Last night at an accident afore the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Carmel, Cailfornia, Cadillac apparent its Ciel abstraction car, which it calls “an amphitheater admirable touring car.”

Under the sleek, arty lines, the all-wheel-drive Ciel four-seat convertible is powered by a 425-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 agent with accompanying turbochargers.

That engine, says GM, is commutual with a amalgam arrangement that uses a lithium-ion array pack.

So far, so good. Another General Motors abstraction with a amalgam powertrain. But what is it, exactly?

‘Hybrid’ sans details

The aboriginal affair to agenda is that GM has appear about no capacity about the amalgam technology. The 3.6-liter V-6 is a accepted and acclaimed GM agent acclimated in assorted vehicles. But above that, the sole advice is “hybrid with low-speed all-electric drive.”

Instead, the columnist advice focuses abundantly on the styling, the rear-hinged rear doors, the olive copse interior, the Cabernet acrylic blush and nickel-plated trim, the daybed blankets for the three non-driving passengers, and the Ciel’s “celebration of amphitheater motoring.”

[UPDATE: “We are in the branch of concept,” Cadillac’s David Caldwell wrote in acknowledgment to our questions, “so the mechanics of what kinds of systems and advancements abysmal aural the agent and propulsion arrangement are not what we’re communicating aloof yet in detail.”

He added that the powertrain “reflects the basal abstraction that ample affluence cars are not necessarily activity to accept the better accepted engines; they will be accelerating in … technology, while additionally accepting ability … adorable for cars of this kind.”

“But the powertrain is not the capital aspect” of the Ciel concept, Caldwell concluded. “It’s added of a supporting player.”

In added words: “We’re not activity to acquaint you, but amuse focus on the administration and appointments.”]

Next-generation system

Our best assumption is that the Ciel–or added likely, a full-size four-door auto acquired from it, if it goes into production–is application the abutting bearing of GM’s Two-Mode Amalgam system. The accepted Two-Mode is now offered alone in full-size action account and auto trucks, with absolute sales able-bodied beneath 10,000 hybrids per year.

That system, while it’s technically absorbing and saves a huge bulk of fuel, is breathtakingly big-ticket to build–by some estimates, it costs as abundant as $20,000. The new arrangement (whether or not it’s alleged Two-Mode) will accept to be far, far cheaper to be congenital in volume.

The new arrangement will be launched in 2014, or thereabouts. It may or may not go into any assembly car acquired from the Ciel, although as a antecedent central GM told us, “Given the realities of CAFE, some amalgam alternative [of a assembly Ciel] seems likely.”

Not the FWD Two-Mode

GM’s new amalgam arrangement is not, however, the front-wheel-drive adjustment of the absolute Two-Mode Amalgam that was slated for the Cadillac SRX crossover, afore that activity was dead in May. Instead, it’s an all-new, next-generation design–and should be congenital in far college volumes.

This could all change, however.

Our antecedent concluded the chat with the admonishing that, “Everything has been in so abundant alteration beneath [GM CEO] Akerson that annihilation can change.”
