Cadillac’s electric revolution will begin next month as the brand will begin taking orders for the Lyriq crossover on Sept. 18.

Potential buyers will be able to make online reservations for Cadillac’s first production all-electric model, which is also the brand’s first model to use the new GM Ultium platform.

Interestingly, the automaker is announcing a starting price of $58,795 (excluding shipping and other fees), slightly below the previously announced recommended retail price of $59,990 (also excluding shipping and other fees)

This is impressive considering that the Lyriq will be equipped with a 100 kW⋅h battery pack, which is expected to provide a range of more than 300 miles (483 km). Admittedly, it will be a rear-wheel drive model at launch, while future versions will be offered with an all-wheel drive option. The single electric motor produces 255 kW/340 hp and 440 N⋅m of torque.

Cadillac says it will offer 190 kW of high-speed constant current fast charging, which means 10 minutes of charging will increase range by 122 km. After 30 minutes, drivers can expect a range of 314 km. For home charging, the Lyriq will offer a 19.2 kW AC on-board charger that can increase range to 84 km per hour of charging.

The LYRIQ interior is clean and simple with a focus on secondary and tertiary design elements. 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 distinctive black crystal grille is one of the LYRIQ’s most unique and expressive design elements. It is also a dynamic feature, as it is part of a dramatic lighting choreography that greets the owner upon approach.

Cadillac doesn’t disclose full equipment details, but the crossover will come standard with 20-inch wheels and Satin Steel Metallic or Stellar Black Metallic body colors. Other highlights include LED headlights and a massive 33-inch display.

Specific Cadillac knurling is etched on all LYRIQ components, emphasizing the idea of high design, even in the smallest of areas.

The all-electric luxury crossover will be available in the first half of 2022. Cadillac plans to begin production at its Spring Hill, Tennessee, assembly plant in the first quarter of 2022.

LYRIQ offers high-speed DC fast charging at 190 kW, enabling customers to add an estimated 76 miles of range in only 10 minutes. When charging at home, LYRIQ can charge at the fastest speeds currently allowed by industry standards, when equipped with an optional Level 2 19 kW charge module, which allows for up to 52 miles of range per charging hour.
