  • This is Cadillac’s first fully electric car

Cadillac will be developing a new battery electric architecture from scratch and its system will be adjusted according to to every vehicle and customer requirements.

Now, seemingly feeling the pressure from Tesla, the company has changed tack and plans to focus its electric cars efforts under its most expensive brand, Cadillac. On the rendering shows a auto with a dynamic silhouette in the spirit XT5 models and futuristic "blind" front.

General Motors said Cadillac "will be at the vanguard of the company's move towards an all-electric future", beginning with this crossover model with a yet-unrevealed name.

Trump a Russian agent? 'Never,' he says

"Cadillac's EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world", Steve Carlisle, president of Cadillac, said in the press release.

The company has already promised that this platform will create a number of models with different types of bodies. GM says its adaptability will speed up new vehicle development time as well. One of the last brands to go electric is the Toyota-owned Lexus, who doesn't have an EV in their lineup, though they do have a successful range of hybrids.

That would be an all-new, fully electric vehicle for Cadillac. Tesla released its Model X SUV back in 2015, and yet it took more than three years for major players to bring something competitive out of the R&D unit. As with Tesla, the high-end vehicle is created to allow GM to spread the costs of converting to electric drivetrains over more expensive models that can absorb the cost, after federal tax credits for the auto giant's plug-in cars run out.
