Orders for the Cadillac Lyriq will Open on May 19

Cadillac will begin to take official orders for the Lyriq electric SUV on May 19.

  • Cadillac announced official orders for the Lyriq will be opened on May 19

  • The company also announced that production of the Celestiq electric sedan will begin in 2023

  • Over 20,000 orders are expected

Cadillac announced orders for the Lyriq SUV will begin on May 19, around when the first units are expected to be delivered.

The Lyriq is the first electric Cadillac model to be launched and it will reach its first customers in a couple months.

Orders for the Lyriq will be opened to the public on May 19. This is not the same as reservations, which have been available since the vehicle was unveiled.

Cadillac says it currently has over 200,000 reservations for the Lyriq, with 233,000 people called hand raisers. These people are the ones who expressed an interest in the Lyriq and are subscribed to receive regular updates from General Motors.

According to the automaker, only about 10% of hand raisers actually order the vehicle once it becomes available, so it expects to register around 20,000 orders in the coming months. This is not far off the brand’s sales goal for the year, since Cadillac wants to make 25,000 units of the Lyriq for its first model year, with an increase up to 45,000 units annually for the following years.

Production for the Lyriq is set to begin on March 21st at the Spring Hill, Tennessee plant, which has been extensively modified to accept production of General Motors’ new Ultium line of electric vehicles.

Cadillac also announced that the Celestiq electric sedan which will be its second electric model should begin production in 2023, which means that it will be officially unveiled by the end of the year.
