Cadillac will soon offer the highly anticipated CT6 PLUG-IN hybrid model with all-electric driving mode for most daily commutes. This model is powered by an 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack positioned between the rear seat and the trunk. It also utilizes a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine with spark-ignited direct injection and variable valve technology. For longevity the plug-in system uses Cadillac’s proven active thermal control system to maintain electric range over the battery system’s life with a combined total system power of 335 horsepower and 432 lb-ft of torque. This new Cadillac is rated by the EPA for a combined driving range of 440 miles, an all-electric range of 31 miles and a combined city/highway fuel economy rating of 62 MPGe.
The Cadillac CT6 PLUG-IN battery system can be charged with either a 120V or 240V charger and will charge in as little as 4.5 hours. It uses the unique iBooster and Electronic Stability Programs for hybrid electric vehicle regenerative braking and maximum energy recovery and improved fuel economy. These technologies allow the CT6 electric motors to act as generators to slow the vehicle and capture as much kinetic energy as possible.
New Cadillac CT6 PLUG-IN owners will enjoy a choice of three distinct operating modes: Normal, Sport and Hold. Normal driving mode provides a comfortable balance of performance and maximized EV range for everyday driving. When in Sport mode the driver can utilize more aggressive pedal mapping and a stiffer steering response for dynamics that simulate track performance. The Hold mode allows drivers to reserve the remaining battery charge by only drawing power from the engine. This mode is perfect for drivers who wish to use battery charge exclusively for highway driving.
“The first-ever CT6 is a technological showcase throughout, making it an ideal platform for Cadillac to offer its first plug-in,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “In the CT6, Cadillac presents a new formula for prestige luxury. The advanced Plug-In system is a key addition, providing a combination of exceptional fuel economy, crisp acceleration and strong electric-driving range.”
