The CT6 Plug-In Hybrid Axed for 2019 model year

It seems that GM can’t catch a break when it comes to selling their EV And PHEV vehicles. The Cadillac ELR, a stunning little coupe based off of the Chevrolet Volt, was already discontinued back in February as GM could only sell 2,334 units in both 2014 and 2015 combined – regardless of manufacturer incentives such as free charging station.

Now the Cadillac CT6 seems to be up next as the automaker plans on discontinuing the plug-in hybrid in 2019 in North America. At $80,000 USD, the CT6 was priced in a challenging market segment with competitors such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and of course Tesla.

Perhaps it was the slow sales that prompted the move. Or maybe the fact it is manufactured not in the USA, but in China where the CT6 is produced and will still be available, turned away American buyers looking to buy a “made in America” PHEV.
