Cadillac Lyriq-V Could Debut In March

Posted on

The Cadillac V-Series sub-brand represents the luxury marque’s pride and joy when it comes to high-performance vehicles. As Cadillac enters the electric vehicle era, the first electric vehicle to wear the V-Series badge will be introduced in the near future. While details have yet to be released, it’s highly likely that this V-Series EV will be the Cadillac Lyriq-V. In fact, the high-performance electric luxury crossover could be unveiled this month.

The V-Series line turns 20 years old in 2024, and the luxury marque has spent the last 12 months celebrating the milestone anniversary with a slew of special products and features. The year-long festivities will wrap up with a 20th Anniversary Celebration in March 2024, perfectly setting the stage for the reveal of the Cadillac Lyriq-V.

The Lyriq-V is the most logical next step for the V-Series line, and it’s been a long time coming, to boot. Cadillac Society was the first to report that the high-performance electric luxury crossover was on the way way back in 2021 when it was in the idea phase. Almost two years later, we noticed that a “V” trim level was an option on the Cadillac Accessories website, serving as the first official proof that a Lyriq-V is, in fact, on the way. Shortly thereafter, more details came to light, including that the Lyriq-V will build on the existing Sport trim level, will sport dark exterior accents and V-Series badging.

Then, in May 2023, Cadillac Society learned that the Lyriq-V would be more powerful than any Lyriq to date. For reference, the most powerful model sold thus far is the dual-motor, all-wheel-drive Lyriq. This powertrain choice is rated at 500 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, making it quick enough to run from zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. 

Whatever the case, it seems that the Cadillac Lyriq-V is days or weeks from being revealed, at which point it will catapult the V-Series name into battery electric vehicle era.
