The arrival of the first-ever CT6 PLUG-IN signals the next chapter in Cadillac’s commitment to innovative automotive goals. Fitted with a high-output 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder engine, a Lithium-ion battery and an Electric Variable Transmission (EVT), it combines responsive performance, precision engineering and one of the world’s most advanced hybrid technologies to change the expectations of what a hybrid can be.
The first-ever CT6 PLUG-IN pairs a conventional high-output 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder engine, a Lithium-ion battery and a two-motor Electric Variable Transmission (EVT) system. The Lithium-ion battery can be fully charged directly with a plug-in unit, as well as partially charged through automatic regenerative braking that recaptures energy during braking and coasting. Together you have the ultimate luxury-technology vehicle with an EPA estimated total range of 440 miles3 with a full charge and a full tank of gas, including an EPA estimated 31 miles2 of electric range.
Built to provide greater control, handling and stability, the core of the CT6’s PLUG-IN’s agile performance lies in its advanced, lightweight vehicle architecture. Innovative fusion technologies combine 13 high-pressure aluminum castings and high-strength steel into a single frame for quieter acoustics. Meanwhile, increased rigidity provides superb and precise handling on the road.
Replenish your battery every drive. The Cadillac CT6 PLUG-IN features automatic regenerative braking, which converts some of the energy from braking and coasting into electrical energy stored in the high voltage battery for later use. Regen on Demand allows the driver to increase the level of deceleration provided through regenerative braking by using the tap shift controls on the back of the steering wheel. Temporary or permanent Regen on Demand can be used during sporty driving and when descending hills to slow the vehicle and maximize efficiency.
Information at a glance. The full-color Head Up Display projects driving and entertainment updates onto the windshield so you can stay informed without taking your eyes off the road. It is also reconfigurable, so you can customize it to display the information that is most relevant to you.
Cut the cords and keep charging. With conveniently located Wireless Charging4 and phone charging case, you can power your compatible phone anytime the vehicle is running.
The collection of Driver Awareness features* includes a variety of safety and security technologies to help assist your drive. Forward Collision Alert monitors traffic ahead, alerting you if a potential collision is imminent, while Following Distance Indicator shows the following time to the vehicle ahead (in seconds) in the Driver Information Center (DIC). Using a front camera to sense lane boundaries, Lane Keep Assist gently turns the steering wheel if the system anticipates the vehicle is leaving the lane unintentionally without using your turn signal. Side Blind Zone Alert displays a warning symbol in the outside rearview mirrors when a vehicle is detected in the side blind zone area or rapidly approaching that area.
Technology that anticipates. The Driver Assistance features* use a number of advanced technologies to help lessen impact during a collision, or avoid it altogether. It includes Adaptive Cruise Control, which automatically accelerates and brakes the vehicle to moderate levels to maintain a driver-selected following gap to the vehicle ahead. Also included is Forward and Reverse Automatic Braking which can sense front or rear collisions and engage the brakes, helping to give you more reaction time.
*Available at Extra Cost.
Illuminate the road ahead. The striking vertical light systems frame the hood with an innovative light unit that includes Indirect Fire LED-powered multifunctional headlamps, daytime running lights and turn signals in one single, compact system.
A well-lit welcome. When you approach the CT6 PLUG-IN after dark, a signal from the passive entry key fob activates lights in the headlamps, outside mirrors and light accents on the door handles. This soft glow improves visibility around the vehicle as you approach.
Charge with ease – on the go or at home. Charging your CT6 PLUG-IN is simple: your vehicle is equipped with a portable 120-volt charging cord that can be connected to a power source. And you can easily charge at home with the available 240-volt home charging system. To learn more about home charging, contact your local Cadillac dealership.
Depending on the capabilities of your charging station, recharging a fully depleted battery can take as little as 4.5 hours.*
Always know your charging status. When charging, you can quickly assess your charging status using the Charging Status Indicator near the windshield. A series of flashing or solid lights in either green or yellow will alert you whether your battery is charging, is not fully charged, or is completely charged.
*Charge time may vary with temperature.
An elevated experience. Each of the three available interior combinations have been carefully curated to create a holistic look and an indulgent feel. Custom stained exotic woods are matched with details like exclusive custom woven carbon fiber elements and Galvano chrome accents, creating a rich, yet understated environment. And for an added touch of refined craftsmanship, select interior features are hand cut and sewn.
Long-lasting comfort. The refined seating inside the CT6 PLUG-IN is crafted from premium materials and has unique seat contours that provide cushioning and support. With heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear outboard seats and generous rear legroom, passengers can relax for hours on end.
Envelop yourself in sound. Enjoy a complete audio experience with the Bose® Sound System. With 10 speakers throughout the cabin, it plays your favorite music with crystal clarity and features Active Noise Cancellation technology for a richer listening experience.
Experience fewer surprises after the sun sets. The Night Vision system uses thermal technology to alert you to people and large animals ahead of you in the dark, making you aware of potential hazards before it is too late.*
An extra set of eyes on the road. Front Pedestrian Braking technology uses a camera to scan the road ahead of the vehicle for pedestrians. If one is detected, a series of indicators and alerts is activated and if necessary, the vehicle can auto brake to avoid collisions.
See all around you. Providing additional coverage automatically when in Reverse or on demand in Drive, Surround Vision* provides a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle and the areas immediately around it. This view, projected on the Cadillac user experience7 screen, helps reduce blind spots and increase awareness, and assists when maneuvering in and out of tight spots. And while you’re driving, the Surround Vision Recorder can be set to record front and back views of your drive.
