Designed to provide responsive, all electric driving for daily commutes while maximizing fuel efficiency, Cadillac’s new 2017 CT6 Plug-in Hybrid prestige sedan will go on sale in North America next spring.
Company officials say the all-electric range for the CT6 Plug-in Hybrid is an estimated 30 miles, but the vehicle’s combination of efficient engine and battery power enables drivers with more than 400 miles of total driving range.
“The CT6 is a technological showcase throughout, and by far the lightest car in its class, making it an ideal platform for electrification,” says Johan de Nysschen, president of Cadillac. “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.”
The CT6 Plug-in Hybrid is expected to have fuel economy estimated at 65 miles per gallon equivalence.
The hybrid vehicle features a new rear wheel drive electric variable transmission. The two-motor EVT system combines with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four- cylinder gas engine, which helps the vehicle go from a zero to 60 mph in an estimated 5.2 seconds.
The CT6 Plug-in Hybrid will be available for just over $75,000, plus a $995 destination freight charge before any applicable electric vehicle tax incentives.
In the U.S. market, the CT6 Plug-in Hybrid will also be offered as its own package within the CT6 product line, with pricing and equipment comparable to the existing Premium Luxury model. The Plug-in model includes optional equipment, such as a Rear Seat Infotainment system, Enhanced Night Vision, and Rear Camera mirror.
