The Cadillac Lyriq has completed what its engineers are describing as 80% of its validation drive.

The milestone means that the electric SUV from the American luxury vehicle manufacturer will now transition to the final stage of testing prior to production. By confirming that all components and technologies are at or beyond 80%, the focus will now be on fine tuning the Lyriq prior to production.

The use of the battery-electric dedicated Ultium Platform is promising new levels of handling performance for the Cadillac Lyriq
The Cadillac Lyriq will be built upon the firm's Ultium Platform, delivering a low centre of gravity, exceptional chassis stiffness, and nearly 50/50 front-to-rear weight balance. These factors are said to open up unprecedented chassis-tuning flexibility, ushering in the next chapter of Cadillac's ride and handling philosophy: Isolated Precision.

At launch, the Cadillac Lyriq will be offered in the exclusive well-equipped Debut Edition, available with advanced technologies and stirring performance enabled by its dedicated electric architecture. A 12-module, 100.4kWh battery pack and a rear-wheel Utium Drive unit will deliver a GM estimated 335bhp and 440Nm of torque as well as a GM-estimated range of 482km on a full charge.

The Cadillac Lyriq will also offer high-speed direct current fast charging at up to 190kW, enabling customers to add up to 122km of range in about 10 minutes.
