Cadillac CT6 Adds Plug-in Hybrid Model to 2017 Lineup
Wednesday, 16 November, 2016
Cadillac makes a bold return to the hybrid market with the development of the 2017 CT6 Plug-in Hybrid, which blends performance with efficiency like never before. We’ve got all the details on this exciting new model set to arrive at Husker Cadillac in Lincoln
One of the biggest misconceptions about hybrid vehicles is that they don’t offer as much power as their gas-powered counterparts. However, the CT6 arrives to prove just the opposite. Equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, two electric motors and a lithium ion battery, the CT6 Hybrid makes an impressive 335 horsepower and 423 pound-feet of torque. On the road, this offers drivers a combined top speed of 150 miles per hour.
The hybrid utilizes a plug-in unit, however, Cadillac’s “Regen on Demand” regenerative braking system also helps conserve and return energy to the battery. The result of this innovative technology is an estimated 65 MPGe combined city/highway. This translates to a total range of over 400 miles from full charge, including 30 miles of pure electric range.
The CT6 Hybrid rides on a rear-wheel drive platform, sending power to the wheels through an electric variable transmission. Another highlight of the sedan is the addition of standard luxuries like a rear camera mirror, a rear-seat entertainment system and a night-vision camera system, features which are only offered on top-tier trims of the gas-powered CT6.
