The Coronavirus Forces The Cancelation Of The Cadillac Lyriq EV Reveal

Only a week after its introduction, the Cadillac Lyriq’s reveal has been postponed

  • The world learned of the Cadillac Lyriq only last week.

  • It was to be the first electric SUV to be built on GM’s new dedicated platform.

  • This is only one of many event cancellations related to the Coronavirus.


The spread of the Coronavirus is affecting most car manufacturers, disrupting everything from product assembly, to launch events and sales. Less than two weeks ago, we learned that the Geneva Motor was cancelled which lead to a number of virtual reveals. Where Cadillac is concerned, we were expected to travel to California next week to drive the CT4, CT5 and their V editions but it’s been put off. This time, it’s the Cadillac Lyriq’s official debut that’s been postponed.

Ultimately, we hope, all will get back to normal in the coming weeks and months and we will get to sample the anticipated CT4-V, CT5-V and see the results of all the work GM’s done to fast-forward its product line into the 21st Century.

From what we know, the Cadillac Lyriq is about the size of the current XT5, sports a large grille with an illuminated Cadillac crest set smartly in the middle. The sides feature power doors, a long wheelbase ending in a rear-end that includes long vertical taillights that turn into the tailgate. The cabin’s highlight is a 34-inch LED screen that reaches from one pillar to another. Occupants benefit from plenty of room thanks to a flat floor.

For now, the Cadillac Lyriq’s debut is on hold. Meanwhile, the New York Auto Show is so far still on the docket for April. If it does take place, odds are the Caddy will be on hand. If not, we expect another virtual press conference and reveal.
