Cadillac, Chevrolet increase Middle East sales in July
In July, Cadillac sales were up 48 percent year-over-year in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region thanks to strong across-the-board results for the CTS, Escalade and SRX, while sales of Chevrolet increased 7 percent.
Cadillac more than doubled sales in the UAE, Qatar and Oman during July, while in Saudi Arabia - Cadillac's largest market - it registered 23 percent sales growth.
Sales of GM's passenger cars performed well in July with an increase of 38 percent in the GCC.
In addition, Chevrolet Spark increased year-over-year sales by 142 percent during the month.
"Cadillac continues to capture the attention and imagination of luxury vehicle buyers across the Middle East, which is being reflected in strong sales growth in 2012," said John Stadwick, President and Managing Director of General Motors Middle East.
"The launch of the XTS and ATS later this year will attract more customers to the brand and provide Cadillac with a comprehensive vehicle line-up that will compete with other premium automotive brands in terms of design, performance and technology."
