High-Performance Cadillac CT6-V Won’t Be Sold In Europe

Cadillac says it has no intention of selling the high-performance CT6-V in Europe.

Deliveries of the range-topping CT6 variant commenced last week according to Cadillac Society after a delay regarding emissions. Now that deliveries have kicked off in the United States, the same publication reached out to head of public relations at Cadillac Europe, Rene Kreis, to see if European shoppers can expect to find the CT6-V at dealerships in the future.

“We currently have no plans to import the CT6-V to Europe,” responded.

Lesser Cadillac CT6 models are sold throughout North America, China, Europe, Korea, Japan, and the Middle East. With confirmation that China also won’t be offered the CT6-V, it seems unlikely that other markets such as Mexico and the Middle East will either. After all, China is Cadillac’s biggest market and if the CT6-V were to be sold anywhere other than the U.S. and Canada, you’d expect it to be there.

The Cadillac CT6-V has been a long time coming. It was first announced in March 2018 as the CT6-V Sport and in September last year, was renamed to the CT6-V. It premiered the car manufacturer’s 4.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine dubbed Blackwing that is good for 550 hp and 640 lb-ft (867 Nm) of torque.

Cadillac initially capped pre-ordering for the car to 275 units and on the back of demand for the model, announced that pricing would jump by $4000 to $92,790. Earlier this year, it was revealed that issues with emissions compliance were the reason why deliveries of the Cadillac were delayed although Cadillac has kept specifics close to its chest.

    Do Chinese buyers really care about performance though?

    • Paulbe

      The Chinese really prefer perceptions of prestige over performance, hence the proliferation of long wheelbase variants of regular models.

  • are you telling me that people wouldn’t buy this over – I don’t know – Audi RS6, BMW M5 or E63 AMG? Hmm strange… To be fair…Tesla Model S P100d is still the king.

      kings of cheap materials.

  • Too bad we won’t have a car from a brand no one buys here… Oh Noooooo.

  • Merc1

    Of course it won’t be, why is this news? Another half-baked, now we have it right, but let cancel it car from GM. Oh wait it’s not cancelled, but we don’t know where we will build it at.

  • I’m actually surprised Caddy is selling anything in europe…

    i thought they pulled out?

  • Astonman

    I really like the looks of the CT-6. It’s the interior I don’t really care for. For 90 large, it’s interior – the dashboard is lacking the look and feel of other cars out there.
