Cadillac has provided a sneak peek of the upcoming electric Escalade IQ, set to be officially unveiled on August 9th. While the initial glimpse doesn’t reveal much about the vehicle, it showcases LEDs integrated into the grille, including a stylized, digital rendition of the Cadillac badge.
The Escalade IQ will mark Cadillac’s inaugural venture into a fully electric, full-size SUV, following the release of the mid-sized Lyriq and the Celestiq sedan. As part of Cadillac’s transition towards a complete electric lineup by the end of the decade, the introduction of the Escalade IQ is highly anticipated. The electric vehicle is expected to leverage GM’s Ultium battery technology.
Manufacturing of the Escalade IQ will take place at GM’s Factory Zero plant in Michigan, which has undergone a substantial $2.2 billion renovation to accommodate an electric-focused future. While the precise date for the first production Escalade IQ is yet to be confirmed, Cadillac has stated that the vehicle is slated for release later this year.
