Cadillac’s new CT6 Plug-In Hybrid will go on sale in the spring of 2017. The luxury sedan is expected to deliver an electric range of 30 miles and fuel economy of 65 MPGe. US pricing will start at $75,095 plus a $995 destination charge.
GM has equipped the Caddy with a new rear-wheel-drive electric variable transmission, two 100 hp (74.5 kW) electric motors, and a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine. Total system power is estimated at 335 hp (250 kW), torque at 432 lb-ft (586 Nm) and 0-60 acceleration at 5.2 seconds.
“The CT6 is a technological showcase throughout, and by far the lightest car in its class, making it an ideal platform for electrification,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “In the CT6, Cadillac presents a new formula for prestige luxury. The advanced Plug-In Hybrid system is a key addition, providing a combination of exceptional fuel economy, crisp acceleration and strong electric-driving range.”
