will release a hybrid Escalade
(thought the very thought makes my head hurt) is no secret. Spy photos surfaced back in June
, and we know this monstrosity will be at the L.A. Auto Show
next week. HybridCars says journalists at the South Florida International Auto Show got a sneak preview
of the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid
today. Buyers can get their own Escalade with a two-mode hybrid
system sometime next summer. Price and most details (including official pictures) have yet to be revealed, but HybridCars says the MPG will be increased from 12 city/18 highway in the non-hybrid version to an expected 18 city/22 highway. HybridCars also has a nice discussion about the value of adding a green sheen to the luxury of the Caddilac Escalade image, and notes that GM
is using "Intelligent Indulgence" for the slogan. Talk about making my head hurt.
