The Electric Cadillac Escalade Might be Called Escalade IQL

Cadillac's upcoming electric Escalade could be called Escalade IQL

  • This name would fit with other EVs in Cadillac’s lineup

  • The Escalade EV will use the same platform as the Hummer EV

  • This model is expected by 2025

General Motors recently filed a trademark for the “Escalade IQL” name, according to to GM Authority.

The documents from the Swiss Federal Institute for Intellectual Property are dated November 17, 2021 and they reveal the name will be used on a motorised land vehicle.

This name will most likely be applied to the upcoming electric version of the Escalade, Cadillac’s largest SUV.

General Motors promised to introduce 30 new electric vehicles by 2025, including a number of Cadillac branded models, and this could be one of them.

The electric version of the Escalade could keep the name “Escalade”, since it is strongly associated with the largest SUV from Cadillac and it is the only model that didn’t follow the two naming convention used by the brand in the last 20 years, using letters and then numbers and letters (ATS, CTS, CT5,CT6 etc.)

The IQL part will be used to differentiate the electric version from the regular Escalade, which should continue production alongside the new model. The “IQ” letters will also tie it in with other electric Cadillacs (Lyriq, Celestiq). The L will most likely refer to a stretched wheelbase version, but it could also be used to market a longer-range model, if such a thing is offered at some point.

Few details are known about this model yet, except that it will be based on the same platform used by the GMC Hummer EV and it will make use of General Motors’ Ultium batteries and electric motors.
