Cadillac Lyriq EV Will Get Massive 33-Inch Interior Screen

Cadillac's huge infotainment display appears to be coming to the upcoming Lyriq EV

  • The first image of the Cadillac Lyriq interior shows a large, flat 33-inch centre screen and instrument cluster in the Cadillac Lyriq

  • Design is similar to the 38-inch display in the new Cadillac Escalade

  • The Cadillac Lyriq is the brand’s first electric vehicle and will be unveiled on August 6


The upcoming Cadillac Lyriq will be Cadillac’s first electric vehicle and a showcase for the company’s most impressive technology. A new 33-inch centre screen drives that point home.

The new screen was shown by GM for the first time to Electrek. The outlet also spoke with Bill Thompson, senior design manager for UI at GM about the new screen.

“The size of the Cadillac Lyriq display is a huge differentiator for us. The form factor is going to be very industry-leading. The huge 33-inch display is a very big differentiator for us, even among the other brands in our portfolio”, Thompson told Electrek.

Thompson also said that future Cadillac models would also get similar displays and that size would be a priority.

This isn’t the first massive Cadillac display screen. The new 2021 Cadillac Escalade features a 38-inch OLED screen. Like in the Escalade, the Lyriq’s screen will have three zones to compartmentalize information.

The left section handles settings for lighting and the heads-up display while the section behind the steering wheel is the digital instrument cluster. The final section is the infotainment and navigation system.

If Cadillac Builds A Supercar, It Could Look Like This

The screen is a single piece however and can display one large image or function depending on the situation.

Cadillac detailed how this could be used for an electric vehicle. The left side could provide info on coming charging stations while the centre display providing range information. The right side could be used to provide navigation information to the next charging station.

Electrek also learned that the centre display would be controlled by a rotary dial while the two other zones are touch-sensitive.

The Cadillac Lyriq signals the beginning of a sustained push towards electrification by Cadillac. It will be unveiled on August 6 as the brand’s first EV, the first of many to come.
