But whether it'll ever see the light of day remains to be seen.
Cadillac is a little bit late to the electric party, but its first EV, the Lyriq, looks set to make up for that delay by being stunning inside and out while also being a lot more affordable than expected. Coupled with a system that works better than Tesla's Autopilot, the Cadillac brand is growing from strength to strength, and what better way to capitalize on good press than by showing off what your designers can do when their imaginations are allowed to run wild? GM already released some early sketches of the GMC Hummer, and now we get a look at a totally new design that could preview a new crossover.
The design is radical but has distinctly Caddy flourishes, including that spectacular rear end that references both the Lyriq and Cadillac's own crest. Most attractive are the superfluous vents on the roof that frame a central fin much like that seen on the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. There are also vents beneath the rear deck that would presumably cool the power source, which would surely be electric. A vent ahead of the front fender breaks up the otherwise elegantly simple profile of the concept, while massive wheels with a sort of turbine design are typical for a theoretical design study like this.
While it's almost guaranteed that this concept will never see the light of day - at least not in this form - it does indicate that Cadillac is looking at bringing more exciting vehicles to market. Coupled with the fact that an electric supercar design was recently unveiled by the brand, it seems that the brand could be gauging the reaction that a sportier product offering could generate. This is all just conjecture at this point, but we like to dream, and the idea of radical Caddys with loads of instant electric torque sounds brilliant to us. All that remains is for Cadillac to pull the trigger.
