As covered by GM Authority back in February 2023, the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq AWD features 307 miles of range on a full charge per Natural Resources Canada, essentially Canada’s Department of Energy. Now, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released U.S. figures for the Lyriq AWD.
The Natural Resources Canada and EPA have given the 2023 Lyriq AWD the same range estimate: 307 miles or 494 kilometers. By comparison, the 2023 Lyriq RWD has a range of 312 miles, or 502 kilometers, from a full charge, only five miles higher.
It’s worth noting that these Lyriq AWD calculations are for 2023 model-year vehicles, confirming that General Motors did produce 2023 Lyriq AWD models before the switch to the 2024 model year.
For further comparison, The General has already released range numbers for the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq. The rear-wheel-drive variant of the luxury electric crossover has been revised to 308 miles of range, down four miles from the 2023 model year. Meanwhile, the all-wheel-drive variant retains the same 307-mile figure as its 2023 model year counterpart.
As a reminder, the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq RWD features a singe motor mounted on the rear axle. The setup is rated at 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq AWD is equipped with a pair of electric motors – one per axle – and develops a maximum of 500 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. Both models utilize GM’s Ultium battery tech and GM Ultium drive motors.
For the 2024 model year, the Lyriq introduces a new base trim level – dubbed Tech – to the lineup. This new trim is tagged with equipment group 1SA and slots in below the Luxury and Sport trims. Pricing starts at $58,590, including a destination freight charge (DFC) of $1,395.
