The Cadillac Society Take

Despite suffering a not-insignificant decrease in sales volume, Cadillac China sales in the second quarter registered a significant recovery compared to the results reported during the first quarter of 2020, which saw the luxury automaker severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The luxury marque doubled sales volume quarter-over-quarter, from selling 26,804 units in Q1 2020 to 58,500 vehicles during Q2 2020.

The quarter-over-quarter increase was not enough to bring the year-over-year results into the green. As a result, Q2 2020 represents Cadillac’s third consecutive decline sales volume in the Chinese market.

Although it’s normal for Cadillac not to report sales figures on a model basis, Cadillac did not even make any general comments about the sales performance of any models, which is a departure from norm.

According to Cadillac Society sources in China, the Cadillac XT4 and the all-new CT5 sedan surpassed sales of the XT5 in the second quarter. The two models will likely become the brand’s best-selling models in the market in the near- to medium-term future.
