Cadillac shows off its nameless-for-now first full electric

2020 Cadillac XT6 Premium Luxury

The look at the brand's first battery-electric vehicle came as part of the 2019 Detroit auto-show debut for the 2020 Cadillac XT6, a three-row crossover utility vehicle powered by a very conventional 3.6-liter V-6 gasoline engine.

"The architectural design will allow the battery packs to fit into the vehicle like ice cubes in an ice cube tray, you can put in as much water as you want to make as many cubes as you need - the tray still takes up the same space in the freezer", said Cadillac president Steve Carlisle.

Details about the vehicle were also being kept under wraps until closer to its launch date, which GM did not announce. The EVs can be configured in front-, rear- or all-wheel drive, and the output of their battery systems will be adjustable based on vehicle and customer needs.

But we can surmise a few things from the announcement.

That's how innovative features-from the electric self-starter to automatic transmissions, from air-conditioning to disc brakes, from fuel injection to adaptive cruise control-have entered the market.

Cadillac hasn't said when the electric crossover will arrive but a previous report pegged the launch in 2021. "It joins the all-new XT4, which has soared to the top spot in its segment, our global best-selling XT5 and the iconic Escalade to accelerate the brand's global growth, with a spirit that is uniquely Cadillac".

Due out in 2022, the SUV will be one of the first purely electric models released under the Cadillac moniker. The brand has also confirmed that "a variety" of electric cars based on the BEV3 platform will be added to its lineup.

General Motors said Cadillac "will be at the vanguard of the company's move towards an all-electric future", beginning with this crossover model with a yet-unrevealed name.
