Cadillac showed us a teaser of its first EV at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. This EV is coming up soon but with that we’ve got some more interesting news from Cadillac as well. It plans to go all-electric by 2030. Cadillac has always made a statement with its cars for sale in Dubai and we’re excited to see what it’s coming up with next.
Recently, Cadillac President Steve Carlisle told journalists that the company might become an EV-only brand by the end of this decade. Of course, that’s an ambitious plan and the manufacturer might not be able to reach it. Still, as implied by Carlisle, the next ten years will probably mark the end of internal combustion engines.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that we won’t be seeing ICE cars from the brand anymore. It will still continue to work on new powertrains, but most of its upcoming cars might be electric. The company doesn’t see demand surging drastically before the middle of 2025. Also, don’t expect Hybrids, PHEVs and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles from the automaker. Moreover, Cadillac is the leading GM brand to go electric.
Cadillac Could Enter New Segments Too
Additionally, with EVs, we might see Cadillac enter new segments, which might not have been a possibility with a car running on traditional fuel. At the same time, the company isn’t planning to leave segments it is already in just because it is prioritizing EVs now.
For now, we can look forward to the previously mentioned zero-emissions crossover which was previewed during the Detroit Auto Show. Six people will be able to travel in it at a time. The car is also expected to feature an advanced autonomous driving system. It will come with a futuristic cabin that will boast a large digital display. The car will presumably have a range of more than 400, which will be made possible because of better battery technology. It’s under development right now.
Get Ready For Real Model Names
It has also been revealed that these EVs will not have alphanumerical branding like the CT4-V and CT5-V. Instead, Cadillac has decided to give them proper model names. It’s not known if the company will bring back some old names or come up with entirely new ones
