On top of featuring GM’s Super Cruise advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), the LYRIQ SUV crossover will also come equipped with a 12-module, 100-kilowatt-hour battery pack, DC fast-charging at 190 kW, GM’s Variable Regen-on-Demand regenerative braking, a 33-inch-diagonal LED display, and an AKG 19-speaker audio system, among a number of features.
Jamie Brewer, LYRIQ chief engineer said, “Thanks to the modular and highly flexible Ultium Platform that powers LYRIQ, along with advanced virtual development tools, Cadillac has been able to accelerate development and put more real-world miles on prototypes sooner than expected.”
Brewer continued, “It’s exciting to see our objectives realized on the road — and it means we are on track to bring this pioneering electric luxury vehicle to customers nine months earlier than originally planned.”
GM and LG Chem recently announced plans to construct a second electric vehicle (EV) plant in Tennessee, while it currently works to finish the first of its joint venture factories in Lordstown, Ohio. Eventually, the Cadillac LYRIQ will be produced at the company’s Tennessee plant, upon completion.
