    2019-01-13

    Cadillac furthered its recent product blitz today with the reveal of the brand’s first EV. This will be the first model derived from GM’s future EV platform. GM announced on Friday that Cadillac will be at the vanguard of the company’s move toward an all-electric future.

    “Cadillac’s EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world,” said Steve Carlisle, president of Cadillac. “It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility.”

    The Cadillac EV’s name and additional details will be revealed closer to launch. Today’s announcement is part of Cadillac’s aggressive product acceleration announced this week — in addition to revealing the all-new XT6 crossover, the company also hinted at both a future Escalade and an upcoming performance sedan. Overall, Cadillac will introduce new models at the rate of roughly one every six months through 2021.

    GM’s future EV platform, which Cadillac will be the first to use, will be flexible, allowing the company to respond quickly to customer preferences with a relatively short design and development lead time. The Cadillac portfolio will eventually benefit from a variety of body styles that can be spun off this architecture.

    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. The EVs can be configured in front-, rear- or all-wheel drive, and the output of their battery systems will be adjustable based on vehicle and customer needs.

    One more electric Cadillac picture. I like this look. It is clean, fresh and still all Cadillac.

        They can keep any vehicle that is purely electric as far as I'm concerned, I can see our electric bills going up astronomically with all of the upgrades that will have to be employed to secure our failing grids. It's going to be interesting when the resale of their electric vehicle diminishes to nothing because they are out of warranty and need a new battery pack and electric motors rewound. That's going to be extremely pricey and I feel the vehicles are going to be worthless. Time will tell.

          Whether we MECF’s as a whole want to own/drive Cadillac electric vehicles or not (and some do as I read it), it is excting to me to see Cadillac design an exciting looking, all electric CUV. I am all for Cadillac being GM’s lead electriic brand, culminating in around the 2023 MY their bringing out a fantastic all electric mid engine sports car.

          The announcment this past Friday that Cadillac would be GM lead electric division, allows Chevy Corvette continue as a combustion engine alternative, and later even the C8 having additionally a hybrid option, e.g., ZORA with electric motors driving its front wheels.

          Seeing Cadillac come out with tonight CUV all electric is all good news as far as we traditional Corvette V8 lovers are concerned. I am also happy for those in our MECF community (and those who are not), who will want to own their good lucking Cadillac CUV.

          I am smiling at tonight’s Cadillac news, and again at what we learned on Friday from Mary Barra.

            I believe most charging for 300 mile ev s will be done in the evenings. The 20 minute 50 or 80 percent recharge story we are hearing from german manufacturers I believe will revolutionize the automotive lamdscape.

            78 percent of all americans drive 38 miles a day...or something like that..its been so long I forgot the exact miles ..

            i believe cadillacs best chance to finally meet the expectations of beating bmw lie in beating tesla..

            t3sla has kicked the german luxury makers butts.

            at least cadillac or rather gm is smart enough to change their target from bmw to tesla...

            thats a good start...

            i am a previous cadillac owner but they annoyed me with their previous presidents statment that raising the prices by 8 grand or more per model would create exclusivity the brand managers were looking for ..

            so basically the previous presidnt stated outloud he was going to try and ripe off customers to try and create exclusivity..

            sorry but thats not a club I wanted to join...and neither did most other previous cadillac owners..

            we left the brand in droves...

            the german brands for the kost oart have a value package lease leader that they do most of their volume in through distributors...and they sell retail to all the dopes who go to the deale network...

            thats my opinion... cadillac couldnt compete because the cadillac value lackage looked like a cheap rental car in value oackage trim...

            hopefully with the ev revolution gm will get the marketing value package right this time...

            lease ev s makes the most sense for the next few years....

            let the technology prove out longer term..

            Makes the most sense..

            ride sharing second teir preowned leasing should allow cadillac to compete on residuals.

                  It looks like VW also has plans for EVs... What, no more diesels?

                  DETROIT (Reuters) - Volkswagen AG said on Monday it is investing $800 million to build a new electric vehicle at its plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, as it shifts toward zero emission vehicles.

                  The German automaker, in an announcement at the Detroit Auto Show, said it is adding 1,000 new jobs and electric vehicle production in Tennessee will begin in 2022. German automakers have been under pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump to increase their investments in the United States.

                  "We obviously think electric vehicles are going to play a more and more prominent role," said Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, who took part in the announcement.

                  Volkswagen said in November it planned to assemble electric vehicles at a plant in North America, but had not decided which one.
