Cadillac unveils new Lyriq electric crossover teaser

July 30, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The press service of the American brand has published a teaser for the electric crossover Cadillac Lyriq. In the photo we are shown a huge charging port door, as well as a novelty wheel.

We’re just days away from the big debut of the Cadillac Lyriq electric crossover, the first of many soon to be unveiled by GM, of which Cadillac is a member. So far, we’ve seen a few teasers of the upcoming new product, one showing the sleek silhouette of the crossover and the other showing the incredibly long infotainment screen. Now we see an image of a rather large size of the charging port door of an electric vehicle and some details of its wheel.

Located just behind the left front tire, the massive charging port door is actually about half the size of the front fender.

It opens forward, positioning itself above the front wheel, revealing the charging port, surrounded by some interesting lighting details. It’s unclear if the door is spring-loaded or motorized, but this design element definitely grabs attention.

As mentioned, the teaser also gives us a closer look at the wheels of the new Cadillac Lyriq. Directional high-spoke rims that look like glossy blacks and / or carbon fiber inserts should add some extra style to the crossover’s overall look.

Most of the important details of the Lyriq – such as performance, number of trim levels and price – are still under wraps. But we do know that the electric novelty from Cadillac will be built on General Motors’ modular EV platform, have new Ultium batteries, and offer advanced features like SuperCruise intelligent cruise control.

We’ll find out everything there is to know about the electric crossover when it officially debuts on August 6 and then goes on sale next year. The Lyriq will be produced at the automaker’s refurbished assembly plant in Detroit-Hamtramck, USA.

Not so long ago, we wrote that Cadillac chose a name for a new electric car. GM Corporation registered the new Symboliq trademark in the United States on Tuesday July 28th.
