2010 Cadillac XTS Platinum Concept. The Cadillac name bears an image of luxury as much as it does with efficiency. This is why the XTS Platinum Concept has been expertly designed to meet all the standards and exceed expectations. The interior of the car is emanating with the sense of luxury. The seats are very comfortable and have been made with fine leather. It has also used integrated electronic and communication systems for better connectivity and efficiency. It has been featured to have the incorporation of an entertainment system as well as that of a proficient information and navigation system.
Since the electric drive capacity of the two-mode system is not sized to propel the vehicle electrically at all speeds, the system allows pure electric drive only at speeds only below 40 mph. Under moderate to heavy acceleration or at higher speeds, it is also capable of providing increased electric power blending as long as the lithium battery has not been depleted of its plug-in charge. Based on the size of the battery from the VUE, the XTS should be able to go about 20 miles with this enhanced hybrid capability before reverting back to standard hybrid performance. During that period, the PHEV should roughly double the , mileage of a conventional non-hybrid model with that improvement dropping to about 50 percent after the plug-in charge is depleted.
The net combined output of the V6 and hybrid system is listed at 350 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Thanks to the instant torque of the electric drive, that pulling power should also be more available at low speeds where it would be most appreciated in a vehicle of this size.
