NAIAS: Cadillac gives preview of EV crossover concept

  • 2020 Cadillac XT6

New initiatives, including the EV platform, will enable Cadillac to produce electric cars with a faster development lead time and effectively respond to customers' transportation needs in upcoming years. Carlisle said GM is using Tesla's vehicles as a benchmark while the Detroit-based automaker develops its own electric versions.

Cadillac has a goal to sell an electric SUV priced more affordably than Tesla Inc.'s Model X, which often retails for more than $100,000. A key question is whether the Cadillac name still carries enough cutting-edge cachet to attract high-tech early adopters, or whether those are even the buyers who might be looking for an electric luxury auto by 2022.

Cadillac plans on releasing roughly one new vehicle every six months, including a forthcoming new performance sedan; and a refresh of its popular Escalade SUV. However, these are mere speculations, with no official confirmation given by the company.

Cadillac also showed us the interior of the electric crossover, whose design oozes futuristic cool thanks to minimalist themes and multiple digital screens.
