Back in 2021, during a press briefing regarding the Cadillac Lyriq, Vice President of Global Cadillac, Rory Harvey, was asked about a potential high-performance Lyriq variant, possibly something under Caddy’s V-Series line of vehicles. Although Harvey’s response wasn’t direct, it did hint that a Cadillac Lyriq V-Series was indeed under consideration.
“I’m not going to answer that question directly at this point in time, we need some other information to talk about that,” Harvey said in response to a question about a Cadillac Lyriq-V. “But the way that I would respond to that is that if you look to Cadillac in the past, having sporty variants has been part of our heritage and we understand that there is a need and a desire and that is something that we’re looking at and evaluating looking forward. So more to come on that.”
Then, in March 2023, GM Authority noticed the presence of a “V” trim level on the Cadillac Accessories website, serving as our first official proof that a Lyriq-V is, in fact, on the way.
