The Cadillac Lyriq represents Cadillac’s first step towards transitioning to an all-electric vehicle lineup by 2030. For the 2024 model year, the Lyriq will 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. Now, we’re getting another look at the new 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Sport with the following GM Authority photos.
Unfortunately, GM Authority photographers were only able to capture the side profile of the luxury crossover. This angle gives the Caddy EV a blacked-out, Darth Vader-esque motif. All exterior accents that are typically finished in chrome on the Luxury model are now finished in black, including DLO (Daylight Opening) trim, door handles, and wheels.
From what little we can distinguish in regards to the front and rear, some of the front fascia elements also seem to carry the sinister theme.
What our profile-only shots do reveal, however, is a stance that appears to be sitting a little lower than normal, possibly hinting that the EV was lowered. Alternatively, the tester could simply have “extra content” in the cargo area.
We should note that it’s unclear if this is the Lyriq Sport is equipped with the “regular” powertrain or if it’s the Lyriq Sport AWD, which features a higher output and AWD drivetrain.
In case you missed it, GM Authority was the first to present photos of the Lyriq Sport in the wild. That particular example was also a Sport model, and also painted in a sinister black hue.
Motivation for the all-electric crossover is sourced from GM Ultium batteries and GM Ultium drive motor tech, while the GM BEV3 platform provides the structure. Production takes place at the GM Spring Hill Plant in Tennessee.
As a reminder, the waitlist for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq has already been filled, while pre-orders for the 2024 Lyriq are currently open.
