The premiere of the Cadillac Lyriq 2021 electric car was planned for April 2020, but it was postponed because of the coronavirus. Now the new date has been announced, the serial version of the new Cadillac will be shown on August 6, 2020 at a special Cadillac event.
Cadillac noted that in August this year not the concept of the future model will be presented, but its serial version, ready for mass production. At the same time, the terms of Cadillac Lyriq release to the market are not disclosed yet.
In an intriguing video teaser published on this occasion, the company showed some details of the future novelty. In particular, the video shows a crossover silhouette, reminiscent of a concept car Cadillac EV. Lyriq has an illuminated radiator grille, angular air intakes with integrated running lights and unusual rear stands. Also the manufacturer allowed to look into the cabin of the electric car with three OLED-displays with a total diagonal of 38 inches, like the Cadillac Escalade.
It is known that the crossover is built on a new electric "trolley" of General Motors. It involves the use of new generation Ultium batteries with capacity from 50 to 200 kWh. According to preliminary information, Cadillac Lyriq will be offered with one and two electric motors with rear and all-wheel drive. Range reserve - up to 480 km.
What concerns the design of the future electric crossover Cadillac, it is remotely reminiscent of the Range Rover Velar - at the end of the teaser the outlines of the model are shown. At the same time, the video itself shows the technologies that already exist on the new Cadillac Escalade: a virtual dashboard, a night vision system with the function of recognition of animals on the road and an automatic bow thruster system.
Cadillac keeps the details a secret, but the company says that Lyriq marks the beginning of a new chapter for the brand - all-electric, which redefines the boundaries and limitations of mobility and connectivity.
Motion of electric cars is beginning to expand very strongly, the choice in the car market is already very large and there is already something to choose from at almost any price. For the CIS countries, the only thing left is to establish infrastructure and most people are more likely to switch to electric cars, because it is much easier and faster to maintain these cars.
