Cadillac is preparing a family of electric vehicles, and they will receive names from words, rather than alphanumeric designations, as in the current models of the brand. The head of Cadillac Steve Carlisle told CNET about this.
- The first Cadillac to feature an all-electric powertrain will be a three-row crossover, a prototype unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2019. More details about the serial electric crossover, built on a completely new architecture, will be told in the first quarter of next year.
- Most Cadillac models will be electric by 2030, Carlisle said. He also did not rule out the likelihood that by this time the company will start producing only electric vehicles. At the same time, unlike Mercedes-Benz, it is not yet planned to abandon the development of new internal combustion engines.
Cadillac now only has the Escalade frame SUV, with the common name. For the rest of the model line, indices are used: for sedans - CT4, CT5 and CT6, for crossovers - XT4, XT5 and XT6. The new generation Cadillac Escalade will be unveiled on February 4, 2020 at a special event in Los Angeles.
