All Electric Cadillac CT6? Or just slow on the draw (CT6 PHEV)

“You have to integrate the whole car. We feel really good about that,” said Reuss, who noted GM will soon introduce a plug-in electric vehicle that can run on pure electric power that is based on the Cadillac CT6 and a Buick extended range electric vehicle similar to the Chevrolet Volt.

Note that he says pure electric power and implies it's not like a Volt.

The way it's worded could be taken 2 ways, but this interview is post CT6 PHEV release.

Solely because he said "PLUG-IN" and not "CT6 EV" I'd take a Vegas bet it means the existing CT6...If we dive deeper, according to insideevs, the CT6 PHEV was first sold last month and sold a grand total of six so they could still be trickling into dealerships and so while this was after the CT6 PHEV was released, it isn't yet fully rolled out...Even deeper, they put the battery in the trunk, you'd imagine if they were wanting a larger battery to go in the floor for a BEV version the PHEV would also have had its battery installed in the floor...
I can say for a fact that the CT6 PHEV is not 'based' on a CT6, it is one. :D

But I'm now certain either the reporter or GM staffer was confused.
Fair point, I'd still keep my Vegas

Tons of little goodies in there...Focusing on reducing mass; Qinsp, you're a racer, I still can't understand why unsprung weight isn't a huge consideration...Very lightweight, strong and affordable wheels and two piece aluminum hat rotors (Vette has them) haven't found a way to OEM...Seems both are far easier to produce and cheaper than an aluminum body...
It doesn't matter, I think I still want one. Unfortunately the damn car is sold in Arkansas and not Illinois.
And not just any cities in Arkansas, just the ones that don't exist...Phoenix Arkansas and Tucson Arkansas! How "Phoenix Arkansas" made it way through and why it still hasn't been corrected is beyond me...
Phoenix Township, AR

There is a Phoenix in Arkansas, but the availability list should have said Arizona in the left column.

So sorry LL, the closest dealership with plugins will be in the Gainesville/Atlanta Georgia area.
The name does include Township, so it's debatable...There really is a "Miami" Oklahoma, spelt the same yet is pronounced "'My-am-ah" for whatever reason...
