Cadillac debuts first brand EV at Detroit Auto Show

Cadillac shocks Detroit Auto Show with electric SUV preview

GM unveiled the new Cadillac XT6 SUV at the Detroit auto show, and while It's not all electric yet, there was some indication that the all EV model could be ready by 2021.

Cadillac showed off images of its first full-electric vehicle mid-January, confirming reports the brand would be the one to launch GM's new BEV3 battery-driven vehicle platform, which will underpin a variety of body styles.

"Cadillac's EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world", said Steve Carlisle, president of Cadillac.

The EV's name and specific details regarding its powertrain and range will be revealed closer to an also yet-unspecified launch window.

Cadillac's EV will be offered in both two- and all-wheel drive configurations globally and will use a rather unique battery architecture.

Mobile US launches Caller Verification to help protect customers from scams
The carrier's Caller Verified technology is being deployed to the Galaxy Note 9 first, activating when an incoming calls arrives. That's why T-Mobile, today, announced a new tool to fight all the spam and give phone owners a little bit more peace of mind.

But we can surmise a few things from the announcement.

Cadillac's electric crossover is expected to be a mid-size model created to take on the Tesla Model X and offer buyers the choice of two or three rows of seats.

The first is that GM has chose to follow the traditional development path for new and advanced automotive technologies, which historically have been launched in the most expensive brands and then filtered down to mass-market makes as costs fell.

Cadillac also announced a new XT6 crossover and shared plans for a revised Escalade and a performance sedan.

A large luxury crossover utility is inherently more profitable for any automaker than a compact hatchback, and those profits plus the falling costs seen by GM should ensure the electric Cadillac will not lose money.
