Cadillac is cooking up a new all-electric variant of the iconic Cadillac Escalade, and it’s set to drop cover on August 9th in New York City. Dubbed the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ, GM also teased the battery-driven SUV in a new, brief video. The Cadillac Escalade IQ will be produced at the GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan, previously known as the GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant.
The new teaser video is less than 30 seconds long, and shows the 2025 Cadillac Escalade IQ in a series of quick, close-cropped shots, with New York City providing the backdrop. We see a shot of the roof, the rear spoiler, lighting elements, the wheels, badging, and the front end draped in shadow.
“As the brand’s first-ever all-electric full-size SUV, Escalade IQ represents the reinvention of Cadillac’s most iconic nameplate,” the automaker states. “The debut of Escalade IQ marks the next step in Cadillac’s commitment to offering a fully electric portfolio by the end of the decade.”
The 2025 Cadillac IQ will be produced at the GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan, which was recently renovated to serve as GM’s first EV-dedicated assembly facility following a $2.2 billion investment. The facility also produces the GMC Hummer EV, Chevy Silverado EV, and GMC Sierra EV.
Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen the upcoming Cadillac Escalade IQ, as not only has the automaker teased it previously, but GM Authority spy photographers have also captured prototype models out for testing. Standout details include a body that appears to be lower and less bulky than that of the ICE-powered Cadillac Escalade, while under the skin, the Cadillac Escalade IQ will ride on the GM BT1 platform. The wheels will include a design inspired by the Cadillac Celestiq ultra-luxury sedan, while range-per-charge is expected to be around 400 miles. Inside the cabin, spy shots reveal a massive screen that could stretch door-to-door across the dash, similar to the new Celestiq.
