As General Motors gears up to offer “at least” 20 new EVs by 2023, Cadillac is joining the fray with its own selection of all-electric vehicle offerings. Now, plans for the future Cadillac EV model onslaught have been revealed in the recent General Motors 2019 Sustainability Report.
While the report does not go into extensive detail on the future Cadillac EV models currently in the works, it does provide a nice overview of what to expect.
Heading the list is the up-and-coming Cadillac Lyriq EV crossover. Originally slated for a reveal in April, the new Caddy crossover debut was delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but is currently on track to drop cover August 6th. So far, Cadillac has released only teasers, but we do know that the Lyriq will ride on GM’s new BEV3 dedicated EV architecture and utilize the automaker’s latest Ultium battery technology. Max range-per-charge should be at least over the 300-mile mark, while the cabin will get a 33-inch OLED screen similar to that of the all-new 2021 Cadillac Escalade.
Another future Cadillac EV we’ve collected some info on is the Celestiq, the brand’s forthcoming flagship sedan model. Framed as an “ultra-lux EV with bespoke, hand-assembled craftsmanship,” GM says just 1.2 units will be built per day. We also know the exterior is inspired by the Cadillac Escala concept, with “enormous” exterior dimensions and a sleek profile. Cabin space will be generous, and pricing will be around $200,000. It too will be built on the BEV3 platform.
Then there’s the upcoming full-size Cadillac SUV, which will come with three-rows of seating and DNA pulled from the Escalade. It was originally believed that this all-electric full-sizer would carry the Escalade nameplate, but that’s now uncertain. Range, however, is tipped to be around 400 miles on a full charge. Providing the bones will be the new BT1 EV architecture, which is also shared with the upcoming GMC Hummer EV.
Finally, the report mentions two other future Cadillac EV models, the details of which are still hazy. These include “a globally sized luxury three-row SUV that emphasizes interior space and cargo capacity for the modern family,” and “an SUV EV with attainable luxury – similar to today’s Cadillac XT4 – and aimed at this key global growth segment.” Both are believed to be based on the BEV3 platform.
