General Motors has revealed the Cadillac CT6 flagship will be offered with a plug-in hybrid powertrain

General Motors has revealed new information about the highly anticipated CT6 flagship.

During a briefing last week, executives confirmed the model will be a technological showcase and feature the Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system which can control the car's steering, braking and acceleration under certain conditions. In order to do this, the system uses radar, ultrasonic sensors, cameras and GPS data to determine the car's position and the location of other vehicles and obstacles.

The CT6 will also be equipped with a digital rearview mirror that provides a live video of what is behind the vehicle.

Executives were coy on powertrain details but confirmed there will be a plug-in hybrid variant. There's no word on specifics but it will reportedly enable the sedan to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than six seconds and travel up to 75 mph (120 km/h) in pure electric mode.
