GM launching Electric SUV Cadillac Lyriq in ‘Few Months’
General Motors’s prototype version of an electric Cadillac Suv Lyriq has been assembled. President Mark Reuss said that the final version would be handed over to customers in the next few months.
Detroit-based GM was recently discredited as its No.1 US automaker in the rankings. It is fighting with the long-standing rival Ford Motor over which company will offer more electric vehicles by 2025.
“Our teams have laboured tirelessly around the Cadillac lyric electric SUV, getting the launch up nine weeks ahead of schedule,” Reuss stated.
The Cadillac lyric electric SUV is a mid-sized electric SUV that GM revealed in August 2020 to shift its conventional combustion engine lineup into an electric model.
General Motors’ Cadillac electric SUV will be offering its customers the Lyriq, Symbolic, Celestiq, Escalade ESV, and a compact SUV before 2025.
In addition, the automaker stopped the production process of their EV version of the Chevrolet Bolt in August after a necessary battery recall. The automaker has since extended the suspension to the end of February.
The company has plans to invest over $4 billion (roughly around Rs. 29.805 million) into two Michigan factories to increase its production capacity for electric vehicles, as per documents released by sources in December.
What does Cadillac Lyriq stand for?
The name Lyriq follows a pattern of several prior Cadillac concept vehicles, including the Evoq, Provoq, and Celestiq, all deliberately ending in “q”. The name Lyriq for Cadillac’s first EV is derived from the Cadillac brand being mentioned in more music lyrics than any other brand, automotive or non-automotive.
Is the Cadillac lyriq an SUV?
This electric luxury midsize SUV introduces a new generation of battery technology, dynamic styling and Cadillac’s latest technology features.
Where will the Cadillac lyriq be built?
The Ultium-based Lyriq is expected to enter series production by the end of this quarter at GM’s Spring Hill, Tennessee assembly facility, while the customer deliveries should start in the first half of this year.
