Cadillac's Sneak Peek at Two Fresh EVs for Chinese Market

Cadillac is gearing up to release a range of electric vehicles in China, and the company has given a sneak peek at two upcoming crossovers. Last week, Cadillac unveiled the 2025 Optiq, their entry-level electric crossover. However, it seems that this model may not hold that position for long, as the company used the Guangzhou Auto Show to tease two more models.

While Cadillac did not provide many specifics, the General Director of Cadillac Sales and Marketing at SAIC-GM, Tim Heile, emphasized the importance of China as the world's largest EV market. He revealed that by the end of next year, Cadillac plans to introduce more new EVs in China, along with a refreshed lineup of internal combustion engine vehicles, in order to cater to the diverse preferences of customers and redefine luxury mobility.

Although the teaser images do not reveal much, it appears that one of the crossovers is similar in size to the Optiq but features a flatter roof, a shorter hood, and a less upright front end. The other crossover appears smaller and taller, with a pronounced shoulder line and shared design cues from the aforementioned model. However, it's important to note that the caption states the images are for reference only, suggesting that the final production models may differ.

While it remains uncertain if these mystery models will be available in America, spy photographers have captured images of a three-row Cadillac EV that is expected to serve as a successor to the XT6. Positioned between the Lyriq and Escalade IQ, this model is still shrouded in mystery, with limited information available at this point.

However, this could change soon, as Cadillac officials have previously announced plans to introduce three new EVs this year. With the Optiq and Escalade IQ already unveiled, there is one more model yet to be debuted, expected to make its appearance later this year.
