2024 Cadillac Lyriq Sport Spied Testing: Exclusive18
The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq follows the EV’s debut for the 2023 model year with a variety of important updates and changes, including the introduction of two new trim levels – the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Sport, and the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Premium Luxury. Now, we’re getting our very first look at the new 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Sport with the following exclusive GM Authority photos.
For those readers who may have missed it, the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq will apply Cadillac’s Y trim level strategy to the all-electric crossover, expanding the lineup with the more opulent Premium Luxury and the performance-flavored Sport. The model featured in these photos is the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Sport, which adds a selection of unique styling enhancements to the mix.
Up front, for example, we see the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Sport rocking a revised grille design and unique lighting pattern as compared to the standard Cadillac Lyriq Luxury. Although the upper horizontal lighting and lower vertical lighting looks familiar, the inner grille section is slimmer and incorporates a prominent center divider bar that makes the front fascia appear both lower and wider. The inner grille design is also different, ditching the bright lines of the Luxury trim level.
Also notable is the window trim, which replaces the polished silver seen on the Luxury trim with new black surrounds, following in line with other Sport themes seen elsewhere on the body. There’s also a set of large alloy wheels in the corners.
Moving into the rear of the vehicle, we see the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Sport running a set of smoked (Neutral Density) taillights, with a dark finish applied to the horizontal lighting in the hatch, as well as the tall vertical lighting in the corners. Notably, the rear badging is silver.
Further notable details include the interior, where, if we look closely, we see the new seat color way that GM Authority exclusively reported on earlier this week. The new design incorporates center piping with two sets of three stripes that run parallel to the spine of the seat, as well as piping around the edges of the seat.
As a reminder, GM is currently taking pre-orders for the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq. Motivation is sourced from GM Ultium batteries and GM Ultium drive motor tech, while the GM BEV3 platform provides the bones. Production takes place at the GM Spring Hill Plant in Tennessee.

This version actually looks better and simpler than the regular design. Many drivers, including myself, don’t like chrome and prefer a more stealthy look, all in black.
I like the stealthy look as well.
I might be in the minority with this opinion….Black does not look good on the Lyriq.
i like chrome,70 year old male..Caddilac i dont think wants our sales anyway!
Lol, gm is after sales to all the college, university people in their 30’s & 40’s (gm is competing with school loans and house payments). It is the seniors that have the most money saved/invested. Another gm backward thinking.
When I ask my kids what car/truck/suv we should purchase next, nothing gm is mentioned.

What is with the Dashboard. Where is the curved screen?
The Curved Screen is there, just the HUD hump is hiding it.
HUD looks pretty bulky. Probably the new augmented reality HUD.
You will find images of the dashboard in the separately linked gallery with more than 150 photos.
I don’t think Cadillac is making any Lyriqs for delivery this year,
Several have already been delivered.
Why Cadillac don’t compete with European and Asian carmakers in designing better and adding more attractive colors (saddle) of the INTERIOR of the cars.
When you say “several” have been delivered, the amounts are incredibly small. GM reported that Cadillac Lyriq production which began in March 2022, “have initial deliveries in process”. We’re talking about a handful of vehicles thus far.
GM Q1 2022 EV deliveries according to Inside EVs has the latest industry data. The Chevrolet Bolt EV/Bolt EUV (affected by a massive battery recall) is rebounding after production resumed in April. Here are the numbers:
Chevrolet Bolt EV/Bolt EUV: 6,945 (down 38% year-over-year from 11,263)
GMC Hummer EV Pickup: 272 (new)
Total: 7,217 (down 36%) and 1.2% share of GM’s volume. EV’s remain a tiny part of the GM’s overall production, factoring in ICE sales.
By way of comparison with the industry leader Tesla, they produced over 258,000 vehicles and delivered over 254,000 vehicles in Q2. So while GM is growing, so is everyone else, as well as the overall market.
They started slow production due to limited battery availability, but now that the new battery plant in Ohio has started production that’s about to change. Same goes for the hummer too.
The front end is ok as an option to the chrome one but the rear end something doesn’t work. Look at all the lines/creases and excessive details. Zoom in if you have too. That’s not design. I’ve washed many of vehicles by hand as I’m sure you have, nothing really flows here. Over kill at its best!
I like it much better than the other trim that was shown in all the promotional material, but the Blazer EV is just nicer IMO. Maybe I just like the look better, but I would choose the SS Blazer EV everytime. They really seem to be competing with their self, but I guess they have already been doing that for years with all the different ICE CUVs
My dealer in Atlanta thinks they will get a Lyriq demo model within the next 6 weeks.
