Introduced for the 2023 model year, the Cadillac Lyriq stands as the luxury marque’s first entry into the budding EV market. The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq arrives with several important changes and updates. Among these is the introduction of the new Tech and Sport trim levels, with the Luxury trim level slotting between those. All three trim levels (Tech, Luxury, Sport) are available in the U.S. with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq will be the first GM vehicle in North America to feature 5G network connectivity, standard on all trim levels. The 2024 Lyriq also gets a new power panoramic dual-panel sunroof along with a newly available Nappa Leather seating package, which is genuine leather made from calfskin or other types of soft cowhide.
Regardless of the trim level selected, range-per-charge is estimated at 308 miles for rear-wheel-drive models, with motor output set at 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, and 307 miles for all-wheel-drive models, with motor output set at 500 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. The all-electric luxury crossover rides on the GM BEV3 platform, while GM Ultium batteries pair with GM Ultium Drive motors for motivation.
Sales, however, lag substantially behind Tesla.
The good news is that the Lyriq saw its highest quarterly sales during Q2.
