GM plans to offer at least three hybrid drivetrains on as many as a dozen different models within the next two to three years. The most expensive of these is the new Two Mode hybrid transmission, which combines two electric motors with an internal combustion engine and costs more than $10,000 to build.
Nearly all Cadillac models could feature hybrid options revealed GM product chief Bob Lutz in a recent interview with Automotive News, but added that no plans have been confirmed. Fortunately, hybrid technology won’t be limited to premium models. GM took the wraps off its new Chevrolet Malibu hybrid this weekend but has said the car will only have a 2mpg advantage over the standard version.
