While Cadillac is known for luxury and comfort, who would have thought that they’d be introducing stellar EVs as well? The 2024 all-electric Cadillac Lyriq is making waves in the SUV and EV market, showing even brands like Tesla who is in charge. This vehicle continues the long tradition of high-end luxury; the interior is spacious and refined, while the exterior is sleek and stylish. All the features you’ve come to expect from a Cadillac model and more are present here on the Lyriq EV. This vehicle stands out from the crowd both in function and beauty with its incredible design, features, and performance. As your North Dakota Cadillac dealer, we are proud to present to you an EV worthy of our home state. Let’s take a more in-depth look at what Cadillac has achieved in the design of the Lyriq.

Cadillac Continues Its Legacy of Luxury

Every Cadillac is built with incredible attention to detail, from the shape of the headlights to the buttons on the dashboard, the stitching on the seats, and the interior lighting. From front to back, every minute detail is accounted for. With models like the Escalade, the DeVille, and the Eldorado in its docket, you know that its newest models can only be one thing: iconic from top to bottom.

The Cadillac Lyriq starts off with a bang and comes in three different trims: the Tech, Luxury, and Sport. The Tech trim is packed with features that will revolutionize your daily drive. It utilizes special features like Regen on Demand and One-Pedal Driving. The trim comes with a 33-in diagonal advanced LED display, the Cadillac Smart System (driver assist and safety features), wireless phone charging, and has a fixed full-glass roof. Next up, the Luxury trim will make every drive feel magnificent, even if it’s just a trip to the grocery store. With the Luxury trim, you can opt for Super Cruise, which is a semi-autonomous driving system. You can opt for front-seat ventilation with lumbar massage (perfect for long trips or after a tough day at work), second-row heated seats, and a 19-speaker audio system. You’ll never want to get out of the car again.

With the Sport trim, driving becomes an extension of yourself. All standard and available features from the Luxury and Tech trims are included. You’ll also have obsidian chrome and dark accent finishes, a unique illuminated front grille, and body-color door handles.

Features that Will Blow Your Mind

The aforementioned 33-inch multimedia screen is an LED display that stretches from the steering wheel through the center of the dashboard and has a 9K resolution. All the info about your car, media, and settings are just a tap away on the colorful and sharp screen. You’ll love the luxury sound system by AKG Studio that is available on the Luxury trim and standard on the Sport trim. This system has 19 speakers to capture the fullness of sound. If you love listening to music, but you dislike trying to listen through all the road noise when driving, Cadillac has an advanced next-generation noise-canceling system. This system works by analyzing road noise, engine noise, and suspension noise, then uses specialized technology to negate the sound waves, making the interior of a Cadillac Lyriq a peaceful and quiet place.

Let’s not forget the exterior, though; the sleek lines, stylish wheels, and futuristic grille design are all perfectly accented by the lighting. Each light has been carefully placed to be functional and beautiful all at the same time. Cadillac also has a pleasing ambient lighting system for the interior of the vehicle as well. Up to 26 colors of dual-zone lighting are available, easily controlled by the multimedia touch screen. Truly a luxury inside and out, the Lyriq never ceases to amaze.

The Revolutionary Ultium Battery

The Ultium is a battery platform designed by GM that has greatly simplified EV vehicles, making them more affordable and easier to manufacture. It uses 80% less wire material. Yes, you read that right, 80% less. It also uses 70% less cobalt, making it much more eco-friendly. Cobalt is a difficult and rare material to mine, and the less we need to produce electronic components, the better. In addition to the improved efficiency, Ultium has significant performance improvements over the previous generations of EVs.

The Ultium platform keeps the weight evenly distributed and keeps the center of gravity low. On a full charge, the Lyriq is able to go up to 308 miles, a similar range to most other SUVs. The Cadillac Lyriq can be equipped with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. Rear-wheel drive Lyriq models have an estimated range of 308 miles and get 340 horsepower and 324 lb-ft of torque. With all-wheel drive, the Lyriqs range is 307 miles, but the horsepower rating is 500 and it gets 450 lb-ft of torque.

Charging the Lyriq is simple. You can get a professionally installed level 2 charger for your home. Plug in your Lyriq, and you will get up to 51 miles of charge an hour. If you routinely travel and you are worried about charging on the go, the Lyriq has a dual-level charging cord that allows you to plug into a 4-prong or 3-prong outlet. You can even find public charging stations all over the United States, so you can travel to your heart’s content. At a public charging station, your Cadillac gets up to 77 miles or range in a 10-minute charge. After all, the Cadillac Lyriq has everything you could possibly need except for your morning cup of coffee.

A Luxury Vehicle With Incredible Cost Savings

We’ve shared all of the features that make this model stand out but have yet to discuss the cost. What might a Cadillac Lyriq cost you? The starting MSRP is $58,590, but once you combine that number with the features you get, it is like nothing.[a] What’s even better is that the 2024 Cadillac Lyriq is eligible for a $7,500 tax credit. With the Lyriq, you’ll be skipping the gas pump and saving money when it comes to filing your taxes. We can’t see anything wrong with that.

Impressive Tech in a Luxury Package

The 2024 Cadillac Lyriq is an incredible addition to the Cadillac lineup and an even more impressive addition to the electric vehicle market. The truly impressive Ultium battery platform provides more power and uses fewer resources which some thought to be impossible. It makes the Lyriq more comfortable, provides more interior space, and allows for more high-tech features. The Lyriq itself is going to revolutionize the way we think and feel about cars.

Sophistication and class are evident in every aspect of the Lyriq, from the wood trim to the leather seats and 33-inch LED screen. You’ll never want to step out of your vehicle again. So when you are searching for a high-end luxury electric vehicle, and you would like it to be as functional as it is beautiful, make sure to come by Ryan Cadillac of Minot and test drive a Lyriq.
