Cadillac debuts first brand EV at Detroit Auto Show

To solidify that statement, the company has put out two new images that show a crossover concept of its first-ever all-electric SUV. According to the company-issued report, this Cadillac EV will be based on GM's next-gen EV architecture.

Automakers have to sell electric vehicles at prices comparable to cars that run on gasoline or they wouldn't be able to achieve sales volume, Carlisle said.

It'll take the form of a crossover because of course it will, and it will sit on GM's future electric vehicle platform.

The EV's name and specific details regarding its powertrain and range will be revealed closer to an also yet-unspecified launch window.

"Cadillac will be the tip of the corporate spear on [electric vehicles]", said GM president Mark Reuss. "It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility".

Amir Khan finalises deal to challenge Terence Crawford for WBO world title
He said the location of the fight is not set yet but that it would take place in Las Vegas or at Madison Square Garden in NY . Khan will attend a press conference in the capital before immediately flying out to the U.S. to start a training camp.

GM says it is developing battery cells and drive units that can be used across different GM vehicle lineups across the globe.

GM's future EV platform, which Cadillac will be the first to use, will be flexible, allowing the company to respond quickly to customer preferences with a relatively short design and development lead time.

Cadillac also announced a new XT6 crossover and shared plans for a revised Escalade and a performance sedan.

It can accommodate front-, rear-, or all-wheel drive configurations, and the battery system output can be varied depending on the specific vehicle and the needs of its buyers.

That could be a challenge to Tesla and its Model X sport-utility vehicle with gull wing doors, especially with other all electric luxury SUVs in the auto maker pipeline.
