Cadillac opened online orders for the Lyriq electric SUV on May 19, 2022. Surprisingly, it turned out that the quota for the Lyriq sold out immediately within minutes of the announcement of the online reservation.
Cadillac Lyriq is one of the waiting list of the many electric vehicles that will slide. Other cars that consumers are waiting for include the Tesla Cybertruck, Lotus Eletre, RAM 1500 Pick-up, Volvo XC60, Audi A6 e-Tron, and Chevrolet Silverado EV.
The new Cadillac Lyriq will ship to consumers in the fall of 2022, or around October this year.
The US premium car manufacturer quickly announced that the 2023 model was fully-booked. A note on the official website, “Pre-order Lyriq 2023 is now full”.
Prospective customers who want Lyriq can expect some customers who have booked to cancel taking their orders. So Cadillac kept them in the reserve candidates. If the 2023 model is no longer available, it will be a priority to get the 2024 model.
The Cadillac Lyriq has a base price of $62,990. That’s certainly quite affordable for an electric car from a premium brand in the United States. Especially if you look at the look of Lyriq which is very futuristic and seductive to the eye.
The Cadillac Lyriq is equipped with a 100 kWh battery to power a single electric motor at the rear wheels, which is capable of delivering 340 hp (345 PS) of power and 440 Nm of instant torque.
The sizeable battery is claimed to provide a range of up to 502 km (312 miles) from a full battery state, based on EPA estimates.
An All Wheel Drive variant is also provided with two electric motors with a combined power of up to 500 HP (507 PS), so that this electric crossover is claimed to be able to pull an additional load of up to 1,588 kg.
