    There is very little Lyriq news available from Cadillac. I was expecting some more technical news to keep potential buyers interested. As of now, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is more interesting, cheaper, and available by next month for me. Actual deliveries have begin.

    Yes, I agree that the volume of Lyriq news has been disappointing (basically, nothing). I’ve also noticed the Mach-E rollout and am mildly interested. I hope that my 2012 Chevy Volt (bought new in late 2011) holds out long enough so that I will have a decent list of choices for my next EV.

    The “First Edition” production began March 21st, but I have not seen any news about it here, yet I did read about it at the GM Authority forum. And Cadillac announced another electric SUV but smaller, similar to the XT4 while the Lyriq compares to the XT5 in size.If it is below $50,000 it will be a better selling model than the Lyriq.

    Buy the Lyriq from China – you will get it this year!

    Why buy it from China? I don’t live that far!!!

    I can wait for the 2024 MY and get it locally. I am not in any rush to buy one.

    Raymond,
    Since satire and irony has you so confused, I will keep this simple: I ordered my 2023 Lyriq on September 19 which was to be “delivered” in the 1st quarter of 2022… 10 months later (June), no car and no word from Cadillac as I continue to spend over $100 weekly to fill my EXT Cadillac; Gas now at $5 per gallon!
    To add insult to injury, Cadillac just announced that their partners in Communist China will build and deliver Lyriq Now! Lol

    I’d be fascinated to see where GM promised the Debut Edition of the Lyriq in the “first quarter of 2022”. I’d always heard it would be in the first half of 2022, of which still a week remains.

    However current word from my dealer in Santa Clara seems to be July at best, possibly even August. (My order is silver with 20″ wheels. I hadn’t heard about a heads-up option.)

    Annoyingly Super Cruise won’t be available until later in the year. I just hope Adaptive Cruise Control doesn’t need Super Cruise. Not having ACC on either the 2017 or 2019 Bolt has been a real bummer after experiencing it on the 2016 Toyota Mirai for 36 months.

    Meanwhile I just heard that Mach-E’s are being recalled and their sales stopped while Ford deals with a contactor welding problem. Being into hardware design debugging myself, I’ve been trying to figure out independently of Ford where their power distribution unit design might be failing.

    Cadillac has been slow to deliver the 2023 Lyriq. But this is expected because the normal month to begin deliveries is September. And I am in no hurry to order or buy one. I can wait for the 2024 model year or order for the 2025 model year, after the first year “bugs” have been engineered out. As for China, they are selling Cadillacs faster than hamburgers because there are more Chinese who have the income to buy them, their government gives more EV incentives, and they need to cut gasoline consumption. So Cadillac buyers are more interested and motivated in China.

    Unless you can convince more people to buy local made cars there is no valid reason to criticize Cadillac for selling Lyriqs sooner in China.
