GM electric vehicle strategy last chance for Cadillac's success: executive

Cadillac is a division of General Motors which announced last week its intent to move towards an all-electric future.

Now, seemingly feeling the pressure from Tesla, the company has changed tack and plans to focus its electric cars efforts under its most expensive brand, Cadillac.

After taking two of the top honors at the North American International Auto Show, Hyndai has pulled the wraps off two vehicles at Cobo Center.

GM is vowing to reposition Cadillac as an EV brand.

The Cadillac EV's name and additional details will be revealed closer to launch.

GM says the new framework lets GM operate with a new level of flexibility, allowing the company to respond to customer needs and trends with minimal lead and development time.

"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", Cadillac said in a release.

Cadillac has a goal to sell an electric SUV priced more affordably than Tesla Inc.'s Model X, which often retails for more than $100,000. This will be the first model derived from GM's future EV platform.

The President of Cadillac, Steve Carlisle, said that this electric crossover will be "the foundation for a new kind of Cadillac".

It's been a big 2019 Detroit auto show for Cadillac; the brand also revealed a three-row SUV, the XT6, and suggested that the legendary Escalade SUV may be updated soon. Its arrival is part of an aggressive product cadence at Cadillac that will see one new model launched roughly every six months through 2021.
