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 likely won’t be available until at least mid-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.
As an exciting and futuristic new addition to the Cadillac line-up, the brand has kept much of the details about this vehicle a secret. Everything we know is an estimate based on information released by Cadillac. 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.
We don’t have exact pricing numbers or an exact release date. Cadillac hopes to start delivering 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. According to Car & Driver, the estimated Cadillac Lyriq price is about $60,000, but Cadillac has no official price yet.
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 be able to 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. For starters, 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. Plus, 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.
Cadillac has not given an official estimate yet. However, many trusted automotive resources are guessing the all-electric SUV will start at $60,000.
The luxury crossover will be made in Tennessee at the Spring Hill plant. Production will start in late 2021.
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.”
We hope you are as excited about the all-new Cadillac Lyriq as we are. As soon as we know more about the vehicle, we will be sure to let our loyal customers know. In the meantime, feel free to browse our new Cadillac specials that we are offering right now.
