We Render The Cadillac Lyriq Electric Crossover

Caddy is cooking up a slew of new all-electric offerings, with the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq electric crossover slated to be the first model out the gates. In the lead up to the Lyriq’s debut, we’ve seen a few teasers and hints as to what it might look like, but we aren’t exactly patient, so we decided to draw it up ourselves in the following exclusive rendering.

The front end is pretty much spot on, with a look that takes after the unnamed electric concept that Cadillac debuted back in January of 2019 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The look is characterized by V-shaped styling elements and long lines, both in the vertical and in the horizontal. The traditional mesh grille seen on internal combustion vehicles is gone, replaced by solid sections instead.

The Cadillac Lyriq’s lighting elements add to the look with slim accents along the hood line and in the outer corners of the bumper section. The front-facing Cadillac logo also lights up, per earlier reports from Cadillac Society.

The profile shows a coupe-like roofline that falls back into the trunk with a graceful arc. Spoiler elements were added to the upper roofline and hatch midsection, giving the Cadillac Lyriq a somewhat sporty flavor. The lower sections of the body get matte black cladding.

While we’re confident the front end is on the money with this rendering, it’s possible that the production model will get a longer greenhouse and bigger rear doors.

The Cadillac Lyriq will be offered with both two-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive, and will be roughly the same size as the Cadillac XT5 in terms of exterior dimensions

The new Cadillac Lyriq all-electric crossover was originally slated to debut in early April. However, the ongoing novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has subsequently postponed the debut, which may be moved online instead.

  1. Very reminiscent of the then groundbreaking design of the Audi Coupe (“From Bauhaouse to Your House”) circa 1980-81, cut a true Coupe as a 3-Door Liftback. There as well, FWD or the Turbo’s AWD. My favorite color remains the unseen Silver, though the Metallic Gray is what I had, still the Black will be ubiquitous, but please a Tan Interior on all three! I see not the Rose and the Copper, despite living in Arizona is just not me. The delay is understandable, the same took place in 2006-07 and possibly 2008, when Mercedes delayed the latest CLK-Cabriolet, it’s third evolution until late ’08 and then released as an E-Cabriolet. Hopefully for all, the current situation is behind us by late Summer for so many reasons and we can get back to normality. Also, hopefully this is not made in China, as that will have devastating effects on demand, as Cadillac remains a U.S. Luxury Brand!

    • Time and time again, this will be manufactured in the US for NA markets. China will more than likely get their version as well.

  3. I dig the front end but the rest of it is blah or boring. Sad to say this but with Cadillac’s track record and Johan no longer there you guys are probably spot on with the snooze-fest the rest of the design will be. An electric XT5 with an aggressive new Cadillac design language front end (apply this to the full line) will NOT save Cadillac.

    • Cadillac continues to cheapen their cars, and even the almighty Escalade can’t afford to have Bose anymore. Instead they are going with a throw-away Samsung earbud brand, AKC or something. Looks like the GM beancounters won again, no wonder why sales continue to tank.

      • Yeah, you don’t know what you’re talking about.

        Go ahead and do some research on AKG. Once you have learned the ills of your ways thoughts, then go sit quietly in a corner as you bang your head against the wall as a form of self-punishment that you so deserve.

    • I’ve seen the concept. This rendering, while close isn’t quite there. Everything behind the B-pillar is different, with an a new rear end design language, including tail light design. The overall vehicle is stunning in person. I thought the Lyriq was more impressive than the Celestiq.
