Cadillac will be taking its newly-revealed CT6 to the Shanghai Motor Show, which will kick off in a little less than a week’s time. If some pointed words from GM North American President Mark Reuss are to be believed, the CT6 may very well be arriving with a new wrinkle—namely, a hybrid powertrain.

Reuss, when asked by the folks at Autoblog about the feasibility of a CT6 hybrid, responded by saying, “The Shanghai show is where you should look for all of it. So stay tuned.”

A Cadillac spokesman then told Autoblog that Cadillac “will add variants” to the CT6 line, but declined to specify.

In a separate interview during the New York Auto Show, Reuss said that the folks at Cadillac have had conversations pertaining to making a high-powered V-Series variant of the CT6, noting that the innovative architecture upon which the luxury sedan is built is particularly accommodating for adaptation to new technologies and powertrains.

General Motors recently revealed its newest hybrid model—a variant of the all-new Malibu—in New York. It is possible that a hybrid version of the CT6 would incorporate much of the same technology as the Malibu Hybrid, which itself borrows components from the all-new 2016 Volt.
