Cadillac released photos of the company’ very first electric vehicle on Sunday, at an off-site event that took place before the Detroit Auto Show. The vehicle is expected, reportedly, to prove itself a worthy competitor against Tesla.
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.
There’s barely any details about the car itself but Cadillac assured everyone that they all will be revealed in time, closer to the vehicle’s launch. All we know now is that its architecture will not be based on the electric architecture we can find on General Motors’ Chevrolet models.
Cadillac will be developing a new battery electric architecture from scratch and its system will be adjusted according to to every vehicle and customer requirements.
According to General Motors, the Cadillac electric vehicle will be the foundation on which General Motors will build all of its future all-wheel, front and rear-wheel drive vehicles, spanning across the company’s four brands.
Cadillac has also revealed an XT6 crossover car and has been hinting it will be releasing a future Escalade as well as a performance sedan in the near future. The company is planning to release a new vehicle every six months through 2021.
