The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq is well on its way to dealers, and now, the luxury marque has revealed that its first all-electric vehicle is capable of traveling 312 miles on a full charge.
While this statistic has yet to appear on the EPA website for the U.S., it can be found on NRCan, Canada’s fuel consumption ratings database. NRCan states that the Lyriq can travel 502 kilometers on a full charge, which is exactly 312 miles.
Riding on the new BEV3 platform, the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq in its base rear-wheel-drive form features a proprietary 100.4 kWh lithium-ion Ultium battery pack and a single Ultium Drive motor mounted on the rear axle. The electric driveline is rated at 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. Production of the Lyriq Debut Edition began at the end of March at the Spring Hill plant in Tennessee.
The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition offers high-speed DC fast charging up to 190 kW, allowing customers to add approximately 76 miles of range in about 10 minutes at designated charging stations. At-home outlet charging nets 52 miles of range per hour via a 240-volt outlet.
Recently, Cadillac announced that a high-performance Lyriq is on the way, featuring a second Ultium Drive motor that not only facilitates more power, but grants all-wheel-drive capabilities to the luxury crossover. The luxury marque has since indicated that the performance-oriented variation of the Lyriq, which will arrive sometime in early 2023, will have over 500 horsepower on tap.
Additionally, it was recently revealed that the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq is capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds, as much as the internal combustion engine-powered Cadillac XT5. It’s currently unclear what kind of range the Lyriq will get while hauling a full load, however.
