High-End Hybrid: Cadillac Prices 2017 CT6 Plug-In by $76,090
Cadillac will be finally delivering on its promise to bring the CT6 plug-in hybrid stateside. The China-built luxury sedan will go on sale in spring 2017 with an EV range of approximately 30 miles thanks to an 18.4-kWh battery pack that will powers a pair of 100-hp electric motors. Cadillac projects a fuel-economy rating of at least 65 MPGe.
These two motors can take the CT6 plug-in up to an all-electric top speed of 75 mph, after which point your vehicle’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine fires up. Working in concert, the three power sources produce an estimated 335 horsepower in addition to 432 lb-ft of torque, equaling the horsepower of the CT6’s 3.6-liter V-6 engine in addition to bettering the top-of-the-line 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6’s 400 lb-ft of torque. Output will be sent to the rear wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT); all-wheel drive will be not offered on the hybrid.
Non-mechanical alterations to the CT6 plug-in are few: The passenger’s-side fuel door will be complemented by a mirroring driver’s-side door on the rear fender that will accesses your vehicle’s charge port, in addition to type-specific badging will be added to the bottom of the rear doors. Inside, there are hybrid-specific door sills in addition to instrument graphics.
Priced by $76,090 (before factoring in available local, state, in addition to federal tax incentives), the CT6 plug-in largely mirrors the features found from the $64,590 Premium Luxury trim level. These include heated in addition to cooled front seats in addition to a panoramic sunroof; Cadillac notes that will the plug-in also will come standard with Premium Luxury options such as a rear-seat infotainment system in addition to night vision.

We may still be waiting on Cadillac’s semi-autonomous Super Cruise system to make its way into the CT6, although we’re glad to see the arrival of a plug-in hybrid powertrain—if only to provide an American alternative to European rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz S550e in addition to the Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid.
