Cadillac CT6 plug-in hybrid to be imported from China

With the Buick Envision locked in, GM is planning to import a second vehicle from China to the US: the Cadillac CT6 plug-in hybrid.

According to Bloomberg, GM will source the Cadillac CT6 plug-in hybrid exclusively from one of its plants in China. The CT6 will only be produced in two countries: the US and China.

With China’s tax policy favoring plug-in hybrid cars, GM expects that sales there of the PHEV model will exceed those in the US.

Although the Cadillac SRX is imported from the US to China, it will likely be an anomaly in the long run as China imposes heavy taxes on fully imported vehicles. GM may look to import more cars from China, as Chinese and American tastes are more closely aligned than those of, say, America and Europe.
