Cadillac is becoming electric and the brand has announced that the 2023 Lyriq will start at $ 62,990 when the order opens on May 19th.
Deliveries are set to begin this fall, just months after the lyrical debut version. The special edition sold out within minutes and reached customers this summer. While waiting in front of the buyers, they will find two new exterior colors known as Apulent Blue Metallic and Crystal White Tricot.

As a refresher, the Lyriq has a 100 kWh battery pack, as well as a rear-mounted electric motor that produces 340 hp (254 kW / 345 PS) and 325 lb-ft (440 Nm) of torque. This setup gives the crossover an EPA-estimated range of 312 miles (502 km) on a single charge.
Although the Lyric will initially be offered with rear-wheel drive, an all-wheel drive variant will arrive in early 2023 with a base price of $ 64,990. Cadillac will release additional details near the launch, but the company has previously stated that the model will have two electric motors that will produce a combined output of about 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS). The all-wheel drive lyric will be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds (1,588 kg).
Customers can opt for free public charging or a $ 1,500 home installation credit
To give customers a “seamless charging experience”, customers will have the option of two years unlimited public charging power at EVgo stations or a credit of up to $ 1,500 which can be used to install a home charger via Qmerit. It can be applied to a qualified professional installation of a Level 2 charger or a 240-volt outlet in the owner’s home.
The latter is probably a better option and will offer Cadillac 11.5 and 19.2 kW home chargers. Although the crossover comes standard with a dual-level charge cord that enables customers to charge their lyrics from both 120- and 240-volt outlets, Cadillac noted that installing a 240-volt outlet or wall charger “takes time to make a charge”. Reduces battery life from 3 days to overnight. “
Specifically, the 19.2 kW charger can provide a range of 52 miles (84 km) for each hour of charging. The crossover also supports 190 kW DC fast chargers and they can deliver a range of about 76 miles (122 km) in about 10 minutes.
