February also marked a new low for the Cadillac ELR: Cadillac did not sell a single ELR in February, down from the 91 examples it sold just one year ago.

Sales of the Cadillac XT5 totaled 4,291 units in February, 6.8% better than overall sales of the SRX in February 2016. Sales of the XT5 accounted for nearly 40% of all of Cadillac’s February sales; with 8,174 units sold through two months, the XT5 accounts for 38.7% of all Cadillac sales thus far this year. Retail deliveries of the XT5 in February were also 6% higher than last year’s SRX sales. Sales of the SRX totaled 21 units.
