Caddy to Offer Escalade EV with 400-Mile Range?
General Motors Co.’s Cadillac unit is planning an all-electric variant of the next-generation Escalade SUV, sources tell Cadillac Society.
The electric Escalade is targeting a 400-mile driving range and will feature an enhanced version of Cadillac’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving technology, according to the online enthusiast publication.
The fifth-generation Escalade is due next year as a 2021 model. But the electric iteration isn’t expected until sometime later, to take advantage of advanced battery technologies, Cadillac Society says.
In January, GM appointed Cadillac as its lead EV brand. The luxury marque plans to launch a new crossover vehicle in 2021 that will be the first to ride on the carmaker’s “BEV3” dedicated EV platform, which eventually will be used to carry 11 body variants.
Sandy Munro and his team of engineers and costing analysts at Munro & Associates were contacted by UBS Research—an arm of the giant banking and investment firm—and asked whether it was possible to do a teardown and cost assessment of the Chevrolet Bolt EV.
The little car that could still can. And this time as a car that not only gets great fuel economy, but which has ride and handling that makes it more than an econo-box (and its styling is anything but boxy).
Ford has made an accomplishment that will never be bested, never even be tied.
