Sales in China grew 98.4 percent in April, following the all-time record set in 2016 in the world's largest market. For the year-to-date, Cadillac sales in China are up 92.5 percent, and 32 percent globally.

'When we launched our strategy for the transformation of Cadillac almost three years ago, we announced that our focus would be on product substance, expansion of the portfolio, strengthening the quality of business, and an enhanced delivery experience,' said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. 'We knew it would take time, but that robust sales would eventually follow. Our operational results are a vindication of the strategy, and new products like XT5 and CT6 provide a strong statement about our commitment to excellence in execution.'
