Cadillac also announced a new XT6 crossover and shared plans for a revised Escalade and a performance sedan. According to the company-issued report, this Cadillac EV will be based on GM's next-gen EV architecture.
"It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility", explains Cadillac president Steve Carlisle. It will also allow for a shorter development cycle.
Cadillac's electric crossover is expected to be a mid-size model created to take on the Tesla Model X and offer buyers the choice of two or three rows of seats. Carlisle said GM is using Tesla's vehicles as a benchmark while the Detroit-based automaker develops its own electric versions.
"The most advanced components within this platform are the drive units and battery cells, both of which are being designed for maximum usability throughout GM vehicle lineups in different countries", Cadillac said in a release.
