Global Cadillac sales rose 18.5% year-to-date in November 2017 lead by sales in China, maintaining an 18-month run of consecutive growth, according to General Motors.
General Motors’ luxury brand sold 32,016 units globally in November 2017, and which was bolstered by sales in China, according to the automaker. Sales in the Chinese market were up by 53.7% year over year.
Meanwhile, Canada, South Korea, the Middle East, and Japan also saw sales increases in November.
The XT5 luxury crossover remains the brand’s top-selling product, with a total of 129,971 units delivered worldwide so far in 2017, according to GM. Meanwhile, global sales of the ATS are up 20.2% for the year.
The U.S. luxury car market continues to experience contraction in demand for sedans, but though Cadillac has seen improved sales of the XT5 and the iconic Escalade, which resulted in 8.1% growth in SUV portfolio sales for the year, GM said in a release.
