National tour of Cadillac’s first EV, the Lyriq, featured at Kipp Scott in Red Deer

Published on

Car and Driver says “Cadillac’s first electric car brings the comfort and even grace that we expect from the GM luxury brand”

Fans of the iconic Cadillac brand now have an iconic Cadillac EV to enjoy.  It’s called the Lyriq and it definitely sings with style.  Although Canadians will have to wait a few more months to see one in person, a number of enthusiasts were able to enjoy a sneak peek when the Lyriq National Tour made a stop in Red Deer this week.

Visitors were invited to sit in the 2023 Lyriq and enjoy this presentation.

 

 

“Focused on comfort, quietness, and luxury. The cabin is tastefully designed and spacious for passengers” -Car and Driver

It’s really quiet. It’s really smooth. It’s what a Cadillac is supposed to be. – Jay Leno Review

It takes an iconic TV personality and car collector to know an iconic EV Cadillac when he sees one.  Drivers and other admirers will notice an amazing lighting presentation inside the car and around the exterior.

Speaking of lights, those in front of the vehicle when you turn it on, might get a little turned on themselves when they see the Lyriq say “Hello!”.  Push play to see what we mean.

Visitors who stopped by Kipp Scott to experience the Lyriq were greeted in the nearly completed and already beautiful new Cadillac dealership. Several visitors took the opportunity to put their names on the waiting list for the new Lyriq.  Canadian production is ramping up and those who wish to join the list can expect to get their hands on one in the first half of 2023.

Here’s Kipp Scott Cadillac GM Garrett Scott to give the low down on the Lyriq and some instructions on what to do if you’re interested in this surprisingly (maybe shockingly) affordable luxury EV.
