Cadillac is a division of the American car producer General Motors (G.M.) that structures and assembles luxury vehicles. Its primary markets are the U.S, Canada, and China. Cadillac motor vehicles are the distributor in 34 additional markets around the world. Cadillac cars are at the highest point of the luxury field within the U.S. In 2017, Cadillac's U.S. sales were 156,440 vehicles, and its worldwide sales were 356,467 vehicles.
Cadillac is one of the first automobile brands on the planet, second in the U.S. only to a brand like G.M. marque Buick. The company was established from the remainders of the Henry Ford Company in 1902. It was named after Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, who founded Detroit, Michigan. The Cadillac crest is taken from his coat of arms.
If you have ever seen images or heard much about the first cars, you may know that they required hand-cranking to begin. The motivation to develop and use an electric starter actually originated from a personal experience of Leland, Cadillac's co-founder. A companion of his family was in a mishap while hand-wrenching a vehicle that ended his life, so electric starters had a special meaning for Leland. About ten years after the first Cadillac was launched at the New York Auto Show, the first electric starter showed up in a Cadillac car. Modern cars all contain electric starters, so this innovation was a game-changer in the business.
