Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid finally reaching the market image

During the Californian event in 2015 the luxury brand had unveiled the promised greener version of the CT6, with the plug in hybrid capable of a range of about 30 miles (48 kilometers).

And now a year has passed and finally the eco version is reaching the dealerships – though you need to hold your credit cards until next spring to actually have it on your driveway. For now, Cadillac is offering more details about the model – including pricing credentials. By the way, the CT6 plug in is not assembled at home in Detroit just like the regular counterparts, instead being imported from China – the same as with the Buick Envision. The CT6 has a 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack good for as much as 30 miles (48 kilometers) of electric range in the real world – with total autonomy in hybrid mode of more than 400 miles (643 km).

The fuel economy credentials are also great for a luxury sedan – 65 MPGe – and so are the performance numbers: 60 mph (96 kph) sprint done in 5.2 seconds and a maximum speed of 150 mph (241 kph). This is thanks to the turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine mated to a couple of 100-hp electric motors for a grand total of 335 horsepower (250 kilowatts) and 432 pound-feet (586 Newton-meters) of torque. Prices kick off at $75,095 (excluding $995 destination charges) and the trim is equivalent to the standard’s Premium Luxury.
