Cadillac Becomes Fastest-Growing Luxury Brand in 2013
Cadillac was founded in 1902 by Henry Leland and only seven years later, General Motors acquired it. Currently, Caddy is one of the oldest automakers in the world, and it delivers cars to the U.S. and 34 additional markets worldwide.
Cadillac has always been a very successful company, plus it was the first American car to win the Dewar Trophy from the Royal Automobile Club of England. In 2013, however, its success grew even further, as Cadillac enjoyed a 21-percent increase in sales, with almost 185,000 units delivered worldwide. The overall sales number marked the most since 2007 and the overall brand growth made it the fastest-growing luxury brand in 2013, which is obviously a byproduct of the brand’s largest expansion since 1976.
The 2014 ELR had a late hand in boosting the overall sales numbers, as deliveries began in December.
