Cadillac is making the transition to a high-tech, all-electric lineup, with several new EV models coming down the pipe. That includes the new 2024 Cadillac Optiq, a fresh electric crossover set to be introduced alongside the ICE-based Cadillac XT4. With the full reveal for the Cadillac Optiq slated for later this year, GM Authority is now compiling everything we know and expect from the EV crossover right here.
Critically, photos of the 2024 Cadillac Optiq leaked online earlier this month, giving us an early sneak peek at the crossover’s styling. A leaked data sheet also reveals that the Cadillac Optiq is larger than originally expected, placing it in the midsize segment, rather the compact segment. In fact, the new Optiq is slightly larger than the current ICE-based Cadillac XT5.
The 2024 Cadillac Optiq will utilize GM Ultium batteries and GM Ultium Drive motors. Horsepower and torque estimates are still forthcoming, but output is expected to reach the ground via rear-wheel drive as standard, or all-wheel drive as optional, the latter of which will offer greater performance.
To note, Ultium technology highlights include a plethora of energy options (50 to 200 kWh), range up to 400 miles per charge, and acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds, as well as the flexibility to quickly ramp up production and meet changing market demands.
The upcoming Cadillac Optiq will be built on top of the GM BEV3 platform, the same platform that underpins the Cadillac Lyriq, the Cadillac Symboliq, the Cadillac Celestiq, and several other GM EV models.
The Cadillac Optiq will be sold in the U.S., China, Canada, and the Middle East. The new Optiq is expected to make its world debut sometime later this year, possibly in China.
