Upcoming Cadillac Lyriq EV To Be Built At Spring Hill, Tennessee Plant

Cadillac officially unveiled the Lyriq show car back in August of 2020. The upcoming model represents Cadillac’s first fully electric vehicle that’s slated to launch as a 2023 model-year vehicle. And now, Cadillac’s parent company, GM, announced that the Cadillac Lyriq for North America will be built at the Spring Hill Facility in Tennessee. The automaker has invested $2 billion into the plant for various upgrades, including new machines and tooling to allow for the production of electric vehicles.

The Lyriq will be built alongside the Cadillac XT5 and Cadillac XT6 in the same plant, meaning that the Spring Hill facility will build vehicles with internal combustion engines as well as EVs. Other electric vehicles are planned to be built at the Spring Hill plant, though the specifics are currently unknown.

The Lyriq is also expected to be built at a plant in China for the Chinese domestic market.

The Cadillac Lyriq will ride on an all-new platform dedicated to electric vehicles called BEV3. The crossover will feature RWD and a single, rear-mounted electric motor as standard. AWD will be optional, enabled by a front-mounted electric motor.

No matter the drive wheels, Cadillac’s Ultium battery will provide power for over 300 miles of range. Different charging methods will be supported, including DC fast charging with rates of over 150 kilowatts and Level 2 charging with rates of up to 19 kilowatts.

Inside, the Cadillac Lyriq will feature a 33-inch LED display for a completely rethought infotainment and instrumentation experience. A 19-speaker AKG sound system and the semi-autonomous Super Cruise driver assist system will be optional. Another forward-looking piece of technology in the Lyriq will be supervised remote parking, which uses ultrasonic sensors to enable the luxury crossover to park itself in difficult-to-access parking spaces.

Pricing for the base model will start at under $60,000 in the United States.

  1. I expect to see the actual view of the true production Lyriq since the vehicle shown is still a concept. When I see it then I will post my reservation.

    • For what it’s worth, I’ve been told that the show car seen here is “very close” to what the production model will look like. I’d expect different wing mirrors, wheels and maybe a few small changes to the interior, but not much else.

      • I think it is very important that the interior come to market very close to the show car.

  2. I too am anxious to see the “real thing”. I really like the “fins” at the rear.

  3. GM is plannining to build all of these electric vehicles but like the rest of the automakers they give the mileage in summer wheather but not in winter how far will they go with the lights,heater, defroster,windsheild wipers, heated steering wheel, heated seats,and heated rear window etc. how will they start if the person has no garage but a plug in Would you expect a person to spend $50,000 on up for a vehicle that will travel a lot less than half the predicted miles on the window sticker in the winter.

    • Less than half the predicted range? Unless you’re running the accessories in question with full fan speed while driving like a maniac, you are overstating the situation.
