The American company has officially unveiled the all-electric crossover Cadillac Lyriq. The novelty of the 2023 model year has received modern technology and a futuristic style.

Finally, it happened – after five months of waiting, during which a huge number of teaser videos and photos were published, we were presented with the Cadillac Lyriq electric crossover. The novelty has become a serial embodiment of the previously shown concept of the same name.

The Cadillac Lyriq is the first electric vehicle of the American brand and the first of GM models (Cadillac is part of it), which was built on a new modular electric platform and will use Ultium Long Range battery packs.

Battery capacity 100 kW * h. gives the crossover the ability to travel on a single full charge up to 482.8 km, a level 2 charge speed of up to 19 kW and a DC fast charge of over 150 kW.

Cadillac says the Lyriq will come in both a standard rear-wheel drive configuration and a “performance” all-wheel drive version. And with the Ultium battery pack low to the ground, the crossover has a 50/50 weight distribution. The company has yet to reveal the power of the new Lyriq’s electric motor.

The 2023 crossover has received a new branding style that includes a unique false grille with signature lighting elements, multiple bumper vents and very thin vertical headlights. The rear of the car also has a rather interesting lighting element with traditional taillights at the top of the body and angled LEDs at the bottom. As far as we can tell, some of these elements, such as headlights and mirrors, may still take a different shape by the time of the start of sales. Cadillac claims the Lyriq pictured here is a prototype roughly 85 percent complete.

Inside the Lyriq is one of the world’s largest infotainment displays, measuring 33.0 inches. It is located front and center, and it is a single massive screen that extends from behind the steering wheel to the center of the dashboard.
