"Cadillac remains committed to electrified systems for our vehicles," said a Cadillac representative, in a statement to Roadshow. "Although production of the CT6 Plug-In for North America is discontinuing for the 2019 model year, alternative fuel vehicles remain a part of our future product portfolio as we move deeper into our 10-year plan."
