The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq drops in as the second model year for Cadillac’s all-electric crossover, offering GM’s latest Ultium EV technology, as well as no shortage of comfort and luxury. The start of regular production (SORP) for the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq was originally slated to kick off late last month, but now, GM Authority has learned that production of the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq has been pushed back.
As GM Authority covered back in January, production of the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq was originally set to get under way on March 20th, 2023. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that 2024 Cadillac Lyriq production has been pushed back to May 4th.
As before, production of the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq will once again take place at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee. The final day of production for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq was originally scheduled for March 17th, 2023.
GM Authority reached out to Cadillac for comment on the production date pushback. A Cadillac spokesperson did not confirm the later start date, but did state that Cadillac is “on track to begin producing MY24 Lyriqs later this spring.”
Highlights for the new 2024 Cadillac Lyriq include the introduction of a new trim level called Tech. The Cadillac Lyriq Tech trim level is tagged with the 1SA equipment group, and slots in as the new base-level trim below the Luxury and Sport trim levels. Pricing for the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq Tech starts at $58,590, including destination freight charge (DFC).
As GM Authority covered in February, some 2023 Cadillac Lyriq orders have been shifted to the 2024 model year, as confirmed by Cadillac Global Vice President Rory Harvey. Affected customers will receive an incentive for switching to the later model year.
As reported in March, a Cadillac spokesperson previously confirmed with GM Authority that in addition to the Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition, GM will also produce non-Debut Edition units of the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, including Cadillac Lyriq AWD and Cadillac Lyriq RWD variants.
