The Cadillac Society Take

U.S. Cadillac sales suffered a significant double-digit decline during the third quarter of the year, when the luxury marque as well as the automotive industry at large were severely affected by the ongoing shortage of semiconductor chips. The circumstance caused major disruptions in the supply chain of most automakers, including Cadillac, while negatively impacting vehicle production. For Cadillac, the drop experienced during the third quarter interrupts three consecutive quarters of healthy growth, while being the first negative result that Cadillac has recorded in the U.S. market since Q3 2020.

Most Cadillac models suffered major declines on a year-over-year basis. The Cadillac XT4 was impacted the most, posting a contraction of 91 percent, or 5,778 units compared to the third quarter of last year. By contrast, the new Cadillac Escalade scored a massive triple-digit increase that strengthened its position as the marque’s best-selling model, while also remaining the undisputed leader in the full-size luxury SUV segment.

  1. Intel CEO Gelsinger recently said there is no shortage of chips. There is only shortage of obsolete chips because chip manufacturers refuse to make obsolete trash and are making sufficient supply of modern chips. Unfortunately car manufacturers refuse to buy quality modern chips and want to buy only obsolete cheap trash. I agree with the Intel CEO.

  2. Other than phones, I wonder how much the video game industry played in this chip shortage?
