China Paves Way for 16th Straight Month of Global Growth for Cadillac in September
Cadillac kept up its winning ways with a 16th consecutive month of year-over-year growth in September. Cadillac’s global sales totaled 35,020 vehicles, up 16.5% from sales in September 2016 and led once again by another month of monster growth in China.
“This continues to be an exciting time for Cadillac as we are enticing new, younger buyers while simultaneously further solidifying our global footprint,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “Ground-breaking new technologies like Super Cruise, the first truly hands-free driving technology for the freeway available on the 2018 Cadillac CT6, coupled with our aggressive product offensive beginning next year will help carry this positive momentum for continued growth.”
