The 2023 Cadillac Lyric starts at 62,990, with a range of approximately 312 miles.

GM has released the starting price and some initial range numbers for its 2023 Cadillac Lyriq luxury electric crossover.

The first fully electric Cadillac costs 62,990, of which $ 1,195 is the destination fee, in the form of single-motor rear-wheel-drive, or $ 64,990 in the form of dual-motor all-wheel-drive. And in RWD format it will provide an estimated (though not yet official) EPA range of 312 miles.

Those who were interested and looking forward to the opening of Lyric Reservations last year are paying a little less for a special debut edition: $ 59,990, which sold out in about 10 minutes. According to the dealer site at the time, it was only offered to 1,500 customers.

There will be a specific performance boost for the AWD version. While the RWD Lyriq delivers an initial 340 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, the AWD Lyriq will deliver at least 500 hp.

Lyric production began in March at the former Spring Hill, Tennessee factory that manufactures Saturn products. RWD Lyriq scheduled for first delivery soon; But according to Cadillac, initial delivery of the AWD model will not begin until early 2023. Both editions will be open for reservations on May 19.

The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq offers a 12-module, 100-kwh battery pack, similar to the large-format pouch cells used in other Ultium vehicles such as the GMC Hummer EV — although here in a single-level pack. GM’s heat-pump-based power recovery system will help keep its real-world range and charging numbers more consistent than some other EVs.

Further, Cadillac says it will be able to charge up to 190 kilowatts and add range up to 76 miles in 10 minutes. Level 2 charging is particularly impressive though. With rates up to 19.2 kW – provided an 80-amp charger, on a required 100-amp circuit, if you’re lucky enough to setup your home – the Lyriq can crank up to 52 miles per hour.

The lyric promises to be exceptionally quiet on the inside, as it incorporates a next-generation active noise cancellation system. In the meantime, a so-called electric vehicle sound enhancement system complements the propulsion sound অথবা or, we hope, can be turned off.

At the interface, Lyric has entered a new realm for Cadillac, a huge 33-inch LED display that combines driver information, navigation and infotainment. An available 19-speaker surround sound system includes headrest speakers.

We got closer to the lyric and found the light to be particularly noticeable, which gives this model a visual flash from virtually every angle inside and out. With a wide rear seat, we see that it is becoming a powerful alternative to the Audi E-Tron, the Jaguar i-Pace and possibly the BMW iX — the initial indication that we want to get down to the real impression soon.
