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.
