Cadillac does not plan to electrify the CT4 and CT5 sedans

U.S. brand officials have announced that the CT4 and CT5 sedans will not receive all-electric powertrains. “At the moment, we are focused on creating other electric vehicles,” Cadillac emphasized.

Cadillac will soon have electric cars in its lineup – the Lyriq crossover and Celestiq sedan will be presented soon. But the existing four-door models CT4 and CT5 will not receive electric motors – this is what foreign publications say that refer to their trusted sources in the American brand. It is also reported that the two sedans will not be equipped with hybrid power plants.

 Sources do not go into the details of such a decision, but some possible reasons immediately come to mind. In particular, the fact that the popularity of sedans is now quite low – everyone wants crossovers and SUVs.

General Motors, which includes Cadillac, recently announced plans to delay the debut of several models due to the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the new versions of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Serra pickups, the concern will postpone the launch of the high-performance sedans CT4-V and CT5-V for at least six months. The launch of the Lyriq crossover will be later than originally planned.

 It is already known that the future for Cadillac is purely electric. For example, the brand will soon be introducing an Escalade-sized electric crossover that will use the same platform as the GMC Hummer electric pickup and will use GM’s Ultium batteries. The cruising range will be approximately 644 km, and the total power can be up to 1000 horsepower.
