Cadillac has officially priced and began production of its CT6 Plug-in Hybrid in China. The launch market for the brand’s only plug-in model will have a starting price of RMB 558,800, or about $80,400 in U.S. dollars.
The CT6 Plug-in variant will be General Motors second vehicle to import to North America from China when it goes on sale in the U.S. in a few months. The Chinese and North American versions of the CT6 Plug-in are nearly identical in specifications and features.
All CT6 Plug-ins are powered by a combination of GM’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and two electric motors. The combined power output is a respectable 335 horsepower and 432 pound-feet of torque. Cadillac says the power will be good for the a zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) time of about 5.4 seconds.
Supplying power to the two electric motors is an 18.4-kWh lithium ion battery pack, which will provide about 80 km of electric range on the Chinese model. Overall range expands to 935 km when factoring in the gas option.
More premium Chinese customers can opt for a loaded up CT6 Plug-in Hybrid for a cool RMB 658,800, or about $94,000 USD.
