Cadillac will lead General Motors transition into an all-electric future, with the bold commitment of being in a position to exit the decade with a fully electric vehicle portfolio. LYRIQ marks the first of these world-leading vehicles that will establish Cadillac as a leader not just in luxury but also in the EV space.
LYRIQ represents the fundamental transformation of GM’s global product development process, powered by GM’s Ultium Platform and boasting a combination of the latest automotive technology, premium craftsmanship and a meticulous level of intricacy throughout its design. The model truly sets a new standard for the luxury EV landscape and plays a pivotal role in GM’s vision of Zero Crashes, Zero Emissions and Zero Congestion. Its accelerated path was the result of an ongoing commitment to evolve GM’s global product development processes through the innovative use of cutting-edge virtual engineering tools.
“The Cadillac LYRIQ is in a class of its own, setting a new benchmark in both the luxury and EV space with this one-of-a-kind vehicle. We anticipate that LYRIQ will resonate with customers all over the world, given their appreciation of stunning design and unrivalled performance,” said Jamie Brewer, Cadillac LYRIQ Chief Engineer.
At launch in North America, LYRIQ will be available with premier technologies and stirring performance capabilities enabled by the vehicle’s dedicated electric architecture. LYRIQ will pack a 12-module, 100-kilowatt-hour battery pack and a rear-wheel-drive Ultium Platform that will deliver a 340 horsepower1 and 440 Nm of torque1 and most importantly, about 500+ Km of range with a full charge2.
LYRIQ offers high-speed DC fast charging for public stations at 190 kW, enabling customers to add an estimated 122 Km of range in just 10 minutes of charging time. For home charging, LYRIQ offers a segment-leading 19.2 kW charging module, which can add up to 83 Km of range per hour of charge.
