Cadillac Will Still Offer Sedan-Like Vehicles During EV Revolution

When many people think Cadillac, they likely think of the luxurious “land-yacht” sedans that dominated the luxury marque’s lineup for most of its history. Lately, though, the automotive industry as a whole has been on a changing trajectory, with many brands trimming their sedan lineups in favor of utility vehicles like crossovers and SUVs. But as Cadillac pushes forward into its all-EV future, it doesn’t plan to completely turn its back on sedans, and will continue to make four-door passenger vehicles powered by an electric drivetrain. 

Cadillac Escala concept

Cadillac Society recently learned from sources familiar with future Cadillac product plans that the luxury marque plans to continuing to offer “low H-point” (“low hip-point) vehicles. In other words, a vehicle like the Cadillac Lyriq is said to have a “regular hip-point,” meaning it has a higher ride height and allows for easier entry and egress than a vehicle with a low hip point (such as a sedan) or a high hip point (such as an SUV like the Escalade).

Cadillac InnerSpace concept

Sources tell us that Cadillac will offer at least two vehicles that will have a low H-point, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that these will be traditional sedans with “three-box” designs. Instead, these vehicles will likely be sportbacks, similar to the Cadillac Escala concept  or the Cadillac InnerSpace concept.

The Cadillac Celestiq, the luxury marque’s upcoming flagship sedan, is a perfect example of a sedan with a low H-point. Specifics haven’t been released quite yet, but we do know that it will be low-slung. The Celestiq is expected to have an extravagant starting price point of $300,000, pricing it out of the range of many buyers.

However, Cadillac Society learned that there will be at least one more low H-point EV on the way. This vehicle will be more affordable and smaller than the Celestiq. In fact, Cadillac parent company, General Motors, has referred to this model as the “Lux Low Roof” in a product plan presentation regarding the BEV3 platform back in 2020. Sources also tell us that the luxury marque is also considering a third low H-point vehicle, but it’s not clear if this model has been greenlit for development at this point.

It should be noted that none of these forthcoming low H-point vehicles will feature a traditional gasoline-powered engine, and will instead feature battery electric propulsion systems.

  1. I am 3 weeks away from getting a 22 CT5V Blackwing. If Cadillac is only going to build electric cars, this will be my my last Cadillac.

    • I have been a GM owner, since I was 16, with a few Mercedes-Benz diesel automobiles, in the garage with the GM drivers. from the mid 1980’s thru early 1990’s.Observing this huge, almost forced transition, in our transportation, without needed preparation , or full knowing of what’s in store, and for the alleged reasoning, aka ‘political agenda’, is extremely concerning to many Americans, from all walks of life, and both political affiliations.
      I, by the way, own two GM vehicles and a German sports model, at the moment, none of which have more than 30, 000 miles on them…and I am planning to add a 50’s or 60’s fun driver, back into the mix, at one time we had a Collection of 14 50’s & 60’s GM automobiles…and I wonder what lies ahead, for our current automobiles, and to
      ‘Vintage automobiles’.
      All of this shared, in hope for replies, from those more knowledgeable on what the future holds, gives me the opportunity to note that I, along with many others I’ve spoken with, are in total agreement with your ‘last Cadillac’ comment…If GM is truly going to end production, of gasoline powered vehicles entirely, I/we will no longer be
      purchasing GM product. Thanks much for your time.

    • Apparently you’ve not felt the “Nail You Back In Your Chair” feeling of a twin motor (AWD) vehicle. I too am a Petrol Based Driver. However, after experiencing a twin motor tesla first hand….I gotta say Electric is looking better and better everyday. Oh, Nice score on the Blackwing!

  2. I couldn’t agree with you more

  3. I couldn’t agree with you more .
    But I love the CT5 Blackwing.

  4. It’s good Cadillac stays with sedans. Not everybody likes SUV’s or crossovers or is willing to buy one no matter what. While I will never buy a Lyriq (it’s a crossover and too high), I will consider a Celestiq. If it results too expensive, I’ll go for a Tesla Model S, but an SUV or a crossover, never.

  5. Someone should bring a retro station wagon back, complete with the fold up rear facing back seat. Great memories for baby boomers and everyone younger would think, Wow! What a neat, new concept!

    • Cadillac has always been a synonym of Elegance.
      There is no elegance at all in any SUV or crossover.
      Elegance is inherently large sedans and cabriolets.
      Cadillac should continue to be technologically Elegant.

      • “There is no elegance at all in any SUV or crossover.”

        Have you seen the Lyriq?!

  6. This is great .I WILL NEVER buy an SUV , or Crossovers. NEVER . People I know who do retain an automobile.
    High income people have choices .
    Cadillac must not become some prosaic people mover.
    Buick is AWFUL , with thzt crazy line up of crossover crates !
    I don’t know ANYBODY who wants a CO , or SUV exclusively .
    Some of us still appreciate class & style in our lives !
    If GM & Ford continues this absurdity & MOPAR its foreign sedans & coupes for me !
    Stellantis would be very sharp , to make an Imperial Newport – New Yorker as EVs
    I would love to see a Cadillac Convertible & Buick Wildcat ( as a car please) & so many of us who WILL not be pushed into a top heavy box .

  7. Before judging electrics one must drive one. Between 1996 and 1999 I had the great fortune to drive, on occasion, an EV-1. I named it the “Magic Carpet” because that was how it felt. I became a fan of EVs and remain one. I will always relish the sound, smell, and feel of my ‘60s V8s, but EVs are the future and there is no turning back. Drive a few of the current offerings and I believe you too will understand their appeal.

  8. So all you green people have no problem in the inconvenience of recharging an EV?

    • I can charge at home while I sleep. And soon I will charge for free! can ANYONE get gas for free while you sleep?

  9. Bring us the 2nd generation CT6 that is being developed and tested in the US, unfortunately for the China market. Cadillac sedan owners don’t want the CT5 or CT4 as they don’t offer the ride or size that we have grown accustomed to.

    I have owned an SRX and a XT5 cross over from Cadillac and went back to a sedan (XTS and a CT6) in less than a year. Not all customers want a CUV/SUV or a mall crawling pickup truck…many of us still want a full-sized luxury sedan. I now have 2 CT6’s and I will continue to own them as long as I can get parts for them if they need repairs in the future.

    We looked at a Tesla before ordering our 2020 CT6 AWD Super Cruise Premium Luxury and as we found out about adding a charging station to our house, the cost of the semi-automatous driving feature, the limited range (we drive more than 400 miles a day when traveling) in winter or summer due to keeping batteries warm or cooled, charging station availability and charging speeds, comfort of passengers, fit, finish and materials we knew it wasn’t for us.

    Bring us the ICE CT6, with the V6 or a V8 and not the turbo 4, and when the infrastructure is ready to support all the EV’s and they get a decent range maybe we’ll break down and get one, but I’ll keep and ICE CT6 as backup!

    • Hi, I am expecting delivery of the 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ, within 10 days. After seeing test drive reviews, I am excited and confident.
