With an EPA-rated 20 city miles per gallon, the 2011 Escalade Hybrid’s fuel economy boasts a 33 percent improvement over the non-hybrid model.
And while the fuel economy has been drastically improved, the Hybrid doesn’t sacrifice the Escalade’s standard comfort and convenience features, making it the perfect blend for driver’s looking to save on gas, without sacrificing style.
The 2011 Escalade Hybrid uses a patented two-mode hybrid system, with an advanced, electrically variable transmission and a 300-volt nickel-metal hydride Energy Storage System. This system pairs with the standard 6.0L V-8 Gen IV gasoline engine with Active Fuel Management and late-intake valve closing technology.
The hybrid system generates the electrical power used to propel the 2011 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid. When the driver applies the brakes, or when the engine is coasting, the electric motors within the hybrid system create electricity that is stored in the battery. This stored energy moves the vehicle, saving on fuel economy.
With the 300-volt nickel-metal hydride Energy Storage System, the stored energy powers the vehicle. Despite its power, this addition does not interfere; it sits under the second-row seat, taking up virtually no additional space.

This special edition also features segment-first applications of Magnetic Ride Control technology, which gives the vehicle more precise body motion control.
Full-functioning LED headlamps are also included, and emulate the characteristics of natural daylight much more closely than traditional auto lighting. Adding to the increased efficiency and decreased impact of the 2011 Escalade Hybrid, these LEDs are environmentally friendly lasting 10 times longer than traditional halogen bulbs.
