Cadillac is ramping up its electric vehicle (EV) development with the help of GM's investments in electrification. The automaker has confirmed that another gas-free model, called the Optiq, will be joining its lineup in 2025. The Optiq will be a compact electric SUV, positioned below the Lyriq and flagship Escalade IQ.
Although Cadillac hasn't shared many details about the Optiq, they have provided an image of the upcoming EV. The design features the brand's signature vertical LED running lights and a muscular shape that resembles the larger Lyriq. The C- and D-pillars have a blacked-out style, giving the roof a floating appearance.
Thanks to General Motors' Ultium tech, the company's brands have been able to create a wide range of EVs. The Optiq seems to be similar in size and shape to the recently released Equinox EV. It shares the same underlying technologies as the Lyriq, Escalade IQ, and ultra-luxury Celestiq EVs. It is expected that the Optiq will have a range estimate of around 300 miles and will feature fast-charging capabilities.
While Cadillac hasn't provided specific pricing or a release date for the Optiq, they have mentioned that it will serve as a new entry point to the brand's electric vehicle line. The base Lyriq Tech trim starts at just under $59,000, so it is reasonable to anticipate the Optiq starting in the low to mid-$50,000 range.
