The Cadillac CT6 plug-in hybrid has been officially launched in the Chinese market.

Two variants of the new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) offering will reportedly be available in the market — one selling for RMB 558,800 and one for RMB 658,800.

While the model hasn’t really been altered much for the Chinese market (from the US version), it’s probably worth providing a brief overview of the specs and features. Here they are, courtesy of the press release:

“Built on GM’s all-new intelligent rear-wheel electric drive platform, the CT6 Plug-In offers steady, robust real-time power through two high-performance electric motors integrated with the car’s electric drive system and a direct-injection 2.0L SIDI turbocharged engine.

“The engine generates 250 kW of power and 586 Nm of torque, along with 0–100 km/h acceleration of only 5.4 seconds. Its combined fuel consumption is as low as 1.7 L/100 km, which is the best in its segment.

“At the heart of the CT6 Plug-In is a lithium-ion battery pack comprising 192 cells. It has a large capacity of 18.4 kWh, which is up to 50% more than competitive models. With the support of GM’s world-leading Battery Management System (BMS) and liquid cooling technology, this provides 80 km of all-electric range and 935 km of combined range.”

That’s 80 kilometers of all-electric range as determined by the local testing authorities, it should be remembered, not by the US EPA (which seems to perform the most stringent testing anywhere in the world … as far as national authorities go).

The model is being backed in the Chinese market by an 8-year unlimited-mileage warranty that applies to the battery pack, the electric motors, and the electronic control system. The purchase of the Cadillac CT6 PHEV in the Chinese market comes with a free 220V charger + free installation.
