The future is coming, and its name is the Cadillac LYRIQ. Unlike our current new Cadillac SUVs for sale, the Cadillac LYRIQ is an entirely-electric SUV engineered with some of the world’s most innovative technology. This car will be Cadillac’s first-ever jump into the electric sector. The Cadillac LYRIQ was revealed in late 2020 but isn’t available to order until May 2022. Below you’ll learn all we currently know about this ground-breaking vehicle. Feel free to call Quantrell Cadillac in Lexington if you have any questions.
This exciting and futuristic new addition to the Cadillac lineup is on its way to our dealership. According to Cadillac, there will be a single-motor rear-wheel-drive and a dual-motor all-wheel-drive version of the Cadillac LYRIQ. The vehicle has a low center of gravity and a spacious, high-tech interior.
Cadillac hopes to deliver the Cadillac LYRIQ by mid-2022 as a 2023 model. As soon as we have it at our premier Cadillac dealership near Louisville, we will let you know.
The Cadillac LYRIQ is expected to have a 100kWh battery that improves packaging and wiring. The battery is estimated to give the Cadillac LYRIQ more than 300 miles per charge.1 This SUV is compatible with DC fast-charging stations and home power outlets. With a DC fast charger, you should be able to get a max charging figure of up to 150kW.2 With a Level 2 charger, you should get a charging figure of up to 19kW.2
The battery is placed in a way that helps give you a superior ride. The Cadillac LYRIQ also achieves a near 50/50 weight distribution.
Here are some of the features we know so far. The Cadillac LYRIQ gets an enormous 33″ curved advanced LED display that combines the infotainment and driver’s gauge display. The LYRIQ will also have a 19-speaker AKG sound system for impeccable listening. You can also enjoy new active noise cancellation technology to keep your luxurious interior quiet.
A new head-up display will enhance your augmented reality to give you better navigation and information signals. It will be the first Cadillac vehicle to get Super Cruise3 technology – a hands-free driver-assist system.
The configuration on the Cadillac LYRIQ is a spacious and cozy four-seater, two-row setup. You’ll have tons of cargo hold, driver volume, and passenger volume.
General Motors is launching a brand-new line of EV technology for the LYRIQ called the Ultium. This battery minimizes the use of rare-earth materials. The Ultium is based on a new modular electric vehicle platform and allows GM to produce batteries that range from 50kWh to 200kWh.
The center console of the new Cadillac LYRIQ is highlighted by an integrated 33-inch advanced LED display that creates one continuous screen curved toward the driver. Cue up your favorite playlist and enjoy the soundtrack of your drive through a 19-speaker audio system. Since there is no transmission, there’s no transmission tunnel, which means you have more legroom and space. Front seats with lumbar support also elevate your drive, as well as lumbar massage, heating, and ventilation.
When the Cadillac Lyriq delivery date arrives and you slip behind the wheel of a new Cadillac LYRIQ electric car for sale, you’ll have a suite of driver-assist technologies helping to keep you and your passengers safe. This comprehensive suite of smart safety systems includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, an HD Rear Vision Camera, and more.
If you’re looking for a vehicle that can reflect your mood or help you create a new emotion, the Cadillac LYRIQ features a 26-color LED spectrum of ambient lighting that adds soothing warmth or uplifting energy.
The electric Cadillac LYRIQ dimensions are 196.7 inches long, 63.9 inches tall, and 86.9 inches wide with the mirrors. These measurements add up to 105.1 cubic feet of passenger volume. When packing your gear, you’ll have 28 cubic feet of trunk area and up to 60.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the rear seats folded. The Ultium battery powering this five-seat SUV boasts a Cadillac-estimated range of over 300 miles1 on a full charge. You can expect 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque for a Cadillac electric SUV that moves. If you’re looking for a vehicle that can tow your small watercraft, the Cadillac LYRIQ can trailer up to 3,500-pounds.2
The 190 kW DC charging system can charge your Cadillac LYRIQ up to 76 miles of range in about ten minutes.3 If you’re plugging into an at-home Level 2 (AC) outlet, you can expect up to 52 miles of range per hour of charge time.4
The interior provides 38.6 inches of front headroom and 37.7 inches of second-row headroom. You and your co-pilot will also enjoy up to 41.4 inches of legroom, 58.9 inches of shoulder room, and 56.5 inches of hip room.

According to Philip Dauchy (Head of Global Brand Strategy for Cadillac), LYRIQ is the first of a new line of vehicles that will end in “iq.” He also said it signals a new type of vehicle “that works in concert with man, nature, and machine.”
