GM unveiled the production version of the Cadillac Lyriq, its first all-electric vehicle as the automaker confirmed that every new Cadillac vehicle will be all-electric starting now. Cadillac brand should be all-electric a little bit ahead of the rest of General Motors target of electric only by 2035.

GM LYriQ

Tuesday GM held a virtual unveiling of the "THE CADILLAC OF EVs" LYRIQ. Available to reserve in September of 2021 From: $58,795†

"This is the spark. The dawn of a bright new era. Our electric future, rooted in more than a century of innovation, begins with an uncompromising electric SUV. Meet the Cadillac LYRIQ. An EV that inspires its driver to charge forward to a greater purpose—with every sublime detail. Prepare yourself for our newest creation."

The initial availability is in the first half of 2022. GM also said that it plans to move the brand into only releasing electric vehicles. Rory Harvey, head of Cadillac, said that from now on, the brand will only unveil all-electric vehicles.  However the brand’s lineup of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles is fairly fresh, and therefore, they plan to keep selling more gas-powered cars for the foreseeable future.

Harvey expects that Cadillac will not be selling any ICE vehicles by the end of the decade: “We will be leaving this decade as an EV brand, as things stand today, which means we will not be selling ICE vehicles by 2030.”

Therefore, the Cadillac brand should be all-electric a little bit ahead of the rest of General Motors, which recently announced the aspiration to be electric-only by 2035. GM's ad says "Driving the 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ includes so much more than leaving gas behind. LYRIQ offers available Super Cruise,† the first true hands-free driver assistance technology for compatible roads. And with an ever-growing network, you can travel on over 200,000 miles of compatible roads throughout the U.S. and Canada." The Cadillac Lyriq is going into production early next year, and it will be followed by the Celestiq, which GM has been teasing over the last year.

Electric Hummer

GM is also bringing back Hummer as an all-electric sub-brand of GMC, starting with a new pickup truck and an SUV to follow shortly after with Super Cruise†, HUMMER EV with driver-assistance technology for hands-free driving and automatic lane changing works on more than 200,000 miles of compatible roads and growing. Gm says the world is now the home of two revolutionary all-electric supertrucks—the HUMMER EV Pickup and the HUMMER EV SUV.
