2023 Cadillac Lyriq
The countdown has started, the Cadillac Lyriq is coming sooner than anticipated. During a conference call earlier this week, the executives from Cadillac global announced that the production of the first all-electric vehicle from GM’s premium brand will start in late first quarter of 2022 and will be a 2023 model year. It was also announced that, to the surprise of no one, it would use the new battery platform Ultium which will power all future Cadillac EVs.
A feature proper to the Lyriq will be the capability of the battery, not only on the range side of things but also on the charging. In fact, the battery will have a range estimated of 523km and will be capable of accepting up to 19.2kW of charge on a level 2 charger. What that means is, at home, you could have a charging capability similar to a DC fast charger (level 3), meaning lower charging times and most importantly, you wouldn’t have to go out of your way to one of the fast chargers.
One of the other main selling points will be its price, at least ten thousand dollars less expensive than its rivals from England and Germany. The starting price is about $69,898 while getting a 100kW battery pack, this is a great value considering the other luxury brands don’t offer that much capacity.
We can’t wait to get our hands on one of GM’s most anticipated models.
