With a lot of news about Cadillac most likely leaving the livery business behind in the pursuit of a new brand image, this came across our desks. MGM has provided a video highlighting the introduction of its new compressed natural gas powered 2015 Cadillac XTS limousines, a first in the business they say.
Previously, MGM employed Town Car limos, but the time had come to replace the fleet with a new vehicle, and they decided to push the envelope and innovate. Chris Magee, Executive Director of Corporate Sustainability for MGM, says Cadillac were actually the ones who suggested the idea of a CNG powered limo. After much engineering, the powertrain was implemented.
Technical specifications are missing, but we do know the car still uses the 3.6-liter V6 engine to deliver its entourage to the grandest parties in Vegas. The limousines are able to drive about 200 miles on a single tank of CNG, with up to a 12 percent reduction in emissions from standard gasoline. Magee says MGM is proud to introduce the limo fleet, and sees it as a commitment to proper sustainability practices.
Have a look at an overview of the 2015 Cadillac XTS limos in the video down below.
