Cadillac, with a history of boat-like gas guzzlers, announced Wednesday that it will only produce battery-powered electric vehicles going forward.
“Every new Cadillac, that we introduce from this point on in North America will be a state-of-the-art luxury electric vehicle,” said Rory Harvey, vice president of Cadillac sales, service and marketing, during the announcement.
The automaker also introduced the production version of the 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ. The electric luxury SUV is running ahead of schedule and customers may place order reservations beginning in September 2021, with initial availability starting the first half of 2022.
The vehicle will leverage GM’s Ultium Platform and is expected to have a range of about 300 miles. LYRIQ also offers high-speed DC fast charging for public stations at 190 kW, enabling customers to add an estimated 76 miles of range in about 10 minutes.
LYRIQ pricing will start at $59,990.
