The CT6 uses a lithium-ion battery pack that shares technology with the packs used for years in the Chevrolet Volt and the discontinued Cadillac ELR. It provides 31 miles of full-electric range before the gas engine kicks in.

This places this version of the CT6 at $15000 over the gas-only version.
