The Roar Goes Electric: Cadillac’s V-Series Gets a Zero-Emissions Makeover

Celebrating 20 Years of the V-Series with a Bold Vision for the Future

  • Cadillac celebrates V-Series 20th anniversary, teases zero-emission Opulent Velocity concept.

  • Opulent Velocity fuses luxury with electrified high-performance, redefining Cadillac.

  • Motorsports proving ground transfers racing tech to V-Series road cars.


Cadillac is celebrating two decades of the V-Series, not just looking back at its high-performance past but also aiming towards an exciting new direction in zero-emission performance. Today, Cadillac gave a sneak peek into the future with the Opulent Velocity concept vehicle.

This bold concept brings together two forces that have defined Cadillac for over a century: luxurious comfort and high-speed performance. Bryan Nesbitt, the executive director of Cadillac Global Design, describes Opulent Velocity as a glimpse into the future of performance and luxury leadership with zero emissions.

The V-Series Origins: Where Passion Met Performance

In 2004, Cadillac’s passion for performance took a new direction with the launch of the V-Series at the Sebring International Raceway. The CTS-V.R race car’s historic win that year marked the start of a legacy that would reshape American performance for the next twenty years.

The V-Series has evolved over time, pushing boundaries in craftsmanship, technology, and thrilling experiences. The latest models, the 2025 CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing, continue this tradition by delivering exceptional power, refinement, and track-ready performance.

Opulent Velocity: A Glimpse into the Future of Performance

The Opulent Velocity concept isn’t just about honouring the past; it’s about leading the way into the future of zero-emission performance. This vision combines Cadillac’s luxurious touch with a thrilling driving experience that’s never been seen before.

As Nesbitt hints, “More details will be shared later this year, so stay tuned.” One thing is clear: Cadillac is ready to redefine what it means to be a performance brand in a time of sustainable mobility.

Racing as a Proving Ground for Innovation

Cadillac’s deep connection to motorsports is at the core of its performance philosophy. From racing victories to the technology in their road cars, racing has been crucial in transferring knowledge and innovation from the track to the streets.

This weekend, Cadillac is back at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring to defend last year’s win, showcasing its commitment to performance and innovation. Brandon Vivian, executive chief engineer at Cadillac, highlights how the V-Series bridges the gap between Cadillac’s racing success and the influence it has on their road vehicles.
