We will deliver experiences that engage the senses, anticipate desires and enable our customers to go on extraordinary journeys.”
Jamie Brewer, Cadillac LYRIQ chief engineer, adds: “LYRIQ was conceived to make every journey exhilarating and leverages more than a century of innovation to drive the brand into a new era, while rewarding passengers with a more personal, connected and immersive experience. To do this we developed an architecture specifically for EVs. It is not only an exceptional EV, but first and foremost a Cadillac.”
