General Motors Corporation (General Motors) launched the long-awaited electric car Cadillac (Cadillac). The range of an electric vehicle is similar to that of a Tesla (Tesla), but potential buyers should be patient.

The new Cadillac electric car called Lyriq appeared nearly four months later than originally expected, and General Motors was delayed in revealing it due to the Coronavirus.

However, compared to the two years it would take to sell the car, the delay during that period is minimal.

Cadillac plans to distinguish its electric models from internal combustion engines by giving them names ending with the letters "iq" to indicate that it will work with people, nature and machines to bring a different type of car to the market. .

General Motors plans to launch Lyriq in the second half of 2022. Investors who have heard CEO Mary Barra's announcement of electric cars may be alarmed by this possibility. disappointing.

The Lyriq is expected to hit the market after the launch of the Chevrolet Bolt, and the new GMC Hummer is expected to hit the market next year.

"Cadillac will build on Lyriq for the next decade and redefine American luxury with a host of new, transformative electric cars," said Steve Carlisle, president of GM North America, in a statement.

Parra's list of other Ultium battery models and systems launched in March prompted analysts to urge General Motors to consider decoupling EV operations, an idea that emerged internally in 2018.

Cadillac Lyriq offers a variety of configurations such as rear wheels and all-wheel drive, as well as enhanced Super Cruise and hands-free driver assistance systems.

The hands-free driver assistance system will be available on highways for more than 200,000 miles and offer automatic lane-change functions. Erik can also stand up.

The car features a 33-inch touchscreen that covers the entire cockpit at twice the resolution of a 4K TV, just like Cadillac will present it in the new Escalade SUV slated for later this year. Year.

Other luxury brands are making efforts to wholesale electric vehicles.

Volkswagen-owned Audi delivered fewer than 17,000 E-Trons in the first half of the year, while Jaguar, a subsidiary of Tata Motors, delivered more than 5,400 I-Paces.
