Cadillac LYRIQ: Poetry in Motion
The LYRIQ will be Cadillac’s first foray into the all-electric circuit. The vehicle will come with an electric motor on the rear axle for the standard rear-wheel drive model and a second motor in the front for the all-wheel drive version.
Performance has always been part of Cadillac’s DNA, and this model is no exception. In fact, the new Ultium propulsion system will take that performance to the next level.
It gives the LYRIQ a near-50/50 weight distribution, plus a lower center of gravity. Overall, you’ll have a ride that’s sporty and highly responsive when you want it most.
Furthermore, this automobile will take you where you want to go without having to stop along the way. That’s because it’s expected to have a 300-mile range. Plus, you’ll have a couple ways to charge the car:
- At-home Level 2 (AC) charge rates up to 19kW
- Public DC fast-charging rates up to 150kW
Charge overnight or on the go and drive as long as you’d like.
An Exterior That Energizes the Senses
With the Cadillac LYRIQ being the brand’s first electric SUV, it needs to make a bold statement. It certainly succeeds in that department.
Taut lines and clean surfaces surround the vehicle. Then there’s the low, fast roofline and wide stance that emphasize the car’s agility. Up front, you’ll find a “black crystal” grille. What makes this grille extra special is that it’s part of a dramatic lighting choreography—it will light up and greet you as you approach the vehicle.
On the side, you’ll find 23-inch wheels. Look closely, and you’ll find the Cadillac symbol in a Juniper-tinted matte finish. It’s a nod to the interior color palette and shows how much care went into designing this SUV.
We find that Juniper finish inside the LYRIQ in the leather seating surfaces. Moon Glow aluminum accents adorn the dash, and the driver-centric curved LED display keeps every control within easy reach. These are just some of the ways this Cadillac model is ahead of its time.
Futuristic technologies are found within the vehicle, too, such as:
- Augmented reality head-up display: Two planes provide essential information—a near one with speed and directions and a far one for navigation signals and safety alerts.
- AKG Studio 19-speaker sound system: This Cadillac-exclusive audio system provides precise sound with speakers throughout the cabin for sound optimization.
- Super Cruise™: This fully hands-free driver-assisting technology lets you cruise along while the car steers on its own.
Thanks to these features and plenty of other amenities/technologies, you may never want to get out of the Cadillac LYRIQ.
