The Cadillac Lyriq EV is slated to become the luxury brand’s first all-electric vehicle, scheduled to make its online debut in concept form on August 6th. So far, Cadillac has provided a few teaser images of the new Lyriq, and we’ve even drawn up our own digital rendering based on the intel collected thus far. Now, we have a clean shot of the crossover’s rear end thanks to an image of the upcoming Lyriq’s instrument panel.
The image shows the Cadillac Lyriq traveling down the road below a speedometer and range indicator, as well as navigation directions. The all-electric crossover also has a circle around it with the word “Active” directly below it, indicating the activation of digital driver assist systems.
Most importantly, the image shows the Cadillac Lyriq’s rear end completely undisguised. The roof is done in black, while the lower body panels are silver. The tail lamps stretch down from the roof into the rear pillars, angling back into the crossover’s hatch to form a single unbroken styling line. Vertical rear lighting can be found in the bumper corners.
We also notice the rear tires are quite wide, filling the pumped-up rear fenders with ease. The sideview mirrors are slim, and a trailing-edge roof spoiler is attached to the top of the rear hatch. There’s also a prominent lower valence section. Finally, a Cadillac crest is found underneath the rear glass.
As we’ve covered before, the Cadillac Lyriq will come with a front end reminiscent of the initial sketch for the Lyriq that GM released at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The profile will adopt a long, almost shooting brake-like shape.
The Cadillac Lyriq will be built on the new BEV3 electric platform and will be roughly the same size as the Cadillac XT5 and Cadillac XT6. The standard model is expected to offer RWD, while AWD will be offered. The crossover will be powered by GM’s new Ultium battery technology, with an estimated range up to 400 miles or more on a full charge. Production will take place at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant.
