Cadillac’s first electric car will look a lot like this
Speaking of Detroit Auto Show 2019 debuts, Cadillac’s other surprise is a glimpse at the brand’s first-ever electric car.
There is next to no technical detail available on the car, Cadillac’s first fully electric EV, but we do know it will be the first to use GM’s new EV architecture. This will allow for vehicles to be built in front, rear and all-wheel drive configurations with the battery systems tuned accordingly.
GM says this platform will offer it the flexibility needed to adapt its approach as customer feedback rolls in and shiny new EVs roll off the production line. Unsurprisingly, the first of which will be very much aimed at Cadillac’s well-heeled clientele.
“Cadillac’s EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world,” said Steve Carlisle, president of Cadillac. “It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility.”
Announced at an event at this week’s Detroit Auto Show, Cadillac says it will reveal name of the anonymous EV, along with further technical details, closer to launch.
