The deliveries of the Cadillac CT6 Plug-In have already started in US. This Chinese built model will be the first hybrid Cadillac for US customers after the discontinuation of ELR. Chinese government imposes high taxes on imported cars, and every car maker tries builds them there. This is a same reason why Cadillac CT6 Plug-In was built in China to avoid paying high tax. Even though CT6 Plug-In is built in China it can export to other countries such as US and other markets. One such model to face the brunt of high tax was Cadillac SRX Crossover.
Cadillac expects CT6 Plug-In to sell like hot cake in the Chinese market. The aesthetic of the Cadillac CT6 Plug-In is quite similar to other standard models. Cadillac CT6 Plug-In is powered with 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine. The engine is coupled with electric variable transmission with two electric models. The hardware enables it to get an output of 335 horsepower and 432 lb-ft of torque. The 18.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack gives the emission free range of 50 miles which is not bad. It will be the second GM model to be imported from China to US after Buick Envision.
Cadillac CT6 Plug-In will have a starting price of $75,095 for US market. An extra federal and tax credit for electric vehicle will be applied too. Gas powered CT6 is currently being produced at Hamtrack Assembly Plant in Detroit and also in China. Nonetheless, Cadillac will only manufacture hybrid at China plant only. It needs to be seen how US customers are going to take this news, but the price tag makes it quite competitive.
