Cadillac confirms CT8/CT9 flagship, ELR successor
In an interview with Reuters, de Nysschen says his company has "just signed off on" a new flagship tipped to be called CT8 or CT9. It will compete with the long-wheelbase versions of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7 Series, and should come to market by the end of this decade.
Among other news, the South African executive said a followup to the ELR plug-in hybrid is in development, though it may not be a two-door coupe like the current car. That's not necessarily a bad thing, since the ELR has garnered nothing but slow sales and poor reviews since its launch.
The Reuters interview also touches on some topics that we've heard about before, including the potential of a plug-in hybrid variant of the forthcoming CT6, and new crossovers to slot above and below the SRX in the brand's model line.
