2023 Cadillac Lyriq: The Future of Electric Vehicles?

October 13th, 2021 by
The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq has raised the bar for electric vehicles. Discover the new Cadillac and what we can expect from electric vehicles in the future.

Electric vehicles will make up 70% of all new car sales by 2040. GM will contribute to this by going fully electric by 2035. They are showing their commitment to this pledge with their new electric line-up.

The first one to come through is the all-new, all-electric, 2023 Cadillac Lyriq. This car is not only the first step in GM’s electric future, but will also set the new standard for electric luxury vehicles in the future.

A New EV Battery

GM is utilizing cutting-edge technology and engineering in its battery design. The Lyriq will feature GM’s new Ultium battery. This battery is a game changer for future electric vehicles. The new battery structure it offers is crucial for GM to meet its 2035 goal. The Ultium battery was developed for both form and function.

Its optimal design wastes less space in the vehicle. It’s flexible and stackable in both horizontal and vertical positions. The Ultium battery is also made from ethically sourced raw materials.

But its innovation doesn’t end at its design. The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Ultium battery will have fast-charging capability. This is perfect for those quick charging stops on a long trip. Drivers will also be able to charge the Lyriq from home power outlets as well, if needed. Of course, this method of charging will be the slowest, but having it as an option offers ease and peace of mind should there be an emergency.

Speaking of peace of mind, the Lyriq is also setting the bar for EV range. While the majority of electric vehicles out on the market today have a battery range of about 200 miles, the Cadillac Lyriq offers an estimated 300 miles of range. There will be no need for range anxiety with this car.

Cadillac always brings innovation, detail, and luxury to their cars. And it’s no different with the Lyriq. This is one of the many reasons people love the Cadillac brand.

2023 Cadillac Lyriq: An Uncompromising SUV

The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq offers drivers a choice in the drivetrain. The standard Lyriq will come with a single-motor rear-wheel drive. But, a dual-motor all-wheel-drive drivetrain is optional. This gives drivers the freedom to choose a drivetrain that works best for them. This optional all-wheel-drive drivetrain is an increasing trend for automakers and one that Cadillac has already implemented.

The Lyriq is also setting new norms for electric cars. It comes standard with bigger 22-inch wheels, a breathtaking 33-inch curved seamless LED display, and a spacious cabin for all. Those in the backseat will also feel like they are riding in luxury and style with the ample legroom the Lyriq provides.

Cadillac calls the Lyriq “an uncompromising electric SUV“, and they definitely meant it. With their own unique styling, this SUV breaks free from any existing SUV mold out on the road.

The Cadillac Lyriq SUV is not a big and tall giant towering over other vehicles. Instead, the Lyriq opted for a low to the ground vehicle with a long body. It’s a car that can’t be ignored. It’s innovative design stands out from the crowd.

The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq also features GM’s new Super Cruise technology. This gives the car semi-autonomous driving capability on compatible roads in both the United States and Canada. The Lyriq has lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, as well as automatic emergency braking. This braking system relies on cameras and sensors to detect pedestrians as well.

Interior for the Future

Most electric car brands are investing in designing modern interiors for their vehicles. The Cadillac Lyriq however, not only has a modern interior, but also brings its occupants into the future with it.

The massive 33-inch curved advanced LED display is seamless. It starts from the panel behind the steering wheel to the infotainment screen in the center. This provides an undisturbed user experience as there are no breaks between them.

This display is a product of Cadillac’s partnership with Rightpoint and Territory Studio. Territory Studio is a digital design company that’s worked on movies like The Martian, Ready Player One, and the Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy. Its impressive resume doesn’t end there as they also worked on popular video games like Need for Speed Heat, and Forza Motorsport 6.

This partnership helps to change the driving experience entirely. Driving is no longer something we simply have to do but instead, something we can enjoy.. Drivers can escape the tedium of their daily commute with the Cadillace Lyriq.

With Active Noise Cancellation, the Lyriq tunes out road noises and suspension sounds. This system combined with floor lights, massaging seats, AKG studio audio system with 19 speakers, and headrest speakers make for a truly luxurious eco-friendly transport.
