GM CEO: Cadillac To Take On Tesla, One Day–With Plug-In Hybrid Sedan, Perhaps?

It looks like the success of the Tesla Model S all-electric luxury sedan may be starting to get under GM’s skin.

CEO Dan Akerson told the Detroit News that General Motors will compete with Tesla Motors–“ultimately”–through its Cadillac luxury brand.

2014 Buick Encore
2014 BMW X6

But, Akerson said, he remained unconvinced that battery-electric vehicles were “the panacea that I think the American public wants.”

That may indicate that GM believes a plug-in hybrid version of its future large Cadillac LTS sedan will be its Tesla Model S competitor.
