Cadillac may be an American-based automaker, although its sales are really dominating the Chinese market. According to Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen, Cadillac prepares to make China their largest market under the next three years. However, current trends show this may happen under the next few months.
In June, Cadillac had 12,886 car sales in China, a 34.9 percent boost over this time last year. The substantial uptick hints that Cadillac sales in China are rapidly catching up (or passing) United States sales. Year-to-date, Cadillac has 80,557 vehicle sales in China, a 75.4 percent boost over their 2016 year-to-date sales figure of 45,818. At this moment, Cadillac is beating present US sales of 72,073 vehicle, however we can’t ensure this corresponds to larger year-end China sales.
China has always been a huge part of Cadillac’s new sales strategies as was explained when they chose to develop the CT6 plug-in hybrid there. All great deal of sales can be credited to the boost in sales of the XT5 crossover.
