In the past, luxury cars like Cadillac were synonymous with poor fuel economy. However, with the advances in technology, they have smaller motors with enough horsepower and still have all of the luxuries you come to expect from a luxury model. However, you can really have the best of both worlds when Cadillac releases the new CT6 to dealerships like SouthTowne Motors.

Borrowed Volt Technology

The new Cadillac CT6 is a full-size sedan and is a plug-in hybrid. The new model was announced at the Shanghai motor show. The new model will make 335 horsepower and 432 pound-feet of torque while doubling the fuel economy of the conventional engine.

The CT6 features an 18.4kWh lithium-ion battery pack behind the rear seat and in front of the trunk. The battery features 192 pouch cells – the same chemistry you’ll find in the new battery that comes with the Chevrolet Volt. You can charge this battery pack at a 120-volt or a 240-volt outlet.

A new rear-wheel electric variable transmission (EVT) will back up the engine, giving the CT6 fast and smooth takeoffs. The EVT system uses two motors and three planetary gears. The gas engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a turbocharger.

The CT6 features three driving modes: normal, sport and hold. Use normal for every day driving; use sport for more aggressive medal mapping and use hold to reserve battery use.

The CT6 will be available at the end of 2015. Cadillac has not yet released the range of the electric portion, nor has it released pricing yet.
