The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq is the luxury marque’s very first all-electric production model, introducing Caddy’s new EV era with a fresh battery-powered crossover. For those customers eager to be among the first to own the new 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition, GM recommended the following ordering procedure for reservation holders.
Naturally, early adopters will be anxious to get their new 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition into their garage, but by the same token, dealers are eager to take advantage of the demand to secure the best price possible. As such, Cadillac strongly encouraged dealers and reservation customers to find an agreement on final vehicle pricing before the dealer submitted an order.
As Cadillac points out, all final pricing for the vehicle and options is negotiated and set by the selling dealer. As such, coming to an agreement on the final vehicle price before the order is placed prevents the dealer from applying a markup once the vehicle arrives.
Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition reservation holders were also allowed to order from a different dealer than what was originally selected. Customers can manage their reservation at cadillac.com, or by calling 1-833-223-4227. Once an order is placed, customers must manage the order with their selected dealer. Note that customers do not necessarily require a reservation confirmation number or associated email address to place a Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition order, although it is preferred.
If the customer decides to cancel their reservation for any reason, the dealer is required to process a refund.
Reservations for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition opened last September. Pricing for the rear-wheel-drive Lyriq Debut Edition started at $59,990, including destination freight charge.
As GM Authority covered previously, the amount of people that signed up for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq waitlist exceeded expectations, and as such, some pre-orders will be moved to the 2024 model year instead.
The Cadillac Lyriq dealer allocation model consists of two parts, 60 percent of which takes into account previous Cadillac crossover sales, and 40 percent of which consists of customers who choose a specific dealer when placing an order online.
As a reminder, the Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition features a rear-mounted electric motor good for 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, powered by a 100.4 kWh battery. Range-per-charge is estimated at 312 miles, while the GM BEV3 platform provides the bones. Production takes place at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee.
