Concept This Is Cadillac's New Electric Crossover

Although information is incredibly light at this point, this is GM signaling to the market it will not be sitting on its hands as EVs begin to come into the mainstream.

The EV will be on a new, flexible platform, according to Cadillac, that will underpin all manner of front-, rear- and all-wheel drive vehicles.

For now, scope out the two images and stay tuned to AutoSpies.com as we update the site tonight and into tomorrow. The brand has also confirmed that "a variety" of electric cars based on the BEV3 platform will be added to its lineup. GM announced on Friday that Cadillac will be at the vanguard of the company's move toward an all-electric future. The name of the electric vehicle as well as all additional (technical) details will follow later, closer to the launch date.

Both sides are equally in the dark about the long-term result of the country's exit from the EU. Members of Parliament (MPs) voted by an overwhelming margin of 230 votes to reject her deal.


The President of Cadillac, Steve Carlisle, said that this electric crossover will be "the foundation for a new kind of Cadillac". It can also be transformed rapidly, for a "short design and development lead time", allowing the automaker to more quickly respond to changing consumer tastes. The platform is the familiar skateboard design where a flat battery sits in the floor and electric motors are mounted at the axles, and GM has said that BEV3 will be able to offer more than 300 miles of range. Its arrival is part of an aggressive product cadence at Cadillac that will see one new model launched roughly every six months through 2021.

More importantly, the platform promises flexibility: front, rear or all-wheel drive, and varying power outputs dependant on the vehicle and customer.
