We have had several announcements regarding the arrival of all-electric models at General Motors (GM). More recently, it was the turn of the Hummer EV SUV to be confirmed, as was the “green” version of the Silverado pickup truck.
At Cadillac, we already know that we will be entitled to the Lyriq SUV and the Celestiq sedan is also in the plans. However, according to some information circulating left and right, we would also be entitled to an all-electric version of the flagship model of the range, the Escalade SUV.
The Detroit News daily quotes a report from AutoForecast Solutions according to which the Escalade EV will see production launch at Factory Zero, Michigan, as early as January 2024. This is also where the Hummer and Silverado will be assembled. electric.
Still according to what is reported, the EV version of the Escalade will not replace the one equipped with a combustion engine. The company reportedly intends to sell both at the same time. This is certainly the right strategy, as not all Escalade buyers are ready to give up the V8 engine yet. Alienating a loyal customer base is the last thing Cadillac wants to do, especially since the latter is reaching around $ 100,000 to purchase this product. It is therefore important to keep her happy.

If the reported information is solid, we could see the vehicle in concept form somewhere in the year 2022.
However, we will have to be patient before we have any other information, but who knows, we may be taught things faster than we think? After all, it’s important to remember, GM plans to introduce 30 new electric models around the world by 2025. Of the lot, two-thirds will be sold here in North America.
There will therefore be many announcements in this direction over the next few months.
