D-HAM is ceasing.
    Weird for that to be included in that sentence, IMO.

    Yes, but they hit 390,000 in 2019 according to the story, how much has really changed since JDN left, I doubt they'd be up or down much from where they are currently at.

    There's supposed to be a press conference Monday outlining the investment GM is making in the D-Ham facility and the products that are going to be produced there. Not sure how detailed it will be as far as products though.

    I'd imagine the Cruise Bot, Hummer, and Cadillac whatever will be mentioned.
