Cadillac CT4 and CT6 EV.

While the good old CT5 sedan was the best-selling Cadillac globally last year, the Escalade was still much more popular in the US.

Cadillac is currently hard at work on 2 all-new EV sedans based on an updated version of the Ultium platform. But none of these would be a direct replacement for the popular CT5. A smaller compact sedan is planned, which could be about the size of a CT4, and a larger one the size of a CT6. Although the smallest model might be a bit smaller than the current CT5, it could actually be roomier since you know… EV.

The sad part is that these 2 new models are probably mostly for the Chinese market since sedans are still pretty popular over there. Cadillac even has a 2nd generation CT6 on sale in China.

I personally think that, of course, they should sell these sedans in North America. Obviously there is a market for a luxury EV with a sedan body. While the Mercedes EQE and EQS aren’t very popular, that’s mostly because they are not very attractive, and don’t look that expensive either. Even the Lucid Air sold a bit more units last year than the Mercedes EQS. I am sure a company like Cadillac can do better with the right design. Tesla still sold over 16,000 units of the 12-year-old Model S last year! Or about 2 1/2 times the EQS.

Let’s hope at least one of these is for us…

  1. You might as well jump on the Pontiac revival bandwagon and render the CT4 EV that way. Competing with Model 3 is too down market for Cadillac anyway.
