The Cadillac Lyriq promised to have pricing that would reflect its status as the brand’s first-ever EV offering and in an announcement that was released early this morning, Cadillac delivered the goods confirming Lyriq pricing and other details
Lyriq Will Not Bust Your Wallet
A notable detail here is pricing with a base RWD Lyriq starting at $62,990 which is $3,000 more than what the Debut Edition asked for when those models were announced. However, buyers will have a bigger supply pool of models and the standard model will still deliver 312 miles of driving range between charges. In addition to the sleek SUV itself, Cadillac also aims to make embracing the EV lifestyle easier thanks to the choice of either a $1,500 rebate to cover the installation of a Level 2 charging system in their home or two years of credits which can be used at public charging stations.
“These are important steps for Cadillac as we make good our promise to deliver an EV offering more than 300 miles of range and move toward an all-electric portfolio by 2030/” revealed Cadillac Global Vice President Rory Harvey. “Cadillac will define the future of luxury transportation through its range of forthcoming EVs, and it all begins with the Lyriq.”
This latest development follows a recent stream of updates which also confirmed some of the performance numbers that would define the uplevel performance-focused all-wheel-drive variant. However, we now get the pricing information to help gel it all together, with the all-wheel-drive version starting at a slightly higher $64,990. Range numbers have not been released yet but look for that figure to be slightly lower than the rear-wheel drive version.
Lyriq Also Celebrates Partnership
The charging plans that Cadillac was able to offer are the result of an all-new partnership that the brand recently entered into with the EVgo charging network which has been undertaking the task of rapidly expanding its charging network over the past few years. This partnership follows on the heels of some other recent partnerships that we have seen in the industry and is the latest attempt at trying to make the ownership experience a smoother one for EV adopters while also reducing range anxiety among other buyers that might want to go for an electric vehicle but may have concerns about range anxiety.
Both of these perks will also be available to Debut Edition owners which were initially not given the perks last year when the Debut Edition went through its very limited production run. “This unique offer will elevate our customers experience with the Lyriq, helping them make a smooth more transparent transition to all-electric driving.”
As mentioned in the past, ordering for the Cadillac Lyriq is set to open up on May 19th with Cadillac reps anticipating strong demand and equally brisk sales for the model as a whole. The next EV will most likely be the Celstiq lultra-luxury halo model before the lineup fleshes out as EVs make there way to other segments including the slices of the market where the XT4 and the XT6 compete.
With how difficult it is to buy your perfect new electric car locally, you may need to purchase your new Cadillac from a dealership that isn’t in your area.
