Cadillac proclaims its future with Thursday debut of all-electric Lyriq

Cadillac is turning to its next chapter as an electric-vehicle brand with the debut of the 2022 Cadillac Lyriq crossover.

The battery-powered Lyriq, Cadillac’s first all-electric vehicle, will debut online Thursday night. Although the Lyriq is not expected to hit showrooms until sometime in 2022, it marks the beginning of Cadillac’s dive into electrics. General Motors Co.’s stated goal is to sell more Cadillacs with rechargeable batteries than gas tanks by 2030.
