Khan, A., Grewe, T., Liu, J., Anwar, M. et al., "The GM RWD PHEV Propulsion System for the Cadillac CT6 Luxury Sedan," SAE Technical Paper 2016-01-1159, 2016, doi:10.4271/2016-01-1159.
This paper describes the capabilities of a new two-motor plug-in hybrid-electric propulsion system developed for rear wheel drive. The PHEV system comprises a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder direct-injected gasoline engine with the new hybrid transmission , a new traction power inverter module, a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack, and on-board battery charger and 12V power converter module. The capability and features of the system components are described, and component performance and vehicle data are reported. The resulting propulsion system provides an excellent combination of electric-only driving, acceleration, and fuel economy.
