While there are more potent and more prestigious plug-in hybrid execs out there, the CT6 appears to strike a good balance between all the things you’d expect from such a model.
At its heart is a twin-motor EVT system and a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol unit, which put out a combined total output of 335 HP (250 kW) and 432 lb-ft (586 Nm) of torque, for a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in 5.2 seconds.
According to Cadillac, its all-electric range is 30 miles (48 km), while at that mode top speed is capped at 78 mph (125 km/h).
As for what it’s like on the road, it would seem Kelley Blue Book’s Micah Muzio took to it quite well, enjoying the instant torque and luxurious amenities provided by what he labelled “the Cadillac of plug-in hybrids.”
The CT6 PHEV will set you back $76,090, taxes included. That gives it a roughly $3,000 advantage over the equivalent Lexus LS 500h, whereas the BMW 740e xDrive iPerformance is a $90,700 affair, while similar performance but a smaller EV range than the Caddy.
In the end, the Cadillac CT6 plug-in hybrid might is an excellent buy for those looking for a “green” executive saloon – and you can watch the whole review by clicking on the video right below.
