The Cadillac Society Take
For the third consecutive quarter, Cadillac China sales increased significantly during Q1 2021. The huge increase in the first quarter is not surprising when compared to the same period last year, which was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the results are certainly noteworthy when compared to the 44,684 sales recorded by Cadillac China in Q1 2019. In fact, the 57,400 deliveries represent a new first quarter sales record in the history of the luxury marque in China.
Although Cadillac does not provide model-specific sales figures for its models in the Chinese market, the marque did reveal that the large increase during the first quarter was driven by the new Cadillac CT5 and XT6 in the Asian country. The sedan sold nearly 13,000 units during the first three months of the year, making it the second best-selling Cadillac in China after the ever-popular XT5. In March alone, the CT5 sold 5,251 units in China, which exceeds the 4,374 units sold by the CT5 during Q1 in the US market.
Cadillac’s record-setting performance during Q1 2021 in the Chinese market further consolidates the Asian country as the marque’s primary global market by sales volume. By comparison, Cadillac recorded 37,277 deliveries in the U.S. market during the same timeframe.
