Cadillac has given Canada a taste of what’s to come with the local debut of the Escala concept. The Cadillac Escala was revealed to Canadian consumers at the 2017 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, where the brand put it on display to ensure the best is yet to come from the brand.
The evolved face of the Escala is said to be the inspiration for Cadillac design moving forward. The front and rear also give a fresh take on Cadillac’s signature vertical lighting style, something the brand has used in one way or another since 1948.
Despite the Escala’s lack of production intent, the concept car has been around the world to showcase what consumers can expect next from Cadillac. However, there was one vehicle debut that consumers will be able to buy shortly.
The 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In also made its local debut with 708 km of total driving range. The CT6 Plug-In features a 2.0-liter LTG turbocharged four-cylinder engine and two electric motors to produce a total of 335 hp and can scoot the sedan from 0-60 in 5.2 seconds. Like in the U.S., the CT6 Plug-In will be offered as a standalone model with unique packaging and trim level to bundle luxury and efficiency together.
That capability and luxury will set our friends to the north back $89,995 when the CT6 Plug-In goes on sale this spring.
