GM shows off images of Tesla rivalling all-electric SUV from Cadillac

2020 Cadillac XT6 Premium Luxury

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

What we do know is that the auto will be based on GM's "BEV3" electric vehicle platform, which means flexibility for use in any type of vehicle, along with front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations.

For the moment, it will say only that the electric SUV's "name and additional details will be revealed closer to launch". This will be the first model derived from GM's future EV platform.

The new platform will be flexible, and adaptable to front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations.

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.

But we can surmise a few things from the announcement.

Cadillac hasn't said when the electric crossover will arrive but a previous report pegged the launch in 2021.

The XT6 will soon be followed by a new Escalade and a new performance sedan.

"We talked about a huge investment in electric vehicles".

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.

Cadillac also showed us the interior of the electric crossover, whose design oozes futuristic cool thanks to minimalist themes and multiple digital screens.

A year ago, GM CEO Mary Barra told investors the company's electric cars would be profitable by 2021-and the company would move forward on a greater range of electric vehicles with that in mind.
