According to a recent report, Cadillac is developing an SRX-based plug-in hybrid.

Details are limited, but Automotive News says the crossover will use Volt technology and draw on experience learned from previous extended-range vehicles (aka the defunct Saturn Vue and stillborn Buick compact crossover).

As we have previously reported, the Vue-ick was set to use a Two-Mode hybrid system that featured a 257 hp (192 kW / 261 PS) 3.6-liter V6 and an 8 kWh lithium-ion battery. This would have enabled the crossover to travel up to 10 miles (16 km) on electricity alone and "double the fuel economy of comparably-sized SUVs on short trips."

No word on when the Cadillac will be launched, but expect it to hit the market sometime in the next few years.
