2017 CADILLAC CT6 PLUG-IN HYBRID ON SALE IN SPRING 2017, OFFERING AN ESTIMATED 400-PLUS MILES OF TOTAL RANGE

◾Expected rating of 65 MPGe
◾Exhilarating performance: 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds

NEW YORK – Cadillac today announced the first-ever 2017 CT6 Plug-In Hybrid prestige sedan will go on sale in the spring of 2017, wîth a total driving range of more than 400 miles.

Advanced plug-in hybrid technology enables the luxury sedan to reward drivers wîth environmentally conscious driving without compromising on performance. The CT6 Plug-In Hybrid system is designed to provide responsive, all-electric driving for most daily commutes, while maximizing fuel efficiency by providing blended power from the engine and battery at higher speeds and higher loads.

All-electric range for the CT6 Plug-In Hybrid is an estimated 30 miles. However, the car's combination of efficient engine and battery power enables drivers the freedom of more than 400 miles of total driving range, wîth no requirement to find charging stations along the way. Thanks to the advanced propulsion system, the CT6 Plug-In Hybrid removes all range anxiety for our customers.

'The CT6 is a technological showcase throughout, and by far the lightest car in its class, making it an ideal platform for electrification,' said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. 'In the CT6, Cadillac presents a new formula for prestige luxury. The advanced Plug-In Hybrid system is a key addition, providing a combination of exceptional fuel economy, crisp acceleration and strong electric-driving range.'

Vital Stats
Engine : 2.0 L., 4-cylinder

8-speed Automatic
Cadillac's prestige plug-in hybrid entry achieves the same zero to 60 mph performance as its V6-powered competitors, while achieving roughly twice the full EV range and MPGe figures.


The CT6 Plug-In Hybrid is expected to have fuel economy estimated at 65 MPGe. Miles per gallon equivalence – MPGe – compares energy consumption of plug-in electric vehicles and other advanced technology vehicles wîth the fuel economy of conventional internal combustion vehicles in miles per Ú.S. gallon.

The CT6 Plug-In Hybrid combines an all-new rear wheel drive electric variable transmission to provide the smooth, powerful acceleration expected from a driver's car. The two-motor EVT system combines wîth the 2.0-liter turbocharged four- cylinder gas engine to produce an estimated total system power of 335 hp (250 kW) and 432 lb-ft (586 Nm) of torque. This helps propel the vehicle from a zero to 60 mph in an estimated 5.2 seconds.

Each electric motor produces 100 hp (74.5 kW) of power. On electric power only, the car is capable of approximately 30 miles of driving range and a top speed of 78 mph, wîth the additional power of the engine adding hundreds of miles of total range and a top speed of 150 mph on a track.

The CT6 Plug-In Hybrid launches in North America in the spring of 2017, starting in the Ú.S. at $75,095 plus a $995 destination freight charge before any applicable electric vehicle tax incentives. In the Ú.S. market, the CT6 Plug-In Hybrid will be offered as its own unique package within the CT6 product line, wîth pricing and equipment comparable to the existing Premium Luxury model (second highest within in the model range). The Plug-In model includes numerous optional equipment as standard, such as a Rear Seat Infotainment system, Enhanced Night Vision and Rear Camera mirror.
