General Motors will begin taking reservations for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq electric crossover in September.
In a shareholder letter published this week, GM Chair and CEO Mary Barra revealed that reservations for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will open on September 18th. Customers can already register their interest in the vehicle and sign up to receive updates on it via Cadillac.com.
It’s not yet clear if a down payment will be required to reserve the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, though seeing as GM charged interested parties $100 to reserve a spot in line for the GMC Hummer EV following the electric pickup’s debut late last year, it seems likely.
The Cadillac Lyriq will enter production at the GM Spring Hill Assembly plant in Tennessee in March 2022. The Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition will be the first variant to arrive and will come with a single rear-mounted electric motor along with a 100 kWh lithium-ion battery providing more than 300 miles of range on a full charge. Other standard equipment includes a 19.2 kW onboard charger, Cadillac’s hands-free Super Cruise driving assistant and an AKG audio system, among more.
GM invested $2 billion in its Spring Hill Assembly plant in order to prepare it to produce the Cadillac Lyriq. The investment will enable GM to install new machines, conveyors, controls and tooling at the facility, converting it into a state-of-the-art EV manufacturing site.
“These investments underscore the success of our vehicles today, and our vision of an all-electric future,” Barra said of the plant upgrades when they first announced last fall.
Prices for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will start at $59,990 in the U.S. including destination and freight charges. Pricing for the well-equipped Debut Edition model has yet to be revealed.
