    2017 Cadillac CT6 PHEV To Begin At $76,090*


    • Plus. how far can the CT6 PHEV travel on electric power only?


    Despite being introduced a year ago at the Shanghai Auto Show, Cadillac has been somewhat quiet on the CT6 PHEV for the U.S. But today, Cadillac has been spilling out some new information on their new hybrid sedan.

    First, we know now when the CT6 PHEV will go on sale and for how much. The model will go on sale next spring with a base price of $76,090 - includes a $995 destination charge. Cadillac says the PHEV will be offered as its own unique package within the CT6 lineup and feature an equipment list similar to the Premium trim. 

    We have also learned how far the CT6 PHEV can travel on EV power alone - about 30 miles.

    The CT6 PHEV uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors to deliver a total output of 335 horsepower and 432 pound-feet of torque. That torque figure is higher than the 3.0L Twin-Turbo V6 (400 pound-feet).

    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, with a total driving range of more than 400 miles.

    Advanced plug-in hybrid technology enables the luxury sedan to reward drivers with 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, with 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.”

    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 with the fuel economy of conventional internal combustion vehicles in miles per U.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 with 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, with 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 U.S. at $75,095 plus a $995 destination freight charge before any applicable electric vehicle tax incentives. In the U.S. market, the CT6 Plug-In Hybrid will be offered as its own unique package within the CT6 product line, with 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.

    The specs are good, I think the price is a bit steep.  By making this the most expensive engine option, you can pretty much guarantee that it will be the least popular engine option.  I always thought they should price this on par with the turbo V6 which is about $68,000 to start.

    Sweet ride, I think for those in the wealthy level wanting to make a green statement, this car should do well. I also wonder if the pricing is due to Cadillac wanting to keep this car more focused in China? 

    After all, if the BOLT does as well as I suspect it will, I could see Cadillac having a full blown EV sedan to compete against Tesla in a year or two.

    Takes a while to get an electric car built from scratch basically.  The Bolt isn't going to compete with Tesla.  A Cadillac sedan Tesla fighter would have to have performance above the CTS-V, that isn't something they would just draw up in a year or two.  Probably more like a 4 year plan.

    5.2secs to 60 sounds a lot like what the overly expensive Effboy S-Class Hybrid gets for a sweet amount less. The Cadillac apparently will go further by about 15 miles over the S550e. Looking at the moron driving the Kraut-Car in the "rear-mirror-cam" as it continues to cruise on EV. Go Cadillac.. I love America.. and to those who love Germany, especially Mercedes.. they can go EFF-Boy themselves ^_^

    I love America.

    I love Cadillac.

    But in this territory of EV performance of speed and range solely on electric power at this price level, Id rather just skip the Standard of the Old World and go with the New Standard of this Modern World and go with the other American car maker named not by the founder of Detroit, but by the name of an inventor that discovered the rotating magnetic field which is the basis for the modern alternating current electricity supply system. TESLA is that car company name and the vehicle in question is the Model S. P60, P100. It dont matter....it trounces the CT6....

    Not in luxury you say?

    I say luxury is a state of mind...in 2016, luxury is not what it used to be either....is what Id tell you...

    The problem is that Tesla will loose their income from selling pollution credits when the administration changes. Cadillac is much better positioned.

    Same 0-60 as the S550e, similar MPGe of 65 vs 63.  The S550e is the cheapest and slowest S-class though, the S550e is $20k more than the CT6 plug in because it is a class higher of car.  CT6 isn't really an S-class competitor, it is E-class prices.

    Because 0-60 times are what matters in the WHOLE of luxury. :rolleyes: My reason for pointing out the 5.2 secs was to show that this car is no slouch in acceleration.. nor is it a compromise in get from a to b. The Tesla P100D is faster surely.. but its range is literally infinitely less than the CT6 (or S550e) for that matter if for no other reason than simply because the infrastructure needed for QUICK recharging is not here yet. And when I say quick I mean 5.5 minutes like when I pull into an Exxon and fill-up after my battery depleted and gas tank drained. Not to mention the Tesla' 315 mile range is not the 400+ range of the CT6 or S-550e. 

     

    As for luxury STATE OF MIND.. I still say the luxury amenities of the Tesla brand are no more luxo than those of my Impala LTZ. And I might even say the Impala is a slightly above it. OH... I will give Tesla points for coming to my house when the car completely dies or burns up... Oh wait!!! Is that really a luxury. Hope it wasn't in the garage.

     

    And why are we even comparing the Tesla Model S to the CT6 Hybrid or S550e? Its smaller, about the size of my V, its an all E car, its only luxury because of the price and the idiot buyers Musk duped into buying  as such.. and its tired as shit to look at

    Yes.. Yes. The Benz is also. The S-Class.. Truly the only Benz I'd give that credit to at this point.. especially if its the COUPE

    Definitely. But I'd prefer that GM/Cadillac really stick to the Voltec way, increasing range of the EV portion to about 100 until the infrastructure of Charging stations is on par with that of the Gas stations.

    Keep telling yourself that if it makes U feel better. This car is the real deal. JDN and co undersold it as it does not have about 5% of the S-Class attributes, namely a V8. The fear that should be your German loving mind is that if this car.. the CT6 is only 95% of what the S-Class is.. WTF is the CT7 or 8 gonna be.

    That thought is so strong on the automotive porn meter I may have trouble today...thinking about that....what a distraction from work!

    Probably a bad thing as I may be working with a torch and doing some brazing....if I burn my damned fingers I am blaming you for the distraction, Sir!

    Competition is good, if nothing else Cadillac really bringing it will keep Benz on their toes and making even better S class cars.

    SMK is right about some of the attributes of Benz cars, but he looses all credibility for his blind partisanship.

    O and Cmicassa....went out to dinner with my wife....waiter had a Cadillac tattoo similar to yours on his forearm. Young guy, HUGE GM and Cadillac fan....

    I know it wasn't you but....your Ohio twin did a damned good job of keeping my glass full....!

    And yes, the Tesla is really only about as nice as the Impala.  Actually, the Impala is nicer than the Tesla in many ways.  Plus, Musk has the misfortune of not only a recent divorce but he will loose pollution credits with the new administration, which is the only thing keeping him afloat financially.

    GM is in an excellent position to build electric luxury cars, be they Hybrid or full electric, and turn one hell of a profit.

    Those ATP's you were telling Wings about are for real...and unlike the Asians Cadillac has some unique designs at the top of their lineup....and unlike the European luxury cars Cadillac hold up after they are out of warranty.

    Was reading on one of my other Forums about someone who bought a Porsche and had ten grand plus in differed maintenance when they bought it....you most likely would not have that with a Vette or a Cadillac....

    You mentioned 0-60 times....but failed to mention 315 mile range...

    Dude...that kind of range, you will NEVER be stranded looking for a charge station...

    Living in Montreal, that range takes me to Boston...on the outskirts of...without stopping..

    I went to Niagara Falls this summer with the family. With my TL. A heck of a shorter trip. I stopped 3 times going there and 3 times coming back...you know....for snacks and bathroom breaks...I surely found charging stations that I could have plugged my EV into...15 minutes there, half an hour here....

    Next!

    About luxury...

    EXACTLY....

    The Impala LTZ is good enough for me too!

    Honestly, I dont feel too good about dumping 100 thousand units of American or Canadian legal tenders on a depreciating asset...Id rather do so much more with said legal tenders...

    However, if getting off of oil COMPLETELY is my meal ticket, then I could forgo a little bit of the so called fine leathers of a Cadillac and drive something more modern in terms of powertrain. State of the Art stuff is also part of the luxury equation and a Tesla motor is as State of the Art as it gets...

    Besides, I got other material stuff in life that wraps me up in soft and cuddly expensive materials...

    Luxury is how you wanna perceive it and indulge in it...hence its a state of mind...

    Nice chatting with you none the less...

    Again.. I agree with all of this. U and I my friend think alike. BTW.. even tho it wasn't me at the restaurant if U ever hung with me U'd kno.. I always keep everyone's glass full.. full of Bourbon.. Woodford Reserve of Jameson Black :D

    Drink the best and drive the best. The meaning and purpose of life is to enjoy the passage of time....and what better way to enjoy the passage of time than a Jameson Black after a long cruise in a Cadillac?

    Im a Metaxa 7 star Brandy kinda guy myself. There are 12 star Metaxas and special reserves too. But hey...who are we kidding? That kinda nomenclature is just noise to make someone feel special...

    But you are right about cruisin' in a real Cadillac though. And I hope to God that a CT6 is a real Cadillac.

    Assuming Tesla survives not being able to sell pollution credits.  More like Cadillac taking over Tesla's market share.

    As long as FCA is around they will be able to sell pollution credits.

    FCA also scored emission credits from Toyota and Honda.

    In total FCA bought 8.2 million megagrams of them for 2014 ( 2015 tallies come out in a month or so ).

    Which will be an enormous loss of revenue for Tesla if the law changes.
