This is Cadillac’s first fully electric car

Due out in 2022, the SUV will be one of the first purely electric models released under the Cadillac moniker.

"Cadillac's EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world", Steve Carlisle, president of Cadillac, said in a prepared statement. GM is developing an EV platform and says Cadillac will be the first brand to come onboard. GM said its gearing up to position Cadillac as a luxury rival to the current segment leader, Tesla.

After recently learning that the Cadillac luxury brand would become General Motors' "lead electric vehicle brand", we all expected to see an EV unveiled soon, just not this soon. This will be the first model based on GM's future EV platform (BEV3, earlier post).

The most advanced components within this architecture are the drive units and adjustable batteries designed for maximum usability throughout General Motors range in different countries.

Beckham said his fatherly and football instincts kicked in, and he tackled Cassidy and held him down until deputies arrived. The man, identified by police as 48-year-old Geoffrey Cassidy, suffered a black eye and broken bones in his face.

That would be an all-new, fully electric vehicle for Cadillac.

Along with the electric auto renderings, Cadillac also played a computer animation depicting its vision for a future autonomous SUV with a steering wheel that folds away into the dashboard.

With such little information shared about the upcoming EV and GM's platform, it's hard not to take the automaker's promises with a grain of salt. To stay competitive, GM's upcoming electric models will need to be affordably priced.

Cadillac also announced a new XT6 crossover and shared plans for a revised Escalade and a performance sedan.
