New spy photos once again show Cadillac’s first all-new product in years testing ahead of its debut next year. And, also again, we see it features a port for a plug, indicating this is a plug-in hybrid variant.
Cadillac has previously stated the Cadillac XT4 will arrive with a new series of powerful and efficient engines, and a plug-in hybrid is clearly part of the portfolio. It’s expected the crossover will ride on General Motors’ E2 platform, which supports a range of four-cylinder engines and various hybrid tech.
As for the photos, it once again seems the crossover will take design inspiration from the Escala concept. Cadillac’s chief, Johan de Nysschen, most recently said the car will be “curvaceous” and “sculpted” and ditch some of the more angular design traits found with current Cadillacs. The camouflage may be distorting the view, but it still looks like Cadillac may employ Escalade-like taillights at the rear.
The Cadillac XT4 will kick off the brand’s onslaught of new product coming in the next two years. Following the XT4 crossover, a new Cadillac vehicle will launch every six months.
