Cadillac shows off its first fully electric vehicle from the future

Share

A Cadillac electric auto is the first to ride on GM's next-generation EV platform in 2021.

The company's electric vehicle will "represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility", according to Cadillac president, Steve Carlisle.

Cadillac also showed us the interior of the electric crossover, whose design oozes futuristic cool thanks to minimalist themes and multiple digital screens. GM said its gearing up to position Cadillac as a luxury rival to the current segment leader, Tesla.

The electric Caddy is the first model derived from GM's future EV platform, as the brand readies itself for an "all-electric future".

GM says the new framework lets GM operate with a new level of flexibility, allowing the company to respond to customer needs and trends with minimal lead and development time. Cadillac says that what makes this framework different from others are the drive units and battery cells.

He said it was a "mistake" to use phrasing that "created an unnecessary controversy" and denied being racist. It is more severe than a reprimand, but not as severe as expulsion. "What Steve King said was stupid".

The name of the future of the electric vehicle has yet to be announced.

"They have done a lot to popularize electric vehicles and get in the minds of consumers", he said.

President said: "we don't have any chances left with taking Cadillac to a really new place".

The potential Tesla Model X competitor doesn't yet have a name, nor do we know any of the key specifications including range, price or performance.

In a shocking turn of events (pun intended), Cadillac revealed the design of its first electric vehicle during Sunday night's preview showing of the new 2020 XT6 crossover SUV, whose formal debut took place Monday at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
