this will be the future electric crossover of the brand

Cadillac unveiled the Lyriq show car, a harbinger of the American brand’s first all-electric crossover in development. The model is characterized by a strict exterior design with a low and sloping roofline, because of which the SUV can even be called “coupe-like”.

The front of the Cadillac Lyric Concept features vertical stripe headlights and a Black Crystal radiator grille with multiple light patterns. As for the stern, here the attention is drawn to the angular bumper and lights, which, again, are made in the form of vertical stripes.

The main feature of the Cadillac Lyric’s interior is a 33-inch full-width LED display. Here he plays the role of both a virtual device and a multimedia system. The company proudly notes that this display has the highest pixel density in the automotive industry.

The latter can also display over a billion colors, 64 times more than other brands of machines. Plus, one cannot fail to note the two-part projection display with augmented reality effect, on the lower part of which information about the speed and direction of movement is displayed, and the upper part is used to display various alerts and signals.

The active noise cancellation system, which uses a variety of sensors and microphones, is designed to please passengers. With its help, it will be possible, for example, to “cut off” the rustle of tires, making the stay in the cabin as comfortable as possible.

The Cadillac Lyriq is built on a new modular EV platform and is similar in size to the XT5, which measures 4,813mm in length. The vehicle is reported to have received an Ultium electric powertrain. The automaker does not cover the latter, but it is known that the car will be offered on the market in both front- and all-wheel drive versions.

An all-terrain vehicle with a 100 kWh battery will be able to travel more than 482 km without recharging, while the battery can be recharged from a 150-kilowatt “superfast” station. It is known that Lyric is equipped with the latest NCMA-batteries based on nickel, cobalt, manganese and aluminum cathodes.

The content of rare cobalt in such batteries is about 70% less (compared to other batteries of the GM concern). A proprietary Super Cruise system is announced for the luxury electric crossover. The latter is an autopilot that allows the driver to take their hands off the steering wheel.

The Americans promise to start production of the serial version of the Cadillac Lyric in 2022, and the commercial version will repeat the presented show car by 80-85%. The developers note that due to the “attractive” price, the car will be able to compete not only with similar electric cars, but also with classmate crossovers with traditional internal combustion engines. However, the cost of the off-road vehicle has not yet been advertised.
