We invite you to follow the latest Cadillac Lyriq-V news coverage.
During a press briefing about the Cadillac Lyriq in April 2021, Global Cadillac VP, Rory Harvey, was asked about a potential high-performance Lyriq variant, possibly something under the marque’s V-Series line of vehicles. Although Harvey’s response didn’t outline concrete plans to bring a Cadillac Lyriq-V to market, it did indicate that a Cadillac Lyriq V-Series was indeed under consideration.
“I’m not going to answer that question directly at this point in time, we need some other information to talk about that,” Harvey said. “But the way that I would respond to that is that if you look to Cadillac in the past, having sporty variants has been part of our heritage and we understand that there is a need and a desire and that is something that we’re looking at and evaluating looking forward. So more to come on that.”
Then, nearly two years later, Cadillac Society noticed that a “V” trim level was an option on the Cadillac Accessories website, serving as our first official proof that a Lyriq-V is, in fact, on the way.
