Cadillac Escalade IQ: First Big Electric Caddy SUV Unveiled at the Montreal International Auto Show

As part of the Montreal International Auto Show, Cadillac unveils its big all-electric SUV


  • The Cadillac Escalade IQ can travel up to 724 kilometers on a single charge.

  • It is built on General Motors’ Ultium architecture.

  • It develops up to 750 horsepower.


This long-awaited electric version of the luxury brand’s flagship model is part of a portfolio that includes no fewer than five current and future models. In addition to the Escalade IQ and the Lyriq, currently available, Cadillac has unveiled the Vistiq, Optiq and Celestiq.

 

The Cadillac Escalade IQ is built on General Motors’ Ultium electric architecture. Defined as a full-size electric SUV, it has three rows of seats and can accommodate up to seven occupants. Thanks to a 200-kWh battery, it can travel up to 724 kilometers on a single charge. On a 350-kW terminal, it fills up at the rate 160 kilometers in just 10 minutes, according to the manufacturer.

Technically speaking, Cadillac claims that power output can reach 750 hp, depending on the driving mode selected. Torque is rated at 785 lb-ft. The Escalade IQ takes just 5 seconds to reach 96 km/h from a standstill. It can tow a load of up to 8,000 lbs.

 

Inside, the Escalade IQ impresses with its 55-inch curved LED screen. In other words, the screen connects the two A-pillars and occupies the full width of the dashboard. The technology includes integrated Google.

 

The Escalade IQ is equipped with Magnetic Ride 4.0 adaptive suspension for maximum ride comfort. It is equipped with 24-inch wheels.

Storage space is provided under the hood. As standard, this electric SUV comes with the Super Cruise hands-free driving assistance system for three years. When it comes to safety, the Escalade IQ doesn’t skimp. It features power steering with blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking in intersections, HD peripheral vision, enhanced automatic parking assistance and front pedestrian and cyclist detection braking.

 

Production of the Cadillac Escalade IQ is scheduled to start next summer. It will be assembled at General Motors’ Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center Zero plant in Michigan. For the moment, the price range has not been announced. We do not expect it to be eligible for government credits.

 

Other Cadillac vehicles at the show include the XT4 2024, Lyriq and CT5 sedan.
