Updates to existing ICE vehicles will occur.
By 2030, Cadillac will no longer sell new ICEs.
As we know, GM’s committed to selling only new EVs by 2035. Just ahead of that timeline, Cadillac will pull the plug on ICEs come 2030. The all-new Cadillac Lyriq electric SUV introduces a pivotal change for the legendary luxury automaker.
This new era may enable Cadillac to potentially return to its former glory with innovative new design and technology. The last four decades have seen the once “standard of the world” luxury brand tumble and become nothing more than a shadow of its former self. But this is about to change.
“We will be leaving this decade as an EV brand, as things stand today,” Cadillac’s VP, Rory Harvey, told attendees at a virtual launch event for the new Lyriq electric SUV as reported by CarScoops. “Which means we will not be selling ICE vehicles by 2030.”
Now that the new Lyriq SUV has officially been revealed, the next step will be the flagship Celestiq EV. Although not yet official, the Celestiq is expected to launch in 2023, or a year after the Lyriq.
