A Cadillac electric vehicle is the first to ride on GM's next-generation EV platform in 2021.

"It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility", explains Cadillac president Steve Carlisle.

GM previously indicated the new electric vehicle platform will go into production in 2021.

Cadillac isn't saying anything in the way of names, prices or battery ranges, but we do know the brand has a product blitz coming in the next few years. It can also be transformed rapidly, for a "short design and development lead time", allowing the automaker to more quickly respond to changing consumer tastes. Cadillac says that what makes this framework different from others are the drive units and battery cells.

One interesting space to watch is the low cost or entry-level electric vehicles.

With such little information shared about the upcoming EV and GM's platform, it's hard not to take the automaker's promises with a grain of salt.

On the eve of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, Cadillac has surprised the media with a first look at an upcoming electric crossover SUV, perhaps the first of many electric vehicles to come for the marque.

The new design will compete directly with Tesla's Model X, the main all-electric crossover now in the market.

A key question is whether the Cadillac name still carries enough cutting-edge cachet to attract high-tech early adopters, or whether those are even the buyers who might be looking for an electric luxury vehicle by 2022.
