Cadillac Takes Aim at Tesla With SUV Priced Below Model X

2020 Cadillac XT6

"Cadillac's EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world", he said. That said, we've only so far seen renderings of the electric crossover with few details regarding specs. GM said its gearing up to position Cadillac as a luxury rival to the current segment leader, Tesla.

GM previously announced that Cadillac would be its lead brand for electric vehicle, and now we are getting images in the form of teasers for the automakers first planned electric vehicle. This will be the first model derived from GM's future EV platform.

The most advanced components within this architecture are the drive units and adjustable batteries designed for maximum usability throughout General Motors range in different countries.

The new Cadillac SUV will also be the first auto built on GM's forthcoming BEV3 chassis platform. As with Tesla, the high-end vehicle is created to allow GM to spread the costs of converting to electric drivetrains over more expensive models that can absorb the cost, after federal tax credits for the auto giant's plug-in cars run out.

Last year, the luxury carmaker denied it was behind the times, instead, it was saying it wasn't time for electric vehicles, and their delay in turning to all-electric models shows they are working towards better powertrain designs.

CADILLAC made its presence known at the Detroit motor show this week, revealing its first fully electric crossover concept alongside its new road-going - and conventionally powered - XT6 crossover.
