Cadillac withdraws CT6 Plug-in Hybrid in North America

The Cadillac CT6 Plug-in Hybrid was the only electrified car from the manufacturer here, in Canada, and we are now learning that this luxury sedan will be axed from the North American catalog. That’s at least what the automaker confirmed to Car & Driver magazine earlier this month.

The Cadillac CT6 Plug-in Hybrid was assembled in China and imported to North America. Driven by a 2.0-liter 4-cyl engine coupled with two electric motors, it develops 335 horses in addition to being able to cover about 48 kilometers in electric mode.

Cadillac was already slow to offer “green” vehicles in its catalog. Rivals like Volvo, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz already have a good head start on the American brand, and some of them even have full-EVs almost ready hit the market.

We can speculate on several factors that led to this decision: the high price of the CT6 Plug-in Hybrid, low sales volume, trade relations with China … anyway, we hope that Cadillac will take over and introduce hybrid and electric vehicles to contribute to General Motors promise to market 20 electrified vehicles by 2023.
