Cadillac Working on a Small Electric Crossover

Few details about the new compact Cadillac crossover exist other than it will be XT4-sized

  • It will slot below the Lyriq.

  • The entry-level CUV will be assembled in Mexico.

The rumoured release date for this new upcoming small electric crossover from Cadillac is late 2024 so we are still many many months away from getting concrete details on the vehicle.

2023 Cadillac Lyriq First Drive Review: Making a Statement

Apparently, an early draft was shown to dealers last spring, and it was well received by those present. The overall enthusiasm for the new electric crossover could see it sold alongside the compact XT4, its internal combustion engine’d counterpart.

The new EV will most probably be built upon the 2023 Caddy Lyriq’s GM BEV3 platform, albeit on a scaled-down version. According to GM Authority, this would also mean that it will be powered by GM’s Ultium modular battery pack design and Ultium Drive electric motors.

The performance and range potential could be huge. The RWD Lyriq offers an EPA-estimated 312 miles (502 km) of range with its 100-kWh battery pack, as well as 340 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque.

The Ramos Arizpe assembly facility in Mexico will soon be transformed into GM’s fifth EV-specific manufacturing plant, and this is where the new small electric crossover is expected to be built.
