But in no way will it lack performance.
Cadillac is beginning to reveal additional details about its upcoming flagship. The official name (CT6) was announced a few days ago. And now we’ve learned another significant fact: it’s going to be a plug-in hybrid. Speaking to a group of investors, GM executive vice president Mark Reuss confirmed that the CT6 will utilize the automaker’s new and advanced plug-in hybrid technology. But don’t think for a moment that just because the CT6 is a hybrid it’ll have lackluster performance.
0-60 mph, according to Reuss, will happen in less than six seconds and a top speed of 75 mph will be possible in pure electric mode. And despite having an additional eight inches of length, the CT6 will weigh nearly 53 lbs. less than the CTS. The CT6’s body won’t be all aluminum but Reuss stated it’ll still be state-of-the-art. For example, the rearview mirror will integrate a rear-backup view to allow the driver to "see through" headrests and other obstacles. We’ll hopefully have more details about this new flagship in the near future.
