We finally have a bit of an update from General Motors (GM) on the Cadillac Lyriq. In a post on LinkedIn of all places, Marc Reuss announced that the Cadillac Lyriq EV would begin deliveries within the next few months.
His post noted that the Lyriq’s launch is ahead of schedule.
In addition, he announced that the first Lyriq rolled off the Spring Hill production line last week.
The Lyriq has had a cloud of uncertainty around it since its announcement in August 2020.
GM wanted to unveil the vehicle at the Montreal Auto Show, but show organizers cancelled the show due to COVID-19.
However, since, then we have not seen much in the way of an update.
We knew that GM was producing the Lyriq at its Spring Hill plant, but that plant needed to be re-tooled and workers re-trained on producing EVs. However, it looks like things are going well.
The Lyriq was the first Cadillac EV announced and will be followed by an entire lineup of all EV models, including the EV version of the Escalade, the Celestiq. ￼
The Cadillac line is part of a broader initiative by GM to electrify its lineup.
The company hopes to launch 30 EV models by 2025, with 20 available in the North American lineup.
