Cadillac reveals first electric model ahead of Detroit show

Cadillac’s first production EV will be a crossover-style model using the new bespoke General Motors electric platform

Cadillac has revealed the first images of its first electric model ahead of the Detroit motor show opening its doors.

The new crossover model, as-yet-unnamed but thought to be dubbed BEV3 by engineers, is the first vehicle built on General Motors’ bespoke EV platform, designed to accommodate various body styles and front, rear and all-wheel drive powertrains. 

Technical details are thin on the ground, suggesting the new model is still some way off production. It’s expected that the production version will feature all-wheel drive given the segment it’s entering, but we’ve had no indication of the Jaguar iPace rival’s power output. 

Cadillac hasn’t made it clear if a concept version of the new EV will actually be on the stands at Detroit next to its production model debut – the new XT6 SUV. But given it’s GM’s home motor show, it’s expected to make an appearance in some form or another.

Steve Carlisle, president of Cadillac, claims the new EV will “hit at the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world. It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility.”
