The Cadillac Lyriq arrives as the luxury marque’s very-first all-electric vehicle, mating the usual Cadillac luxury with the latest GM EV tech. Now, we’re adding a dose of aggression to the mix with this exclusive GM Authority Cadillac Lyriq Sport rendering.
For now, the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will launch with the limited-run Debut Edition, as well as the Luxury trim level, the latter of which will be available with both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. However, as GM Authority exclusively covered previously, the subsequent 2024 Cadillac Lyriq will follow the same product strategy as the rest of the Caddy crossover lineup, including the Cadillac XT4 and Cadillac XT5. As such, the 2024 Lyriq will be offered in the base-level Luxury trim, as well as a Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels.
With that in mind, we went ahead and rendered the up-and-coming performance-flavored trim of the 2024-model-year lineup – the Cadillac Lyriq Sport. Given the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq will follow Caddy’s traditional trim level cadence, we though it appropriate to give the all-electric crossover the traditional Sport aesthetic treatment as well.
Up front, our Cadillac Lyriq Sport shows off the big, blocked-off fascia seen previously, with a few details tweaked to give it the appropriate performance flavoring. That includes dark coloring and blacked-out trim for the lighting signatures, upper grille accent, and lower lighting surrounds. The wheels are also done with a dark color treatment and polished lip.
Further black-out bits were added for the door handles and window surrounds, as well as the sideview mirror stems. Even the small badging around the fender is finished in black. The rear of our Cadillac Lyriq Sport continues the theme with dark taillight surrounds.
The new aesthetic will undoubtedly pair well with the higher-level performance specs, specifically the dual-motor powertrain producing over 500 pound-feet of torque. To note, the Cadillac Lyriq is also available with a single drive motor producing 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. Under the skin is the GM BEV3 platform, while production takes place at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee.
