Cadillac’s First Electric Vehicle Will Debut In About A Year From Now



General Motors has lots to say about electric vehicles, but it’s starting
feel like all talk and no action.

That’s going to change sooner than most people think, as GM’s vice president
of electric and autonomous vehicle programs, Rick Spina, has suggested
Cadillac’s first electric vehicle will debut “a little more than a year from
now” during an interview with The Detroit Bureau.

Spina didn’t say much about the model, but the electric crossover was
previewed at the North American International Auto Show earlier this year.
The company hasn’t divulged details, but the crossover will ride on a newly
developed modular platform that was designed specifically for electric
vehicles ...

Like Volkswagen’s MEB platform, the architecture will underpin an assortment
of vehicles in varying shapes and sizes. It will also support front-, rear-
and all-wheel drive setups.

Much remains unknown, but Cadillac President Steve Carlisle has previously
said the model will “hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the
needs of customers around the world.” He also stated the vehicle will

products in the next three to seven years will be electric vehicles.” He
went on to reveal the company is “on track” to introduce 20 EVs by 2023, and
noted GM will “compete everywhere” and not just in the luxury segment.

GM CEO Mary Barra recently confirmed an electric pickup will be launched in
late 2021. It could be badged as a Hummer, and reports have suggested it
could be followed by a Hummer SUV in 2023 as well as electric GMC pickup
that same year.

Back in 2017, GM revealed a road map which called for at least 11 new
electric vehicles. It included small, compact and large crossovers as well
as a “low roof car” and a “lux low roof” model that appeared to be a coupe.

While some consumers remain skeptical about EVs, Spina mentioned an
interesting benefit that isn’t often talked about. As he explained, it’s
less expensive to go from a ‘base’ electric motor to a more powerful one
than it is making a similar leap using internal combustion engines. This
could mean drivers will get more bang for their buck in terms of
