THE START OF SOMETHING BIG
Cadillac has revealed details of the all-new 2023 LYRIQ. As well as being an entirely new nameplate for the luxury brand, LYRIQ also represents a huge move towards a future of more sustainable luxury mobility.
The announcement of the first all-electric Cadillac is a big deal by any standard, but this exciting new model is more than just another new EV. It is the first step of Cadillac’s commitment to bring brand new models to market that are fully electric vehicles.
The LYRIQ isn’t an existing Cadillac SUV platform that’s been tweaked and adapted to accommodate an all-electric powertrain. It is an entirely new model, built from the ground up, and it’s a powerful symbol of the Cadillac brand for the future.
The buzz around the all-new LYRIQ isn’t just reserved to its stunning styling or its high-tech interior. Cadillac is throwing down the gauntlet by making this five-seat luxury crossover SUV more competitively priced than any of the current competition.
DESIRABLE BY ANY MEASURE
Designing the front fascia of an EV poses questions for any automaker as a traditional grille at the front isn’t required due to a lack of an internal combustion engine. At the moment, some choose to go down the route of a fake grille to retain some semblance of aesthetic convention, but the LYRIQ boasts a bold crest-shaped “grille” illustrated by lights on the front fascia which illuminates differently as the driver approaches or walks away from the LYRIQ.
NUMBERS THAT MATTER
At the heart of the LYRIQ’s electric powertrain will be a 100-kWh battery pack situated in the vehicle’s floor between the front and rear axles. The location of the battery is designed to deliver a low centre of gravity and a perfect 50/50 weight distribution for this integrated EV platform.
The LYRIQ is expected to feature one electric motor driving the rear wheels and a promised range on a full charge of more than 480 km. It’s also expected the EV powertrain will put out 340 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque, but additional powertrain options will eventually be offered as well.
