The RWD Cadillac Lyriq will Start at $69,898 in Canada

Cadillac announced the price for the entry-level Lyriq in Canada, but we will still have to wait for the price of the AWD variant.

  • The entry-level rear wheel drive version will have up to 502 kilometers of range

  • Deliveries of this model will begin in the fall, followed by the AWD variant early in 2023

  • The Lyriq will be able to charge at rates up to 190 kW, which gives 122 kilometers of range in 10 minutes

Cadillac announced the starting price for its Lyriq electric SUV in Canada: $69, 898 for the RWD version.

The Cadillac Lyriq will be available in two versions, one with a single motor powering the rear wheels and another with an additional motor up front that will make it all-wheel drive.

The Lyriq will be available for order starting in three days, but the first deliveries are expected only in the fall for the RWD version and in 2023 for the AWD model.

The equipment differences between the two versions have not been announced yet, but the RWD model’s specifications have been publicised, as well as some of the AWD’s details.

Indeed, we know the RWD version will deliver 340 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque due to a 100 kWh Ultium battery composed of 12 modules. This will be sufficient to enable the Lyriq RWD to drive up to 502 kilometers on a single charge.

This battery will be capable of charging at 190 kW, a rate at which the range will increase by 122 kilometers in 10 minutes. On a slower level-2 charger, a rate of 19.2 kW will be possible, making the Lyriq’s range gain 83 kilometers per hour.

The AWD model will use the same battery, but its output topping out around 500 horsepower and its increase in weight will lead to a shorter range than the RWD. This version will also be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds, something the RWD model won’t be able to do.

Inside, the Lyriq will feature a 33-inch screen that will house a new Google-based infotainment system that includes the Google assistant and Google Maps.

Another new feature aimed at improving the comfort inside is the Next-Generation Active Noise Cancellation, which uses the sound system to emit a white noise that cancels out the sound coming from the tires and the wind in order to improve the silence on board.

Cadillac has not yet revealed the Canadian pricing and the range of the all-wheel drive variant of the Lyriq, this information should be made public later in the year when this version begins production at the Spring-Hills plant in Tennessee.
