Cadillac will abandon the alphanumeric designation of its models by 2030December 13, 2019
Official representatives of the American brand plan to continue further developing internal combustion engines. In addition, they are going to return to the old designation of their models – they will be called only those cars that receive electric motors.
While the South Korean brand Kia is reportedly planning to abandon the continued use of the Optima name for its mid-size sedan and use the designation K5, Cadillac will do exactly the opposite with its future electric vehicles. Company President Steve Carlisle announced that the luxury brand will return to the use of real names, abandoning alphanumeric designations for its future electric vehicles. At the moment, it is unclear whether this means that the guys are going to use some names for their new products, which designated the company’s models in the last century.
This is not the only important announcement Mr. Carlyle made, as he also said that Cadillac could become a brand that produces only electric cars and that could happen by 2030.
At the time of this writing, there was little information about the company’s plans to introduce all-electric models, but we know that we can talk about six new products that, among other things, will have to receive a highly developed autonomous driving system. Images posted by Cadillac that capture the crossover also show a futuristic interior with a massive digital display that extends across almost the entire width of the front panel. Its official presentation may take place early next year as part of the Detroit Auto Show (USA).
Although Steve Carlisle said that we will learn more about the zero-emission crossover in the first quarter of next year, we already know that it will have a minimum range of more than 482 km and a maximum figure of over 643 km. President Cadillac said the development of the model, which will be based on a new platform specifically designed for electric vehicles, is “progressing very well.”
