Cadillac is ready to move on in the hybrid market after failing to find success with its ELR hybrid model. This time the American car brand has reinvented the wheel, so-to-speak, and has given its popular CT6 model a new drivetrain to turn it into a hybrid vehicle.
The CT6 plug-in hybrid model comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine paired with a duo of motors and a large battery pack. This new drivetrain offers a rating of 65 MPGe, with the ability to go 30 miles on just electricity, and 400 miles when joined with the engine.
This special hybrid powertrain makes 335 horsepower and 432-pound-feet of torque. The CT6 Hybrid is pretty quick, too, with a stop-to-60-mph-time of 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph.
Cadillac will offer the plug-in CT6 this coming spring with a price tag of about $76,000. Caddy claims the hybrid will come equipped with the same amenities of the CT6 Premium Luxury, which has a starting price of $64,590. One of the features Cadillac has thrown into the Hybrid CT6 is a $5,800-rated rear seat infotainment system.
When all is said and done the fully equipped hybrid CT6 comes with a price tag that is $1,700 more than its gasoline-powered counterpart. Not a bad deal for extended drivability and a cleaner conscience.
