The US Environmental Protection Agency just released its official fuel-economy figures for Cadillac’s all-new CT6 plug-in hybrid sedan, giving the hefty, full-size luxury car a rating of 26 miles-per-gallon on the combined test cycle. That figure results from a city rating of 23 mpg, and a highway rating of 29.
Those figures aren’t as swell as many would have hoped. After all, the Cadillac CT6 with just a turbocharged 2.0L Ecotec LTG is rated at 25 mpg combined, with 22 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway.
However, the EPA also rated the CT6 PHEV’s electric-only range, observing a 28-mile range in the city, and a 34-mile range on the highway, for a combined battery range of 31 miles. Since that’s more than enough range to cover most everyday commutes, it’s conceivable that owners will still see a sizable improvement with regard to fueling costs.
The EPA’s MPGe (Miles-Per-Gallon equivalent) rating for the 2017 Cadillac CT6 PHEV is 62.
The all-new Cadillac CT6 PHEV is built at General Motors’ Cadillac plant in Jinqiao, China, and began arriving at dealers last month. It starts at $76,090 US including destination, before government credits.
