While Chevrolet propelled the Volt plug-in hybrid and pure-electric Bolt, Cadillac has assumed a lower priority in GM’s electric vehicle push. Presently as it endeavors to discover benefits in that fragment, the organization’s zap designs will put extravagance first. In an update for investors released on Friday (PDF), the company said:
“Cadillac will be GM’s lead electric vehicle brand and will introduce the first model from the company’s all-new battery electric vehicle architecture, GM’s foundation for an advanced family of profitable EVs.
The flexible platform will provide a broad array of body styles and will be offered in front-wheel, rear-wheel and all-wheel configurations. Its most critical components — including the battery cells — are being designed for maximum usability across all programs. The battery system will also be adjustable, based on vehicle and customer requirements.”
For a couple of years Cadillac sold an ELR cross breed car that was reprimanded for being overrated at $75,0000 – $35,000 more than the Volt that mutual its powertrain. Its follow-up CT6 Plug-In Hybrid hasn’t fared much better. The “adaptable stage” alluded to is called BEV3, a trade for BEV2 (Battery Electric Vehicle 2), which the Bolt depends on.
