Cadillac will offer a plug-in hybrid version of its upcoming top-of-the-line model, the Cadillac CT6, originally revealed at this year’s New York Auto Show. The CT6 PHEV will use two electric motors combined with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo gas engine.
Power is rated at 335 horsepower and 432 lb.-ft. of torque, with Automotive News reporting that all-electric range will be around 60 kilometres. The CT6 PHEV’s two electric motors will be powered by a 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery. It can be charged by either a 120 or 240-volt outlet.
Like the Cadillac ELR, the CT6 PHEV will offer a mode that allows the EV motor to be completely locked out. Called “Hold”, it joins both “Normal” and “Sport” modes. An all-new Electric-Variable Transmission (EVT) will send power to the rear wheels.
According to Cadillac, the CT6 PHEV will be twice as economical as standard CT6 models.
