Concept This Is Cadillac's New Electric Crossover

Thrifty or rambunctious: 2020 Ford Explorer hybrid and ST revealed

The look at the brand's first battery-electric vehicle came as part of the 2019 Detroit auto-show debut for the 2020 Cadillac XT6, a three-row crossover utility vehicle powered by a very conventional 3.6-liter V-6 gasoline engine.

So far the 2019 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS) has been pretty much par for the course but General Motors' has brought forth something we didn't see coming.

GM is vowing to reposition Cadillac as an EV brand.

Details about the vehicle were also being kept under wraps until closer to its launch date, which GM did not announce.

"The first-ever Cadillac XT6 delivers a compelling blend of spaciousness, safety and convenience features for customers who thrive on doing it all", said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president.

That would be an all-new, fully electric vehicle for Cadillac. Overall, Cadillac will introduce new models at the rate of roughly one every six months through 2021. It will also allow for a shorter development cycle.

The most advanced components within this platform are the drive units and battery cells, both of which are being designed for maximum usability throughout GM vehicle lineups in different countries.

The new platform will be flexible, and adaptable to front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations.

"We talked about a huge investment in electric vehicles".

The potential Tesla Model X competitor doesn't yet have a name, nor do we know any of the key specifications including range, price or performance. "It joins the all-new XT4, which has soared to the top spot in its segment, our global best-selling XT5 and the iconic Escalade to accelerate the brand's global growth, with a spirit that is uniquely Cadillac".
