Cadillac and Buick to Lead GM’s EV Plans

General Motors is ramping up its EV offerings and its premium Cadillac and Buick brands will fully convert first

  • Both will sell only EVs by 2030.

  • GM as a whole will make only EVs by 2035.

We’ve just returned from test driving the all-new all-electric 2023 Cadillac Lyriq and we truly appreciate GM’s ongoing EV efforts. We’re also quite intrigued by Buick’s Wildcat Concept and based solely on these two vehicles, we are looking forward to their all-EV lineup come 2030.

2023 Cadillac Lyriq First Drive Review: Making a Statement

GM’s focus almost seems a little scatterbrained. While they currently have four EVs for sale including the Cadillac Lyriq, the GMC Hummer EV pickup, and the two versions of the Chevrolet Bolt EV, they are promoting Chevrolet’s transformation most with the upcoming Silverado EV, Blazer EV, and Equinox EV. This is where EV sales volume will come from.

But the premium Cadillac and Buick makes are the ones that will serve as poster brands for General Motors’ move towards full electrification by 2035. By the end of the 2020s, both makes will have benefitted from the General’s $35 billion investment toward autonomous and electric vehicles through 2025, according to Automotive News.

The massive injection of funds will support GM’s plans to deliver as many as 400,000 EVs in 2023 and up to 1 million in 2025.
