An Electric Cadillac Escalade Is In The Works But Still Years Away From The Road
July 22, 2019
*Full Article at LinkSpeaking with Cadillac Society on the basis on anonymity, sources purportedly familiar with future product plans at Cadillac claim that GM’s luxury brand will offer the Escalade in all-electric guise after the fifth-generation model launches for the 2021 model year.
Details about the powertrain set to be used by this electric Escalade remain uncertain but by the time the vehicle launches, there will likely be a number of large electric SUVs on the market. To ensure it is competitive with rivals such as the Tesla Model X, Cadillac will probably look to offer the vehicle with upwards of 400 miles (643 km) of range. Given the size of the Escalade, we would expect the vehicle to feature one electric motor driving the front axle and one electric motor powering the rear axle.
