Cadillac just revealed the design of its first EV

2020 Cadillac XT6

On the heels of its announcement of the 2020 XT6 three-row crossover with 3.6L V-6 engine with cylinder deactivation and nine-speed automatic transmission, Cadillac revealed the brand's first EV at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

"Cadillac's EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world", he said.

The premium brand will be the first to use the platform, helping Cadillac catch up with to the likes of Audi's e-tron and the Jaguar I-Pace which are already in production. GM said its gearing up to position Cadillac as a luxury rival to the current segment leader, Tesla.

General Motors had very recently announced that it would be turning its Cadillac brand as its "lead electric vehicle brand", as the playground for electric cars has further leveled. A company press release said the new automobile reflects GM's move toward all-electric vehicles in the future.

The platform allows the carmaker to respond to changing market demand and have responded with relatively short design and development lead time.

That would be an all-new, fully electric vehicle for Cadillac.

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.

Cadillac did not disclose a name, price, or release date for the electric auto.

The EV will be on a new, flexible platform, according to Cadillac, that will underpin all manner of front-, rear- and all-wheel drive vehicles. Its most critical components - including the battery cells - are being designed for maximum usability across all programs.
