Cadillac has just announced the first all-electric Escalade, called the Cadillac Escalade IQ. IQ is the brand’s EV nomenclature, so it’s not surprising that this is what the badging will be. Naturally, the company didn’t reveal any technical details about the large luxury SUV but did state that it would be unveiled later this year. However, recent spy photos of the upcoming electric Escalade on the road revealed that it have a few design similarities to the upcoming Celestiq flagship luxury sedan.

Cadillac Escalade IQ: Details

The Cadillac Escalade IQ will offer the same commitment to craftsmanship, technology, and performance as the internal combustion engine version. Additionally, adding the Cadillac Escalade IQ will mean the brand will have three all-electric vehicles on the market, including the Cadillac Lyriq and Cadillac Celestiq. According to MC&T intelligence, the electric Escalade is to ride on the GM’s BT1 electric truck and SUV architecture found on the GMC Hummer EV, Sierra EV, and Chevrolet Silverado EV. However, that doesn’t come as a surprise.

Cadillac is also expected to debut a longer wheelbase version of the all-electric Escalade IQ, called the Escalade IQL.

First reports of an all-electric Escalade first emerged in 2019, and it’s not much of a surprise to anyone that the large SUV is on the way. At this time, we can expect Cadillac to launch a 400-mile version of the SUV, which should help with sales as many people will want to make family road trips with their large luxury SUVs. Additionally, we can expect to see the Cadillac Escalade IQ manufactured in at the GM Factory Zero plant in Detroit along with the Hummer EV, Chevrolet Silverado EV, and GMC Sierra EV.

That said, the Escalade IQ will likely feature the 200-kilowatt-hour battery, which would give it 400 miles of range, giving the Rivian R1S another competitor, though the SUV is likely two years out from reaching the market. It’ll be good for customers to get the opportunity to obtain an EV version of the Escalade rather than the gas-guzzling ICE version. However, it will still cost a pretty penny to recharge, as displayed by a report regarding the GMC Hummer EV pickup a few months ago.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
