This will be Cadillac’s first fully-electric vehicle.
These are the first official images of the LYRIQ from Cadillac.
These few images shared by Cadillac certainly are teasers as they reveal very little. What we do know is that the XT5-sized crossover will not only represent the first EV in a line of many for Cadillac, but that its craftmanship will be inspiring.
Initially, the Cadillac LYRIQ was meant to be introduced at the beginning of 2020 but the delay will have served a purpose and built anticipation. This critical introduction for GM will launch the American carmaker into the future and open the floodgates to numerous new electric vehicles.
The main picture is the sole hint we get at Cadillac’s new design language. The only comment that can be made is that the charge-port access door looks quite dramatic. A large panel seems to slide to the side and reveal the illuminated port. The only other clear elements are the wheels. The multi-spoke aero-blade-like design is sporty and very premium at once.
GM introduced its new Ultium battery technology earlier this year and the Cadillac LYRIQ will be first to be powered by them.
The official virtual reveal will take place on Thursday, Aug. 6, 2020, at 7 p.m. ET.
