It comes on the heels of a massive EV investment
Upon the ashes of the old Saturn plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee, GM is building a $2.3 billion battery factory. Their new Ultium batteries are double-stacked to offer big power in the Hummer EV, and now they can be found in the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq. For $59,990 you will have 100 kWh, 340 horsepower, 325 lb-ft of torque, and a range of over 300 miles. It looks a tad more classy than Kim Kardashian’s Escalade because GM has been working on this project for nearly a decade.
Should you need a quick charge, 30 minutes will add 195 miles to the ticker, which should be enough to run a few errands after work. The brakes are massive, with 18″ rotors on the rear axle. These are bigger than the wheels on my Cadillac CTS-V, so I see an upgrade in my future. GM is going all-in on EVs, so get ready for the Corvette E-Ray to drop in the coming weeks, and stay with us for all your Cadillac news.
