Cadillac has stepped into the EV world with their first fully-electric SUV

The Cadillac LYRIQ SUV is breaking new ground as the first fully-electric vehicle from the Cadillac brand. It provides dynamic styling and a contemporary, comfortable cabin. The Cadillac LYRIQ will offer both single-motor rear-wheel drive and dual-motor all-wheel drive models, with the single-motor version giving you up to 312 miles of range with every charge.

The new LYRIQ has been designed with GM's new scalable battery architecture which allows you to do DC fast charging as well as using standard in-home connections. Here's an overview of the new Cadillac LYRIQ we're currently offering for pre-ordering with Jim Shorkey Cadillac in Gainesville, GA.

EV motor and performance

The new Cadillac LYRIQ comes standard with rear-wheel drive and a 340-horsepower electric motor on the rear axle. The rear-wheel drive model can go from zero to 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds, which is a good number for the mid-size SUV category. It can hit the quarter-mile mark in 14.2 seconds and reach 100 mph. The 500-horsepower Dual Motor all-wheel drive powertrain is an available alternative and adds a second motor to drive the front wheels.

Fuel economy

According to the EPA, the rear-wheel drive LYRIQ is good for a 92 MPG-equivalent mileage in the city and 82 MPG-equivalent on the highway.

Range and charging time

With the new LYRIQ, GM is launching a new line of EV battery technology called Ultium. It allows the carmaker to produce batteries that range in size from 50 kilowatts all the way up to 200 kilowatts. The LYRIQ's battery gives you 102 kilowatts' worth of capacity and provides an estimated driving range of up to 312 miles per charge in the single-motor version. That's quite a bit off the pace of the average American gas-powered car at 413 miles but it's not bad for an electric vehicle. If you get a big 220-volt outlet installed in your garage, you can fully-charge the new Cadillac LYRIQ in anywhere from 7 to 14 hours depending on the power supply.

Trim levels

The new Cadillac LYRIQ comes with just three trims:

  • Debut Edition
  • Single Motor RWD
  • Dual Motor AWD

With the Cadillac LYRIQ's base price at such an attractive level, we recommend going with the top-tier Dual Motor AWD trim with a 500-horsepower engine and a 3500-pound towing capacity.

Exterior commentary

One MotorTrend editor liked the long-nose profile that harkens back to the classic Cadillac silhouette. He also appreciated the vertical tail light elements that come off like a "shutdown light show." A former design chief from Ford said simply that he thinks the Cadillac LYRIQ is "the best-looking car out there."

Interior comfort and cargo

The new Cadillac LYRIQ comes with an upscale flair thanks to its handsome interior. There's open-pore wood trim on the door panels and bright blue leather upholstery lining the large storage tray on the floor between the driver and the front passenger. The new LYRIQ has a quiet cabin due to the absence of a gasoline engine and it also uses advanced noise cancellation technology to minimize road noise. The new LYRIQ gives you 28 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats and 60.8 cubic feet when you fold those seats down.
