Cadillac Lyriq EV Teased Again Ahead Of Official Debut On August 6th27
General Motors has once again teased the future Cadillac Lyriq EV ahead of the battery-electric crossover’s official debut on August 6th.
The automaker showed various aspects of the Cadillac Lyriq in a new video promoting the upcoming release of the electric luxury vehicle. Our first glimpse of the vehicle shows the Lyriq’s futuristic front end, which was already teased in previous sketches, but we also get a preview of the unique LED light pattern that is embedded within the front “grille.” Joining the lighting arrangement within the front fascia is a light-up LED Cadillac emblem, which we covered in a previous article, while two vertical LED lighting elements flank the grille on either side.
Later on in the video, we are treated with a look at the vehicle’s front left quarter panel, revealing a monochromatic Cadillac fender badge and yet another dynamic LED lighting element running along the bodyline above and behind the front left wheel. Shortly after, we see a shot of what looks to be the interior door panel, which features a patterned LED light design and door-mounted electric seat controls. Finally, we see a shot of the general silhouette of the vehicle, which Cadillac had already shown previously.
“Building on more than a century of innovation, the Cadillac Lyriq marks the beginning of a new chapter for the brand – one that is all-electric and redefines the boundaries and limits of mobility and connectivity,” the automaker said in a prepared statement. “Today, Cadillac is laying the groundwork for this brighter future by rethinking the interaction between the driver and the vehicle.”
Cadillac says the vehicle to be shown on August 6th will be a “show car” so what we’re seeing is a concept rather than a production-ready model. The production vehicle will be revealed closer to the planned start of production in late 2021.
The Cadillac Lyriq will ride on GM’s new BEV3 dedicated electric vehicle platform and will utilize its new Ultium battery technology. The automaker is staying tight-lipped on battery size and motor specifications for now, but we do know Ultium battery packs will range in size from 50 kWh to 200 kWh, with the largest pack enabling a GM-estimated range of up to 400 miles or more on a full charge. The Lyriq is also a crossover, so it seems highly likely it will be offered with all-wheel-drive.

Can’t wait see what Cadillac brings to the table.
Wow. The rear is going to be quite polarizing.
I got a whiff of Audi Q8 from it. Not necessarily a bad thing IMHO.
I was referring more to the detailing of the C-pillar and tail lamps. I’m with you on the general shape; I like it.
I was thinking Citreon DS.
What a weird place to cut the front fender panel. It makes more sense on the rear fender, but the crest wouldn’t be there. Ugly cladding, too.
Citroen DS. I can see it a little.
Nothing wrong with some French funk in a Cadillac, imo.
Its looking great so far. I can’t wait for it to drop so all the car reviewers and haters can nit pick about the dumbest shit. but one more thing, how is this going to have L – shaped lights? the back of this thing slopes down aggressively.
Too bad we have to wait until then – I think we can use something like this to cheer us up now.
Now that’s what design is all about. Designs today look as if its designer had some animosity towards the car they designed! 😉
Door panels look great. Front is beautiful.
Looks very nice. I hope its very close to the production model. I’ve heard it was 95% of real thing?
Another show car debut by Cadillac… Until I see the real deal, I’ll be reserving judgement.
I’d have to see the finished product but I think the front end is too derivative of current Hyunday Kia designs.
From the ad: “Inspired by ceaseless innovation…”. Who do they think they’re kidding? Cadillac? An innovator? A CEASELESS innovator? I’ll await the product before judging it but the ad is very off putting.
hahahaha no. Cadillac IS an innovator. I bet you didn’t know that Cadillac was the first manufacturer to put electric start in their vehicles in the early 1900s. Or that they were the first luxury brand to implement night vision in their vehicles. Or that the escalade is the first vehicle to have a physically curved organic LED infotainment screen that is more than 1 yard long. do yourself a favor and get tf off the internet
So all the hype for another Cadillac Concept . They are good at showing what they could do but will wait till the real car emerges to judge it . Cadillac please do not change your current front and rear colored emblem to someting similar to the fender badgeing . If you are going to light up the front grill do something similar to the Mazda CX-9 . Getting rid of the colorsin the emblem cheapens it .
This is a pre-production car. 95% for production version.
I know this is a Concept version and most of the Lighting will not make it to production, but man am I so happy to finally see Cadillac add Seat Switches to the Door panel.
I am so super exited to see this car. I have stated many times here and still feel this way…EV’s will be the last chance that Cadillac has to once again becomes a Tier One Luxury Auto Maker yet again. Only Tesla would be leading them in the Luxury EV space. And even I a huge Tesla fan thinks that Tesla is more High Tech EV Maker than all out Luxury.
I hope that these new Cadillac EVs will bring back Cadillac’s former glory.
The front end and door panels look gorgeous. This could give Cadillac the push they need to truly be a worthy competitor
Please GM keep the cost cutters and out sorcerer’s away this time……..
I so agree with that statement. Please DO NOT go back to Cost cutting measures ever again!!!
Hey GM you better hurry up before the next lockdown happens….. enough already!
Yes, and start producing advertisements for TV, and the press, including sending units to Cadillac dealers as soon as pre-production begins. And have some units ready by January 2021 for the annual movie awards in Hollywood to show the public. Many actual Hollywood stars love luxury electric vehicles, but not all want a Tesla.
A 400 mile range on a 200 kWh battery is not efficient: 2 miles per kWh. Then the 50 kWh battery range will be about 100 miles. This is more than enough for me (I drive less than 300 miles a month) but it may turn away potential customers who still want more range without recharging.
When will Cadillac reveal pricing? After August 6th? I am saving for the down payment already.
The largest battery for all BEV3 vehicles will be 200kwh, that battery will not be offered on all vehicles, I would guess the battery size range will be about 80-120kwh.
