Cadillac’s first electric car will appear in about a yearDecember 1, 2019
The debut of the electric car was announced by the vice president of GM. It is expected that after this new product, most of the company’s products in the next three to seven years will also be electrified.
More recently, Rick Spina, GM’s vice president of electric and autonomous automotive programs, suggested that Cadillac’s first electric car should make its debut “a little more than a year from now.” He spoke about this during an interview with the Detroit Bureau.
Rick Spina said nothing about the specific model, but an electric crossover was introduced at the beginning of 2019 at the North American International Auto Show. Although the automaker does not disclose information about the new product, it is known that the car will work on a newly developed modular platform, which was specially created for electric cars.
Many details remained unsolved, but Cadillac President Steve Carlisle said a little earlier that the model “will fall into the center of the crossover market and satisfy the needs of customers around the world.” He also added that the car “will represent the pinnacle of luxury and innovation.”
Despite the fact that Rick Spina did not disclose details about the first Cadillac electric car, he still suggested that a whole assortment of other new models with electric motors should follow after this car.
“A fairly large part of our products will be electrified in the next three to seven years,” the specialist added.
The company announced its readiness to introduce twenty electric cars by the year 2023, it also noted that GM would “compete everywhere”, and not just in the luxury car segment.
Now some consumers are skeptical of car electrification, however, Rick Spina mentioned the advantage of electric cars, which is not often talked about. As he explained, the transition from a standard electric motor to a more powerful one is much less expensive than a similar transition with an internal combustion engine. This may mean that car owners will get more return on their money in terms of productivity.
