The 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ marks a pioneering moment for Cadillac that illuminates the brand’s future and resets the fundamental notions of luxury motoring. A beginning of a significant new era, the brand was running ahead of schedule to have customers place order reservations beginning in September 2021, with initial availability starting the first half of 2022.
“The 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ’s stunning design and artfully integrated technology combined with GM’s Ultium Platform will deliver a high-performance luxury experience unlike anything that has come before it, setting a new standard for Cadillac.” said Rory Harvey, vice president, Global Cadillac.
At launch, LYRIQ will be available with premier technologies and stirring performance capabilities enabled by the vehicle’s dedicated electric architecture. A 12-module, 100-kilowatt-hour battery pack and a rear-wheel-drive Ultium Platform deliver a Cadillac-estimated 340 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque — and a Cadillac-estimated over 300 miles of range with a full charge.
LYRIQ offers high-speed DC fast charging for public stations at 190 kW, enabling customers to add an estimated 76 miles of range in about 10 minutes of charging time. A segment-leading 19.2 kW charging module can add up to 52 miles of range per hour of charge for home charging. The EV uses regenerative braking to help maximize electric driving efficiency with its next-generation variable Regen on Demand technology, along with the convenience of One-Pedal Driving.
The interior is clean and straightforward, focusing on secondary and tertiary design elements, including intricate laser-etched patterns through wood over metal decor, which has never been done before. Customers will select from Satin Steel Metallic or Stellar Black Metallic exterior colors and Sky Cool Gray or Noir. The large, curved LED screen is the centerpiece, and all the components are incorporated artfully, blurring the lines of separation among technology, lighting and decor.
The 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ is expected to go into production in the first quarter of 2022, with pricing starting at $59,990. It will be produced at GM’s Spring Hill, Tennessee assembly facility.
