The all-wheel-drive Lyriq's basic specifications have been released by Cadillac. The all-wheel drive Lyriq will be able to tow up to 1,588 kg and will have a combined output of around 500 hp, which is a significant improvement over the rear-wheel drive model, which has a single electric motor producing 340 hp and 440 Nm of torque.
Cadillac revealed this information at an Instagram Ask Me Anything session. However, many details, such as cost and range, remain unknown.
The rear-wheel-drive option is expected to start at $59,990 and sports a 100 kWh lithium-ion battery pack with a range of 502 kilometers.
The 190 kW DC fast charging capacity on the Cadillac Lyriq may deliver up to 122 kilometers of range in as little as 10 minutes. The Lyriq supports Level 2 chargers up to 19.2 kW at home, which can deliver up to 84 kilometers of range every hour of charging.
The Audi e-tron and Jaguar I-Pace EV400 are the Lyriq's major competitors. The e-tron boasts a dual-motor all-wheel drive system that produces up to 402 horsepower and 664 Nm of torque, while the Jaguar produces 394 horsepower and 693 Nm of torque.
The Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition will be delivered this summer, with other models following in the fall.
