Cadillac Escalade hybrid debuts today ahead of LA Auto Show

Filed under: , , ,

That Cadillac will release a hybrid Escalade (thought the very thought makes my head hurt) is no secret. Spy photos surfaced back in June, and we know this monstrosity will be at the L.A. Auto Show next week. HybridCars says journalists at the South Florida International Auto Show got a sneak preview of the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid today. Buyers can get their own Escalade with a two-mode hybrid system sometime next summer. Price and most details (including official pictures) have yet to be revealed, but HybridCars says the MPG will be increased from 12 city/18 highway in the non-hybrid version to an expected 18 city/22 highway. HybridCars also has a nice discussion about the value of adding a green sheen to the luxury of the Caddilac Escalade image, and notes that GM is using "Intelligent Indulgence" for the slogan. Talk about making my head hurt.
