We've been hearing about the Cadillac CT6 for years but it appears the company has just approved an even more luxurious flagship sedan.

According to Reuters, Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen has confirmed a new range-topping model will be launched by 2020 and go head-to-head with long-wheelbase versions of the Audi A8, BMW 7-Series and Mercedes S-Class. Little is known about the model but de Nysschen hinted it could be called either the CT8 or CT9.

Besides talking about the new flagship, de Nysschen said the company is considering a pure electric vehicle. He also reiterated the company is working on an ELR successor but it might not be a two door coupe.

Sources have also told the publication that the company's Audi A3 / Mercedes CLA competitor could go into production in 2018 and be based on the Chevrolet Cruze. That model's platform is also rumored to underpin the company's entry-level crossover which is slated to arrive 2017.
