Check Out Our Rendering Of An Imaginary Cadillac Lyriq Coupe

As far as we know, there are no plans to put a coupe version of the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq all-electric luxury crossover into production, but has that stopped the inventive fellows in the Cadillac Society offices from creating images of this mythical product? Of course it hasn’t.

The imaginary vehicle is visually similar in many respects to the ‘real’ Cadillac Lyriq, but there are important differences. Notably, it has only two doors rather than the crossover’s four, as a true coupe should. It also rides much lower, further emphasizing the Lyriq’s obvious body rake and giving the impression of a current Formula 1 race car, in this respect if no other.

The front and rear fascias are almost identical to those on the Lyriq show car (though of course much closer to the ground) but the windshield and rear window are more steeply angled – another feature one would expect to see in a coupe.

A production version of the Cadillac Lyriq Coupe, if such a thing ever came to pass, would undoubtedly be built alongside both the regular version as well as the Cadillac XT5 and Cadillac XT6 luxury crossovers at the Spring Hill facility in Tennessee. It would be based on the same BEV3 platform as the “regular” Lyriq, while also featuring Ultium batteries and Ultium Drive electric motors. With less frontal area and a substantially lower center of gravity, it would certainly be faster in a straight line and handle better than the four-door Lyriq from which it would be derived.

Although we may sigh stoically as we file these images into the Never Going To Happen drawer, we at least have the crossover to look forward to. As Cadillac Society has previously reported, it will go on sale a full nine months sooner than expected in the first quarter of 2022. Official images of the production vehicle have not yet been released, but executives have stated that the show car is “very similar” in appearance to the production car, though with a few unspecified changes.

The Lyriq is noteworthy in that it will be Cadillac’s first-ever all-electric model. Between its launch to the end of 2025, it will be joined by five others: two more crossovers called Optiq and Symboliq, the $200,000 Celestiq flagship sedan, an electric version of the Escalade full-size SUV and an as yet unnamed car so far referred to only as the “low-roof” EV, which is likely to be a cross between a sedan and a coupe. When all these have gone on sale, the proportion of electric vehicles in the Cadillac range will have risen from the current zero to no less than 50 percent.

  1. The rendering is terrible.

    In reality, two door crossovers coupes/convertibles never caught on with little support but the four door crossover coupes seems to be popular.

  2. The coupe will be a success, beauty, styling and technology is a winning formula.

  4. AS ELDO GUY I love my 2 doors. Still driving my flawless 2k Eldo . Order me up one of these 2 door lyric’s with a 400 mile range . Definitely like it better than the 4 door. IM iffy on the electric thing for many reasons but I would take a chance on the 2 door . How about one with suicide doors !

  5. Do the wagon. Yes, I know not everyone wants 2 door wagon but there are people, like me, who will buy it if it looks good and runs like crazy. And then we do our wild custom thing to it so it really looks good. Been doing that for 50 years and so far it works.

  6. Built both, the two door coupe would help sells.

  7. This is gorgeous. Cadillac should really consider making two-door versions of these upcoming EVs.

    • Ya I like it a lot , lower stance gives it more of a sporty look .Not much of a SUV guy but this could work for me with a 400 mile battery range

  8. The Lyriq Coupe rendering looks quite good, but hopefully the designers will consider adding a few “Coupe only” design elements, along the lines of how the second-generations CTS Sedan of 2008 through 2013 differed from the 2011 through 2014 CTS Coupes–with the sloping rear backlight (window) and the “V” design element of the rear end bodywork on the Coupes being much more highly styled–quite distinctive from the Sedan. Either way, a stylish Cadillac Coupe will sell!
