The sedan body style isn’t particularly popular these days, at least in the U.S. market. Nevertheless, GM still offers a small selection of sedan models, including a few flying the Cadillac crest. As it turns out, Cadillac is still interested in offering new four-doors in the future, and according to GM Authority sources, two new Cadillac sedans are currently in the plans. Unsurprisingly, both will feature all-electric powertrains.
According to those familiar with the matter, Cadillac’s future offerings will include a pair of so-called “low hip-point” (or low H-point) vehicles, which is a reference to the location of the passenger’s hip when seated in the vehicle, relative to the ground. Low H-point vehicles obviously place the passenger lower to the ground, while a “regular H-point” vehicle (such as the Cadillac Lyriq) provides a higher seating position.
The upcoming Cadillac sedans are both considered low H-point vehicles, but do not necessarily conform to the traditional three-box sedan layout. Rather, these models will incorporate more of a sportback profile similar to that of the Cadillac Escala concept or even the Cadillac Celestiq, offering the styling of a low-slung four-door, while maximizing rear cargo room.
Critically, both of the planned Cadillac sedans will feature all-electric powertrains, and both will ride on GM’s BEV Prime platform. BEV Prime is essentially a more premium version of the BEV3 platform currently in use by models like the Cadillac Lyriq, Chevy Blazer EV, and Chevy Equinox EV, with Prime featuring more advanced construction methods, as well as allowance for additional GM Ultium battery cell modules, enabling higher driving range, and additional Ultium Drive motors for more performance and refinement.
Naturally, we’ll have plenty more to say about these exciting new Cadillac sedans in the future, so stay tuned. In the meantime, subscribe to GM Authority for more Cadillac news, GM future vehicle news, GM business news, GM electric vehicle news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
