Cadillac unveiled the Lyriq in production guise back in April and it wasn’t until yesterday, September 18, when the reservation process for the luxury electric SUV started. Early adopters have exhibited great interest in getting behind the wheel of the posh EV as the Debut Edition was sold out in a matter of minutes. Even though the reservations are now full, more vehicles will be made available through dealers starting next summer.
Those who have signed up to get the Lyriq Debut Edition have agreed to make a $100 refundable deposit and will have their orders verified from December 2021. They’re in for a long wait as production of the electric SUV won’t kick off before the end of Q1 2022. It’s worth noting the Debut Edition comes exclusively with a rear-wheel-drive layout as production of the AWD variant is scheduled to commence late next year, with customer deliveries earmarked for the beginning of 2023.
