Cadillac Reveals Its First-Ever All-Electric Vehicles
Cadillac is taking an exciting step into the future with the announcement of not one, but two new electric vehicles! The Lyriq EV will be the first-ever electric SUV from Cadillac. They followed up this exciting reveal with another - the Cadillac Celestiq will be a new flagship electric sedan!
The Cadillac Lyriq is set to arrive in 2022 as a 2023 model year SUV. Featuring two rows of seating, the Lyriq’s interior will hold five people and features a 34-inch curved LED screen along the dashboard. While full details regarding battery range, styling, and performance remain to be seen, we do know the Cadillac Lyriq will be based on GM’s new BEV3 platform. This architecture takes advantage of GM’s new Ultium battery packs, which can provide over 600km of range and reach 100 km/hr acceleration in around 3 seconds. Stay tuned for confirmed Lyriq specs as it enters production!
The Cadillac Celestiq will follow the Lyriq, set to arrive at dealerships no later than 2025 (and likely sooner). While details remain scarce at this point in time, the Celestiq may also utilize GM’s BEV3 platform and will be a hand-built, luxurious full-size sedan. Cadillac previously offered a CT6 plug-in hybrid sedan, but the Celestiq will be Cadillac’s first all-electric sedan. From a styling perspective, the Celestiq is expected to draw influence from Cadillac's Esclala concept vehicle.
These announcements follow GMC’s recent reveal of a new All-Electric Hummer truck, further adding to the General Motors electric lineup alongside the existing Chevrolet Bolt EV.
