Customers ordering a Lyriq will also have the option between two additional exterior colors: Opulent Blue Metallic and Crystal White Tricoat, in addition to the launch colors: Satin Steel Metallic and Stellar Black Metallic.

The 12-module, 100 kilowatt-hour battery pack delivers a Cadillac-estimated 340-horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque in the RWD model.

The AWD model, with the second drive unit, offers an estimated 500-horsepower.The AWD model is also has a 3,500-pound trailering capacity.

Other features on the Lyriq include: a a 33-inch-diagonal advanced LED display, AKG Studio 19-speaker audio system and next-generation Active Noise Cancellation that helps cancel out undesirable sounds on the road.

Lyriq will also be the first Cadillac to have the next-generation Super Cruise self-driving technology, but it will not be active when the first customers take delivery this summer.


"They will come with all of the Super Cruise hardware in the vehicles. That hardware will be enabled and it will be triggered for an over-the-air update so that Super Cruise will actually be enacted and go live toward the end of the year for those customers that take delivery of their early vehicles," Harvey said.

GM is giving customers 100,000 reward points or a year of free charging for having to wait for Super Cruise.

GM's Spring Hill, Tennessee, plant launched production of the Lyriq in March. The plant received a $2 billion investment to build electric Cadillacs there.

Production of the Lyriq launched in Shanghai, China this month. Deliveries are expected in the middle of the year there.
