Cadillac Introduces Its First Ever EV: The Cadillac EV Concept

The Cadillac EV will mark the beginning of GM’s mass introduction of new EV products over the next few years.

  • Actual vehicle, an SUV, will be revealed this April.
  • A more detailed preview of Cadillac’s EV future to be shared in September.
  • This rendering was shown in January of 2019.

It was just over a year ago, when Cadillac introduced the then new 2020 Cadillac XT6 SUV that the image you see above was shared will all present. This very SUV-looking vehicle is set to become the first full EV for GM’s luxury brand and will launch its series of 20 new EVs for global markets by 2023.

There’s little to go on as far as any specs on this EV, as there are next to none. The flexible architecture that will underpin the vehicle will enable GM to add or remove battery cells as needed, based on the application. This vehicle, which will likely share something with the recently announced Hummer EV, will make use of LG Chem batteries.

Steve Carlisle, President of Cadillac, says that “Cadillac’s EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world.” The recently introduced Cadillac Escalade has a job to do in North America however it’s this EV that has true global potential.

We expect to hear much more from GM and Cadillac in the coming weeks as we approach the Caddy EV’s introduction slated for this April.
