General Motors’s pre-production version of electric SUV Cadillac Lyriq have been assembled and the final production version is expected to be delivered to customers in a few months, President Mark Reuss said in a LinkedIn post on Thursday.
“Our teams have worked tirelessly on the Lyriq, bringing the launch up nine months ahead of schedule,” Reuss said.
Lyriq, an all-electric mid-size SUV, was unveiled by GM in August 2020 in a move to transform its traditional combustion engine lineup to an electric one.
GM’s Cadillac will offer the Lyriq, Symboliq, Celestiq, Escalade EV as well as a compact SUV by 2025.
Separately, the automaker halted production of its EV model Chevrolet Bolt in August after a major battery recall and recently extended the halt to late February.
The company is considering investing more than $4 billion (roughly Rs. 29,805 crore) in two Michigan plants to boost its electric vehicle production capacity, according to sources and documents made public in December.
