The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq made its official debut today, arriving with a 340-horsepower electric motor and a 100 kWh Ultium battery providing an estimated 300 miles of driving range. While the arrival of the production-ready Lyriq is certainly exciting, we think the market will be equally as hyped to learn that the electric crossover will be priced from a reasonable $59,990 in the United States.
Cadillac said last year that the production Lyriq would start at under $60,000 and we’re happy to report the luxury automaker has made good on its word. The $59,990 base price applies to the rear-wheel-drive model, which is the only Lyriq variant to debut thus far. More Lyriq variants with higher price points may debut sometime in the future, including an AWD version.
As for Cadillac’s Canadian buyers, they can expect to pay $69,898 CAD including destination for the electric crossover when it launches there next year.
Standard equipment on the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq includes 20-inch wheels, a curved 33-inch color display screen, 19-speaker AKG audio system with headrest speakers, Cadillac’s next-generation Active Noise Cancellation system, a dual-level charge cord and KeyPass digital vehicle access. Optional extras include the hands-free Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system and larger 22-inch wheels.
Cadillac will begin accepting reservations for the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq this September. The automaker has not said how much customers will have to pay upfront to secure their place in line.
Production of the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq will kick off at the GM Spring Hill Assembly plant in Tennessee in the first half of 2022, with initial customer deliveries commencing shortly thereafter.
