The Cadillac Lyriq will be a battery-electric utility vehicle and will take on other similar offerings like the Jaguar I-Pace. The luxury brand had initially planned to pull the veil from the new EV during a special event in April, but those plans have been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It’s not clear when we may see the vehicle now, but it could debut at the 2020 New York International Auto Show, which has been pushed back to August due to COVID-19.
A concept version of the vehicle is expected to be shown first, but the concept will be highly representative of the eventual production model. The concept will appear very similar to the vehicle in the design renderings in this article, which were released by GM at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit last January. GM has also released a teaser showing the vehicle’s silhouette (below), revealing its sloped roof and narrow greenhouse.
The Cadillac Lyriq will ride on GM’s new BEV3 dedicated electric vehicle platform and will use the automaker’s new Ultium battery technology. We’ve written about the Lyriq quite extensively already, revealing some details about its exterior and interior styling and various features. The EV was originally set to go into production at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant in 2021 as a 2022 model year vehicle, though it’s not clear if the pandemic will delay its eventual arrival.
We’ll be closely following the Lyriq in the months leading up to its debut and after, so be sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more Cadillac Lyriq news, Cadillac news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
