Cadillac is considered to be a popular high-end car manufacturer owned by automobile giant General Motors. Because of this, Cadillac has managed to garner quite the reputation amongst car fans, critics, and rival car manufacturers.

But while they have a lot of gorgeous high-end vehicles, there’s one kind of vehicle they don’t have in their inventory; the electric vehicle (EV).

This has no doubt caused some customers to turn away in favour of a car company that does have an EV in their line-up

But perhaps things are slowly changing over at Cadillac.

General Motors (GM) – the automotive giant that owns Cadillac, had previously announced that the luxury car manufacturer would be the one to lead the charge in EVs. Just days after this pivotal announcement was made, images came out to get eager customers excited for Cadillac’s first ever EV. But no more information came from Cadillac, or from GM for that matter. The vehicle’s name, specs, or anything else concerning it were not revealed in the initial announcement or following images.

Cadillac has explained that such information will be made public, “closer to launch.”

While this will no doubt frustrate people itching for a Cadillac EV, there are some hints available. The images presented by the luxury car brand suggest that it will most likely be a crossover. It will be an EV thanks to GM’s “BEV3” next-generation electric vehicle platform. This particular platform works for many different kinds of vehicles including all-wheel, front, and rear drive.

GM’s intentions to create multiple battery configurations for multiple vehicles could result in a shorter development cycle. That will allow GM to meet customer demands while also still compete with fellow car manufacturers. Given that Cadillac had declared that they’ll be introducing “new models at the rate of roughly one every six months through 2021,” there’s some hope that their EV will come out sooner than later.

Having said all that, it’s still very much evident that Cadillac’s first EV has a long way to go before it hits the streets. With confirmed details far and few between, there’s no guessing as to what Cadillac or GM have planned for the former’s EV foray.

All consumers and critics can do is wait and see as more details slowly come to light.
