Canadian Cadillac Lyriq Owners will Be Offered two Charging Solutions

Cadillac will help Canadian buyers of the Lyriq find charging solutions.

  • The brand will pay for the installation of a level 2 charger at the owner’s primary residence.

  • Owners can also choose $750 in Flo charging credits.

  • A 3-year Premium OnStar plan is also included.

Cadillac announced it will help Canadian buyers of the Lyriq find charging solutions by either paying for the installation of a home charger or by providing public charging credits.

The automaker partnered with Qmerit, a network of installers specialized in EV charging solutions.

Every Lyriq comes standard with a dual-voltage charger that can be used with 120 or 240-volt household outlets to slowly charge the battery.

Buyers who choose to purchase an 11,5 kW Ultium PowerUp charging station will be eligible to have it installed at Cadillac’s expense, provided it is to be used at their primary residence.

This charger allows the Lyriq’s battery to be replenished overnight while its owners are asleep, thus making it more convenient than the standard charging solution, which can take up to three days to reach 100% charge.

Since many Lyriq buyers already have an EV charger at home, Cadillac also offers the option to choose a $750 charging credit on the Flo public network of level 2 and 3 charging stations.

This means that drivers can use any Flo station for free in Canada and the United States until the equivalent of $750 has been spent on electricity.

Via the help of Flo’s affiliated networks, this credit can be used in more than 65,000 charging stations across North America.

With its 190 kW fast-charging capability, the Cadillac Lyriq can add 122 kilometres to its range after having been plugged in for only 10 minutes.

The purchase of a Lyriq also includes a complimentary 3-year subscription to the OnStar Premium suite of services. This means that drivers can control a number of the vehicle’s functions via the myCadillac app, and they have 24/7 access to OnStar technicians that can help them in the event of an accident. A 3-year or 72 Go data plan is also included to be used with the vehicle’s Wi-Fi hotspot.
