Cadillac is offering up new details on the CT6 plug-in hybrid car at the Shanghai Auto show. The CT6 will be the top of the line offering from Cadillac and it promises twice the fuel economy of conventional powertrain offerings. The plug-in hybrid system still has a few tidbits that Cadillac isn’t ready to divulge just yet. One of the key facts that we don’t know is just how far it will travel on a full charge and how long the battery will last.
What we don’t know is that the total power output from the electric system and the gasoline engine in the car will be 335hp and 432 lb-ft of torque. The car uses a 2.0L turbo 4-cuylinder gas engine with direct-injection and variable valve technology. The car also has a pair of electric motors and an 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery.
The battery pack is placed between the rear seats and the trunk of the car. Caddy says that the car will be able to make most daily commutes on electricity alone. Fuel economy for the car is expected to be twice that of conventional engine version of the car.
