Cadillac’s parent, General Motors Company, has filed to trademark the name “Symboliq” for use on a future Cadillac electric vehicle, Cadillac Society has uncovered.
Made on July 22nd, 2020 with the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, the filing consists of two names: “Symboliq” and “Cadillac Symboliq.” Both filings list “Motorized land vehicles, namely automobiles” as the Goods and Services with which the names will be associated.
|Country of Origin||Serial Number||Filing Date||Language of Application||Goods and Services|
|Cadillac Symboliq||Switzerland||10341/2020||July 22, 2020||German||Motorized land vehicles, namely automobiles|
|Symboliq||Switzerland||10342/2020||July 22, 2020||German||Motorized land vehicles, namely automobiles|
At least five future Cadillac electric models are slated to launch over the next few years. The onslaught will start with the Cadillac Lyriq – a midsize crossover slightly larger than the Cadillac XT5 currently on sale today.
The Lyriq will go into production in 2022 and will be joined by four other Cadillac electric models:
- A smaller crossover roughly the size of the current Cadillac XT4
- A larger three-row crossover roughly the size of the current Cadillac XT6
- A full-size, three-row luxury SUV that is an electric version of the current Cadillac Escalade
- The Cadillac Celestiq – a full-size, hand-made ultra-luxury sedan with a starting price of around $200,000
The Symboliq name follows the direction of Lyriq and Celestiq – the first two names announced in association with Cadillac electric vehicle efforts. Additionally, the Symboliq name has the “iq” suffix like Lyriq and Celestiq. The new naming convention marks a noteworthy departure from Cadillac’s current nomenclature of CT# for sedans and XT# for crossovers.
As of this writing, GM/Cadillac have yet to file a trademark application for the Symboliq name in the United States, but we’re sure that this will take place in due time. We’ll have more as it happens, so be sure to subscribe to Cadillac Society for more Cadillac Symboliq news, and around-the-clock Cadillac news coverage.
