General Motors positions Cadillac as a pioneer of a new era of all-electric vehicle development. The American auto giant will launch and expand electrified technologies across the lineup of this old luxury brand. A Cadillac electric car is the first to ride on GM’s next-generation EV platform in 2021.
We don’t know the name of the first pure electric Cadillac for the moment. It will be detailed closer to its official debut.
Meanwhile, at the 2019 NAIAS taking place in Detroit these days, the company is revealing the all-new XT6 and announcing a future Escalade as well as an upcoming performance sedan.
Cadillac is going to introduce new models roughly once a half year through 2021.
GM’s future EV platform, which Cadillac is the first to utilize, will be flexible, with a relatively short design and development lead time.
The most advanced components within this architecture are the drive units and adjustable batteries designed for maximum usability throughout General Motors range in different countries. The Cadillac electric vehicles will be configured in front-, rear- or all-wheel drive.
Currently there is only one green model in the brand’s lineup – the Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid, which costs from $75,000 in the U.S.
