General Motors made a big splash at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this year, introducing a variety of new concepts while underlining its commitment to electric vehicles and new technology. Among the concepts revealed at CES was mention of a new two-seater Cadillac concept with a battery-driven powertrain and stress-reducing cabin space, leading to speculation over what the new Caddy might look like.
At this point, details on the new two-seat Cadillac concept are few and far between, with GM’s vice president of global design, Michael Simcoe, providing a brief description of the vehicle during a 51-minute keynote video presentation released for CES 2021.
“We have other concepts coming including a luxurious two-seater designed for you and someone very special to decompress, relax and enjoy a multi-sensory experience choreographed for more intimate journeys,” Simcoe explains during the presentation.
While this isn’t much to go on, there is one possibility we can point to with regard to the exterior design of this new two-seater Cadillac concept.
As GM Authority covered back in 2018, General Motors previously filed a design patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that shows what appears to be a new Cadillac coupe model. The design bears a streamlined and elegant body, with cab-back proportions and an upturned rear tail section.
The look mates elegance and precision with a sporty, yet luxurious feel, which could be the perfect combo for the as-of-yet unnamed two-seater Cadillac concept. Critically, the front end of this design also looks to contain early fascia cues replicated in the new Cadillac Lyriq crossover and Cadillac Celestiq flagship sedan. Pair all that with the lack of any obvious exhaust outlets (suggesting an EV powertrain under the skin), and this could very well be the upcoming two-seater Cadillac concept Simcoe mentioned in his presentation.
