We are now starting to get the lo down on everything to expect from the 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid. Before now, the most popular and factual stories about it were that it was going to be produced in China at GM's shared (with SAIC) plant in Shanghai.
What we know:
- The vehicle will be powered by GM's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder coupled with two electric motors.
- The lithium-ion battery pack will share the Chevy Volt's 18.4 kilowatt-hour capacity
- Full system horsepower is 449HP
- 0-60 is expected to be 5.4 seconds.
- Cadillac is also claiming an electric-only range of 37 miles.
We also know that the CT6 won’t use the same battery-pack layout as the Volt. Like the Chevy BOLT, the battery will be integrated into the floor, which according to Cadillac, will help increase vehicle stiffnes, but like the VOLT, the CT6 will use a two-motor drive system, adding one more planetary gearset and two more clutches.
The Engine will be built in MAryland along side that of the Chevy Spark EV in White Marsh's Allison PLant. Expect the luxury PHEV to go on sale late this year. as a 2017 model.
