Highlights

  • Cadillac is all set to be a fully electric brand by the end of 2030
  • Its EV goals are even more aggressive than the rest of the GM group
  • Cadillac's next vehicle, Celestiq, will also be an EV

GM has said its premium Cadillac brand is going all-in on electric powertrains. Starting with its latest vehicle the Lyriq, all vehicles will be EVs. Rory Harvey, the head of Cadillac, said that the brand will just focus on EVs. "We will be leaving this decade as an EV brand, as things stand today, which means we will not be selling ICE vehicles by 2030," said Harvey.

Cadillac has been teasing the Celestiq for a while now

Harvey did say for the time being Cadillac will sell its current portfolio of vehicles which are based on the internal combustion engine as they are relatively fresh. But what Harvey has said also means that Cadillac as a brand will be fully electric ahead of GM as a group because GM's deadline for electrification is 2035.
