The upcoming all-electric Cadillac Lyriq Crossover is set to usher in a brand-new era for the luxury marque, dropping is as the first-ever Caddy-badged production EV. However, what if Cadillac decided to offer a coupe body style for the nameplate? What would that look like?
To answer that question, we’ve put together the following rendering. Of course, we should mention that, as far as we know, GM has no plans to actually build a Cadillac Lyriq Coupe – rather, we did this rendering purely for fun.
With that in mind, let’s dive right into the rendering. The first thing to grab you should be the way in which our Cadillac Lyriq Coupe rendering manages to combine aggression with elegance, taking the cues laid out by the crossover model in a whole new direction.
The body is now significantly closer to the pavement, with the large, multi-spoke wheels filling the wheel wells with purpose. The roofline is also lower, while the black cladding seen on the show car was deleted. The rear doors were deleted as well.
All these nips and tucks result in dramatic new proportions. The Cadillac Lyriq Coupe now rocks a fastback profile that looks futuristic and sleek, while the stance and wheels lend it extra aggression as well. Add in the hard lines and swooping curves on the body panels, and there’s no doubt this two-door has the right stuff to turn some heads.
The look continues in the rear, where the lighting signatures frame the rear hatch section nicely. The deletion of the B-pillar also gives it a smooth, clean aesthetic.
As for the real Cadillac Lyriq EV crossover, look for it in a new ad set to air during Super Bowl LV tomorrow. Although the Lyriq was originally slated to launch at the end of 2022, that date has been pushed forward nine months to Q1 of 2022.
