Accompanying an announcement recently made by General Motors outlining the direction of the group’s global electrification strategy and that of its brands, Cadillac has offered a glimpse of its first Electric Vehicle (EV): The Lyriq SUV.
This news comes a few months after the model was first officially introduced in January with a series of design sketches. Last week, the company published a teaser clip of the real deal, which is slated to make its debut on April 2.
At a private event recently held by the company, a handful of people were able to see a precursor of the production model which, according to those who saw the vehicle, looked similar to the unnamed Cadillac crossover teased in January.
Though details about the model are scant at this point, GM revealed in a publication outlining its electrification strategy that the Lyriq will be built upon the third generation of its EV platform and use its Ultium batteries — the same ones which will give power to the resurrected and electrified Hummer debuting in May.
