The Cadillac Lyriq made its grand entrance on August 6th, debuting as a mostly production-intent show car that heralds the luxury brand’s rapidly approaching all-electric future. As Cadillac’s very first all-electric vehicle, the Lyriq is packed with cutting-edge technology, forward-thinking innovation, and futuristic design, all of which are highlighted in the following one-minute, 27-second video.
Titled “Coda,” this video includes slick shots of the new Cadillac Lyriq crossover with a polished soundtrack and voiceover narration from a few of the General Motors employees who worked on it.
The first thing to notice is the Lyriq’s new design language. Taking after the EV concept vehicle that debuted at the Detroit Auto Show in early 2019, the Cadillac Lyriq will inform the luxury automaker’s styling direction moving forward, and is characterized by broad, sloping body panels and an uncluttered aesthetic, blending sculpted surfaces and fluid lines.
The front end incorporates narrow lighting signatures and a broad grille section, as well as a V-shaped front fascia that draws the eye to the center of the vehicle. The roofline is low, and the rear end gets a hatch-like curve that suggests both sportiness and practicality.
The interior is replete with modern technology that adds comfort and luxury. The dash, for instance, features a 33-inch LED display that stretches left to right, offering a generous amount of screen real estate for both driver information purposes, and general infotainment duties.
Cadillac’s semi-autonomous Super Cruise drive system is also on board, easing longer journeys by taking control of the steering wheel.
Finally, the Cadillac Lyriq sports a cutting-edge all-electric drive system capable of propelling the luxury crossover over 300 miles between plugs.
If you’re a fan of the new Cadillac Lyriq, then this video is definitely a must-watch.
As a reminder, the Cadillac Lyriq will enter production late 2022 for the 2023 model year. Production is expected to take place at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck plant in Michigan. Pricing will slot in under $60,000.
