Shanghai – Cadillac CT6 Plug-in Hybrid confirmed image

Cadillac has recently unveiled the plug-in hybrid version of the new CT6 flagship, during the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show.

The Cadillac CT6 plug-in hybrid has put an end to rumors as the car manufacturer has officially pulled the wraps off its body, in a world premiere, at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show. The model in question is getting the 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which is working together with two electric motors and the rear wheel electric variable transmission. The electric motors are taking their juice from the 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which has been located between the rear seats and the boot and the total output produced by the assembly stands at 335 HP (246 kW) and 586 Nm (432 lb-ft) of torque.

Cadillac says that the plug-in hybrid version of the CT6 will be offered wit three driving modes, the “Normal”, designed with everyday driving in mind, combining the engine and the electric motors, the “Sport”, which is offering a more aggressive pedal mapping with stiffer steering response, and the “Hold”, allowing owners to choose when to use the internal combustion unit and when to rely on electric power. The Cadillac CT6 PHEV is also getting the Regen on Demand system, which is allowing for regeneration through the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters when the vehicle is braking. Expect the new Cadillac CT6 plug-in hybrid in the dealerships over the next few months. No pricing details or an exact launch date have been announced at this time.
