    Cadillac Escala Patent

    Cadillac has uploaded and patented the Escala body.



    Could be more than hinting that the Cadillac Halo car will be very close to the Escala design?

    Could also just be protecting their IP so no one else can use it.

    Re: Cadillac Escala Patent

    Filed in March 2017, shown in 2016. Why'd they wait?

    At first I thought it was shorter than Escala and might be the CT5, but i was wrong.

    They didn't patent the wheel design, but maybe they do those separately.

    What's interesting is that this patent has a third date - Aug 2018.

    Maybe just for IP, or it could be for the recently talked about Halo EV, and the Escala design is going to be used for the vehicle.

    I believe the August date is when it was awarded.

    Just like how the new 8 series looks nothing like a BMW, this looks nothing like a Cadillac

    It's almost 2019, you're about 15 years too late to realize your dream.

    So, you are willing to pay luxury flagship money for a Chevy?
    I am on the border of genius and crazy. I keep trying to cross over into genius, but ICE keeps sending me back to the crazy side of the border.
