Cadillac announced the company’s fully electric Lyriq, a crossover, will be revealed (online) on August 6 at 7:00 PM (Eastern).
“Building on more than a century of innovation, the Cadillac LYRIQ marks the beginning of a new chapter for the brand – one that is all-electric and redefines the boundaries and limits of mobility and connectivity,” said Cadillac in a news release.
Parent company General Motors is also garnering attention for the upcoming GMC Hummer, which is being reincarnated as a fully electric SUV, and earlier this year announced a $2.2 billion investment at its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant to produce a variety of fully electric trucks and SUVs.
Vehicles such as the Lyriq, that are built on General Motors’ third-generation EV platform, will be powered by the company’s proprietary Ultium batteries. These batteries are notable because they will contain zero cobalt and zero nickel cathodes, and are expected to achieve a driving range of at least 400 miles.
