Cadillac EV sedan.
Cadillac has unveiled 3 new EVs in 2023, as they said they would. The Escalade IQ, the Vistiq and the smaller Optiq. Except for the Escalade IQ, we don’t know much about the other two as only a couple of photos of each have been released. We will know more this year.
That could mean no new Cadillac model for a while. I think they need a large EV sedan. Something that looks like what is expected of a Cadillac, and something that doesn’t cost $340,000 like the Celestiq. It wouldn’t be alone. A large very luxurious Cadillac sedan EV priced at around $ 100,000 could compete with many models like the Lucid Air, Mercedes EQS, BMW i7, and the upcoming Audi A8 EV replacement. It seems everyone is present in that segment except GM. (Where is Lincoln by the way?)
A new large Cadillac sedan would have to impress without being a weirdo like the Celestiq. And it would have to look expensive, unlike the EQS. A very modern interior could still include retro touches and wood. (Maybe a bit too much on the illustration above)
There was a rumor about Cadillac introducing 2 new EV sedans a few months ago. Both would be based on the revised version of the recurrent Ultium platform called BEV3. The larger model is rumored to be about the size of the former Cadillac CT6 sedan. The smaller one would compete against the Mercedes EQE sedan, the new BMW i5, and the Genesis G80 EV. And probably a few more by the time it comes out, like a smaller Lucid sedan.
New Cadillac sedans are always good news in my book. I can’t wait…
