New Cadillac hybrid coming to Edmonton, AB
Don Wheaton shoppers looking for the next generation of Cadillac luxury sedans will want to take a close look at the 2016 Cadillac CT6, slated to arrive to during the first quarter of this year. Through the use of advanced body structures, new materials and industry-leading construction methods, Cadillac engineers have built a car with dimensions rivaling the BMW 7-Series but with the performance and efficiency of the nimble Cadillac CTS. The luxury automaker is doubling-down on its investment with the all new sedan by introducing the 2016 CT6 Plug-In to potential buyers. Estimates Cadillac testing protocol reveal that the CT6 Plug-In will be the most fuel-efficient luxury sedan on the market.
“The first-ever CT6 is a technological showcase, making it an ideal platform for Cadillac to offer its first plug-in hybrid,” 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 exceptional efficiency as well as the strong acceleration and responsiveness of a true driver’s car.”
Like other ground breaking hybrid vehicles from General Motors, the brand new Cadillac CT6 Plug-In is designed from the ground up to only use stored electricity for most daily commuting needs. When more power is needed for quick acceleration or highway driving, the electrical system and turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine will work together to produce 335 horsepower and 432 pound-feet of torque. Current Cadillac estimates place a zero-to-96 km/h time of a little more than five seconds.
What sets the CT6 Plug-In apart from other hybrids?
Overall, it’s the incredible performance of the 2016 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In that separates it from the pack. Company engineers figure that the new Cadillac hybrid sedan will be able to achieve electric equivalent fuel-consumption scores of around 3.6 L/100 km. Additionally, when drivers are using only the stored electrical power, they will be able to travel up to 30 miles at a top speed of 75 miles per hour. The batteries can be charged using a 120- or 240-volt unit, taking about five hours to completely recharge the unit.
Customers that choose to take home the new CT6 Plug-In will have three driving modes available, Normal, Sport and Hold. Using the Normal mode provides a balance of comfort, performance and overall efficiency. Sport mode will allow more torque to be applied to the wheels off-the-line as well as stiffen the steering feel. The Hold mode will conserve battery power by only using the gasoline-powered engine.
