Cadillac Lyriq

The Cadillac Lyriq is an electric mid-size luxury crossover SUV manufactured and marketed by the Cadillac subdivision of General Motors. As Cadillac's first fully electric vehicle, and the first GM production vehicle using the BEV3 platform, the Lyriq introduces a new version of GM's Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system.

Assembled at Spring Hill Manufacturing in Spring Hill, Tennessee for North America and at a new EV-only plant in Yantai, China for Asia, Cadillac started accepting customer orders for the 2023 Lyriq in the United States in May 2022.

History

At the 2019 North American International Auto Show, CEO Mary Barra presented several details about the group's upcoming series of EVs, which included a crossover from Cadillac. The name Lyriq follows a pattern of several prior Cadillac concept vehicles, including the Evoq, Provoq, and Celestiq, all ending in "q".

Cadillac originally planned for a US-market presentation of the Lyriq (as a "show car" or concept car) on April 2, 2020, followed by a launch soon thereafter for the 2021 model year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was postponed to August 6. Production of the Lyriq was also delayed to early 2022. Chinese and Asian market production at a new plant at Shanghai GM's Yantai complex built for Ultium will start slightly before Spring Hill starts Lyriq assembly for North America.

Following the public debut of the Lyriq show car at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show, the production version was presented on April 21, 2021.

Batteries for both Yantai and Spring Hill production will be sourced from LG Chem, with Spring Hill initially getting pouch-type Ultium cells from an LG Chem plant in South Korea. This will be done until GM and LG Chem expand Spring Hill to accommodate Ultium battery production for both domestic use and exports to Mexico. According to Cadillac, all the interior components were newly designed for the Lyriq and no pre-existing GM parts were used.

The Lyriq was first delivered to American dealerships in the highest demand markets of New York, Los Angeles, and Detroit in the first week of July 2022. GM delivered a total of 122 Lyriqs to U.S. customers in 2022.

On November 15, 2023, Cadillac confirmed it will launch the Lyriq in Australia in late 2024.

Specifications

Powertrain

At debut, the Cadillac Lyriq is offered with a single motor driving the rear wheels. All-wheel drive is expected to follow in 2023. The single motor generates 340 hp (254 kW; 345 PS) and 325 lb⋅ft (441 N⋅m; 45 kg⋅m) torque, while the all-wheel drive, dual motor version has an estimated combined output of 500 hp (370 kW; 510 PS) and 450 lb⋅ft (610 N⋅m).

It draws from a 100 kWh (360 MJ) battery with an estimated 300-mile (480 km) range. The battery supports Level 2 and DC fast charging. As tested, the battery had slightly higher capacity (102 kWh) and over a 350 mi (560 km) winter road trip, average observed efficiency was 2.7 mi/kWh, or 91 mpg‑e. Under the EPA driving cycle, the rated range is 312 mi (502 km) with a combined (city/highway) fuel consumption rating of 89 mpg‑e (38 kW⋅h/100 mi). The maximum charging rate is 190 kW using a DC fast charger, or 19.2 kW using AC.
