GM’s first dual mode hybrid cars

GM to use its new electric motors in a couple of dual mode hybrid Cadillac cars?The Cadillac Escalade hybrid

A few weeks ago GM announced development plans for a new line of smaller, more efficient electric motors that will first be used in GM’s dual mode hybrids. Today, all of GM’s dual mode hybrids are large trucks and SUVs, however, thanks to this reduction in motor size, GM will be able to add its dual mode hybrid technology to smaller vehicles, including cars.

According to one report, two of the first cars to receive the dual mode hybrid powertrain will the Cadillac ATS and the Cadillac CTS.

Unfortunately, however, it does not appear that these new electric motors will result in any full hybrids the size of a Toyota Prius. Instead, it seems GM will use its mild hybrid powertrain for any Prius-sized hybrid cars.
