The Cadillac Society Take

The significant increase in Cadillac China sales during the second quarter of the year means that the Asian country has regained its position as the marque’s largest market by volume, after being surpassed by the United States in Q1 2023. The performance represents a drastic improvement from the 32,500 units delivered in the first quarter of this year and 18,600 units more than Q2 2022.

While Cadillac China doesn’t release sales results on a per model basis, it did report that the Cadillac CT5 was the main driver of Q2 sales growth. The sedan performed exceptionally well, strengthening its position as the brand’s best-selling vehicle in the Chinese market by achieving  a very high volume of nearly 26,000 units, nearly half of Cadillac’s total sales in the quarter.

In addition, the luxury marque shared that the Cadillac XT5 and CT4 also saw healthy increases in registrations, though it didn’t disclose any concrete sales figures. For its part, the all-new Cadillac Lyriq seems to have posted an improvement in sales over the prior quarter, which represented the first full quarter that the electric crossover was for sale in China.

  1. It is shameful that China imports and assembles more Cadillacs than all of the U.S. which has many ignorant buyers still believing that other foreign luxury cars are better than Cadillacs. Those buyers are not true Americans!

  2. Agreed

  3. But isn’t Cadillac in China a joint venture with a local company (so only half the per-vehicle profit)? And what if the Party decides to nationalize the joint venture’s assets?
