With the 2015 New York Auto Show opening in just a few days, Autocar reveals that Cadillac will put on display its all-new CT6.

The CT6 is considered to be Cadillac's "technological masterpiece" and will become the flagship of the brand.

We don't expect to see the plug-in version of this car in New York, however if it doesn't show in America this week, the rumour du jour is that it will still make its debut at a major auto show in China shortly.  Currently, China is responsible for all the growth of the Cadillac brand, improving 47% last year to 73,500 units; for America 170,750 Cadillacs were moved last year - off 6.5%.

Although we have to note Cadillac's spotty history in following through on revealing their plug-ins in a timely fashion; the 2016 Cadillac ELR skipped its planned debut in November of 2014, then again last month in Geneva.

Per Autocar:

"In an interview with Jalopnik, de Nysschen confirmed that the CT6 would be sold with a 420bhp V6 engine, a plug-in hybrid variant and a twin-turbo V8. Although no power output has been revealed, the V8 would most likely take centre stage in Cadillac’s V-badged range of performance models, which are designed to rival equivalent cars from Mercedes-AMG, BMW M division and Audi's Quattro GmbH."

In regards to the CT6 plug-in version itself (more details), we know that GM plans on introducing it at some point in 2015, and that it will be equipped with a turbo 6 cylinder engine.  GM's Mark Ruess, Executive VP of Global Product Development, has said that the CT6 plug-in will get about 70 MPGe - which leads us to believe it will have an all-electric range of about 20-25 miles.

We expect more news to come when the reveal occurs in New York.
