Competitive Sales Comparison (USA)
Cadillac Lyriq sales during the third quarter of 2022 placed the luxury crossover at the bottom of the luxury D-crossover segment when ranked by sales volume. The Tesla Model Y remained in first place with a 20 percent increase to 54,000 units while the Audi e-tron followed in second with a 397 percent rocket to 1,620 units. The Jaguar I-Pace placed third with 104 units, while the Cadillac Lyriq took fourth with 36 units. Neither the I-Pace nor the Lyriq were available during Q3 2021, thus making a year-over-year comparison impossible.

|MODEL||Q3 22 / Q3 21||Q3 22||Q3 21||Q3 22 SHARE||Q3 21 SHARE||YTD 22 / YTD 21||YTD 22||YTD 21|
|TESLA MODEL Y||+20.54%||54,000||44,800||97%||99%||+22.36%||162,000||132,400|
From a segment share standpoint, the Lyriq held a less-than-one percent share. The Model Y posted a segment-leading 97 percent share, down two percentage points, while the e-tron held a three percent share, up two percentage points. Meanwhile, the I-Pace also posted a less-than-one percent share.
As a whole, the electric luxury D-crossover segment grew 23 percent to 55,760 units during Q3 2022, primarily as a result of growth posted by the Tesla.
The GM Authority Take
Cadillac Lyriq sales were minimal during the third quarter of 2022 as a result of non-existent inventory, caused by minimal production volumes.
Production of the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq kicked-off on March 21st, 2022, at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee. Since then, GM has steadily increased production output almost every month, producing 2,000 units in October and 2,477 units in November.
Although Lyriq assembly rates are increasing, output is still restricted by the limited amount of Ultium batteries and Ultium Drive motors as GM works to increase supply via the Ultium Cells plants. While production of Ultium batteries and motors has already begun at the new Ultium Cells plant in Ohio. GM has also secured a $2.5 billion loan from the U.S. Department of Energy to finance the construction of three more Ultium manufacturing plants:
- Ultium Cells in Spring Hill, Tennessee
- Ultium Cells in Lansing, Michigan
- Ultium Cells in New Carslisle, Indiana
Following the completion of these plants, we expect Ultium battery and motor production to drastically increase, unlocking substantial growth of the luxury electric CUV.
Beyond enabling higher Lyriq sales volumes, an increase in the supply of Ultium batteries and Ultium Drive motors will enable a diverse lineup. In fact, the 2024 Lyriq is set to introduce two new trim levels – Premium Luxury and Sport – to join the existing “base” Luxury trim, per the luxury marque’s Y-trim level strategy.
Along with these new trims, the Sport AWD variant was recently introduced in China. Equipped with an electric motor on each axle, this variant will produce 503 horsepower and 524 pound-feet of torque in China, becoming the most powerful Lyriq thus far.
Finally, a more widespread increase in consumer interest in electric vehicles is also expected. As a part of the Inflation Reduction Act‘s $7,500 EV federal tax credit, an increase in interest could result in 50 percent of new car sales being EVs by 2030. For its part, GM plans to introduce 30 new EVs by 2025.
In the meantime, the 2024 Lyriq introduces just a few updates over the preceding 2023 model. As previously mentioned, the introduction of the Sport and Premium Luxury trim levels serves as the highlight of the new model. Smaller revisions can be found throughout, including the addition of the Rear Camera Mirror feature (RPO code DRZ), 22-inch Dynamic Split Spoke Reverse Rim alloy wheels with a Polished Gloss Black finish (RPO code PJA), new seat colors, and – as GM Authority was first to report – flush mounted door handles.
The Cadillac Lyriq rides on the GM BEV3 platform, while production will continue to take place at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee.

2023 Cadillac Lyriq Owners Can Now Activate Super Cruise
Available via a software update installed at the dealer.
Why Is This Website Listing 2024 Cadillac Lyriq-V As An Option?
High-performance luxury EV incoming?
- Sweepstakes Of The Month: Win a 2023 Corvette Z06 Convertible. Details here.
You mention the following Ultium plants:
Ultium Cella in Lordstown, Ohio
Ultium Cells in Spring Hill, Tennessee
Ultium Cells in Lansing, Michigan
Ultium Cells in New Carslisle, Indiana
But don’t mention the Ultium plant in Shanghai, or that the Lyriq for China is being built at the Jinqiao plant located in Shanghai.
How many did the Shanghai plant produce and how many have been sold so far in China?
The Tesla Model Y is NOT a luxury electric vehicle at all. The stark interior is the same as for the Model 3. It may seem a luxury but only due to its cost. The Corvette whici almost cost the same has more interior luxury.
Great news that production of the Lyriq is steadily increasing. If they continue to build at 2-3k units a month, they could have sales that exceed the Model Y. Would be great news.
Looking forward to see one out on the roads in person.
How long to catch up on orders that they took a year ago? Years? GM has managed to take a great deal of EV enthusiasm and turn it into disappointment. The Lyriq is quickly becoming what in the software industry is called vaporware. So disappointing …
I believe the automotive counterpart to “vaporware” is “unicorn”.
on edit: Perhaps in this case “uniqorn”.
The Lyriq can exceed the Tesla Model Y in sales?
How do you figure this?
Do you realize how many Model Y’s are being sold this year and that Tesla is ramping up two huge Gigafactories that make them this year in Austin, TX and in Berlin Germany?
The Model Y has a shot at being the number one sold vehicle in the World in Volume (If all Four Gigafactories Ramp up) which if that happens it will be inane.
As a GM fan how about GM stops talking about EV’s and actually starts making them in meaningful numbers. The Demand around the World is there so stop talking and start Manufacturing.
No reason at all that the Lyriq cannot sell 100K World Wide (If not just only in the USA Market) especially if GM goes back to Europe with its Chevrolet EV’s and Cadillac EV’s.
My mistake. I had it in my mind that the 54000 sales of the model Y was for the year, not quarter.
Another consideration is the the Lyriq is in a completely different class than the Model Y. Model Y is more Toyota RAV4 competition though way overpriced. The Lyrig will match up to the Mercedes EQE SUV and the BMW iX. And the Lyriq will do very well against those models.
But I’m curious. If the model Y is so awesome, why is Tesla dropping the price for the current quarter? Reality is the Model Y isn’t luxury and it’s overpriced. Tesla will have to continue to drop the price of their models to remain competitive, especially as Musk continues to alienate his core customers.
36 deliveries … 😳🤬
The Lyriq should have been produced in high volume (For Luxury Brand Standards) from the get go….another huge letdown for the Cadillac Brand by GM
Not only did GM not even come close to making enough annual units (obviously) as the Lyriq Production numbers are borderline laughable at best, but they first only introduced the Single Motor version. That is unbelievable.
I talk to so many people (Some Tesla Fans and some NON Tesla fans) who are or were extremely excited by the Lyriq but now have moved on (Mostly to Tesla) because they cannot get their hands on one. So disappointing.
GM is always just All Talk when it comes to restoring Cadillac back to where they belong. I am getting sick of it.
Cadillac deserves so much more. They had a Hit on their hands and GM biffed it yet once again.
Lyriq could have been a 100K volume vehicle for Cadillac right from the beginning no doubt about it. The insane demand for it was there but GM wasn’t ready (Still is not) as usual. Another Cadillac letdown
It makes sense for GM to advertise the LYRIQ to make awareness to the general public in advance. GM had no idea how hugely popular the LYRIQ will become and caught them off guard.
Production is increasing monthly and people who are seriously want the LYRIQ will be put on a waiting list.
I do not for one second believe that any Automaker currently can use the overused excuse that they were caught off guard on how popular their EV offering is. The Customers are demanding them and Legacy Auto is dropping the Ball Big time. They have allowed Tesla to become a behemoth in the Industry and that is with ONLY two Fully ramped Factories and two brand new ones that will ramp up within a year. Tesla is about to announce at least one more (Maybe in Mexica) if not two more in 2023.
Tesla will be selling five Million vehicles a year. That is Crazy.
I predicted this years ago and I was laughed at.
Tesla keeps growing their sales by almost 50% every year….they sold about 1.2 Million vehicles this year.
I’m sorry but GM has zero excuses for completely biffing on the Lyriq launch.
The Lyriq should have been a 100K sales volume vehicle per year right from the rip and GM yet once again completely dropped the Ball unfortunately.
Oh exactly .momolos…
When Bob Lutz was around for the Volt – production ramped up quickly to satisfy buyer demand.
The current people in charge remind me of little kids.
Firstly let’s have a debut edition (10 cars maybe tops), and take a full year to get them in buyers hands..
Secondly, a luxury edition with a $3,000 price rise with gobbledygook added that few will ever use such as a home 100 amp charging circuit (19.2 kw charging facility).. These must be the remaining 26 of the 36 since I’m still waiting for mine.
Thirdly, let’s lower the price back down to what we promised it will be and decontent (no specifics given) the vehicle. For 2024-25 of course.
They produced 1,000 in September and 2,000 in October. 4th QTR numbers should be much better.
They must be hoping to make a big splash in EV happy California, because I certainly wouldn’t buy a rwd one here in the snow belt.
Why not? Don’t know how to drive in snow? From the age of 15 to 30 I drove RWD vehicles here in Quebec and we get a lot of snow. Good snow tires all around and you are good to go. Never had a problem. Any car is good if you know how to drive.
As Nova is to -Not going…. Lyriq- long wait, disappointment & overpriced with dealer markup…. GM- over commit & under deliver
They have built 4477, and sold 36?
Exactly… .4477 cars Made? Are they including Virtually computer generated? I know that I’ve been waiting for mine – really for over a year, yet I only was able to get a FACTORY BUILD back on may 19th.
Unfortunately, it seems like 36 actual sales is closer to the truth… And this is according to GM Authority no less.
Production issues aside…… is it just me or does the new Caddy have a rear end that only a mother could love ? With beautiful cars like the Etron already in the market how could Cadillac think they could get away with such a total styling failure?
The team that approved this car should be fired and possibly jailed, it is a travesty in automotive design theory. Production issues can be fixed, but you can’t fix ugly……….
Well said!! The word I thought of was Vandalism ……
Steve & LikeARock:
As far as looks go, I was also a bit hesitant, but from the online pictures it looked to me like a late ’50s Chrysler – which to me was an acceptable look. I did actually see one in person at a Dealer Traveling Roadshow and it looks nicer in person – rather like a gussied up Blazer.
I was concerned about vandalism with the silly light show at approach to the car – until I found from the traveling GM Expert that the light show is DIM, and that you have to be almost on top of the car before it starts – thereby giving you adequate time to start the car and remove yourself from would be vandals.
The dealer told me apparently GM wants to get every released car perfect and to not get it back for the routine initial troubles you have with any other car. Doesn’t explain only 36 sales for the year however (3 per month).
On the ‘Glass half-full side’ GM in the past has, with the EV products at least (Silverado and Bosch Fuel pumps not withstanding), they have produced substantial vehicles… Let’s hope so. If true – the car is a good value.
Mr Howland, I also believe in the glass half full. I just wanna know who the hell has been drinking out of it. I personally have not seen the car. But these photos can’t be far off. We all know the first year is not the year to buy. When the first 2 years go by, there WILL be a refresh and the rear-end will be one of them.
I bought an early first volt in early 2011. Other than the goofy locking latch for the charge port door and the ease at which the fuel pump burns out, the car had been Perfect. I aired my concerns about looks and other aesthetics and it’s up to others to see the car, although lately there are much more than normally ugly cars out there.
I’ve already had one Tesla and dumped it after 4years while the car still had substantial resale pricing. My gm experience has been and should. likely be far superior. The ELR was beyond expectations and while the Lyriq is not quite the looker the ELR was I expect that overall it will be a better value
It only started deliveries September at the end of the 3rd quarter. GM produced 1,000 in September and 2,000 in October. So I would expect to see 4th QTR numbers be much better.
Have you seen the car in person to make that assessment about the looks? On Motor Trends 2023 SUV of the Year Finalists, Guest judge and former Ford design chief Moray Callum thought the Cadillac LYRIQ was the best looking car out there.
I hadn’t seen the car yet but will wait till I see it in person but based on live videos and photos, the design is elegant all around and I’m liking what I’m seeing.
GM should make Lyriq eligible for the tax credit. This is the only way to be competitive with other brands
AS I understand it – until March/April – the car is good for a $7,500 credit and afterwards a $3,750 credit – due to the foreign made battery materials.
im talking about lyriq. The cap is 55k which makes this car not eligible
Ahh, but from what I’ve read, it’s classified as an SUV and this has a much higher price cap. All versions should qualify.
It’s listed on the IRS page with $55k limit.
They have various criteria for it to be an SUV. AWD is one, or GVWR over 6,000lb,
And 4 of the following:
(i) Approach angle of not less than 28 degrees.
(ii) Breakover angle of not less than 14 degrees.
(iii) Departure angle of not less than 20 degrees.
(iv) Running clearance of not less than 20 centimeters.
(v) Front and rear axle clearances of not less than 18 centimeters each.
Or it has to have a cargo volume capacity greater than the passenger volume. Or have a removable or folding 3rd row that creates a flat cargo floor. Or the ability to Transport more than 10 persons; or Provide temporary living quarters; or Transport property on an open bed;
According to NY State, Lyriq is an SUV and gets $7,500.
NY is probably using a different set of rules than the IRS.
I stand corrected: US treasury said their final determination is that LYRIQ is a Passenger vehicle and therefore NO tax credit… NYS $500.
It’s eligible, but listed on the IRS website as having a $55k MSRP cap.
I appreciate GM thoroughly going over the Lyriq before delivery to ensure the vehicles meet Cadillac’s incredibly high quality control standards. I wish other brands would follow Cadillac’s example and wait to release new models until all the kinks were worked out.
Try to buy snow tires for 22″ wheels……………Little to choose from…………Paul
