    Detroit 2019: Cadillac's First Fully Electric Vehicle

      Shown, but yet to be named.

    During the reveal of the 2020 Cadillac XT6, Cadillac also took the wraps off a yet to be named Cadillac EV.  This will be the first car on the new BEV3 platform that was announced just a few days ago at the GM Investors meeting. 

    The new BEV3 platform is capable of FWD, RWD, or AWD variants and can be spun into many different body styles as customer tastes change.  Technical details will be released at a later date

    Not as good looking as a Porsche or Mercedes SUV.  This looks to be early concept, they could be a couple years away from dealerships still. 

    Without an technical details we don’t have much to go on but this is a vehicle they need for sure.

    Shown, like an actual vehicle?

    Or a rendering of one? 

    Because the picture above looks like a computer generated and pixelated  photograph. 

    In just curious, because pictures have a nasty habit of changing how the actual physical concept will look like and from there, actual physical concepts have the unfortunate luck in looking waaaay different than their real life selves that will go on sale a year later...

    In that picture, the EV in question does look nice.  For a CUV that is...

    Im excited to read about (and obviously actually see)  how that platform will be flexible and what vehicles it will accommodate.

    I also am very excited to see what tech this will be packing.  Battery size and range. Performance specs as compared to Tesla and Porsche and Mercedes etc...

    What electronic gizmos and internet connectivity and internet upgrades GM will be doing (if any)  to compete with Tesla, etc. (Not that I personally value those things, Im just curious on how the other players such as GM and Porsche etc, other than Tesla will go about their EV business...) 

    Let the EV games begin.

    Looks 15 years newer than any other EV SUV... now just build it LIKE SHOWN.

    Looks truly futuristic IMO. Like Blade Runner futuristic. Very cool. Hope that it just flops out the Cadillac womb like it looks right now.

    Better than some other SUV's that look like they flopped out of another bodily orifice.

    I hope they take this chance to go with NAMES on the new EV products. This would be a good time for Cadillac to embrace their Heritage and bring names to the EVs and leave Johann mess of Cadillac to die off on the ICE world.

    • Yeah, it doesn’t pass the sniff test at all. No vehicle, not even a full size SUV, takes even 10 minutes to fill up much less 22. That doesn’t even qualify as making sense to believe it takes 22 minutes to fill up ANY vehicle that only has four tires on it. 
    • I've literally timed myself AND posted it here at one time. I don't know if your PNW nozzles are the size of a drinking straw, but it never takes more than 5 minutes at a pump.  You have lost your mind if you think you'll convince any human that you've stood at a pump for TWENTY-TWO MINUTES just filling up an Escalade. There a 100% chance you're lying if you're saying it took you 22 minutes to fill-up an Escalade from E every time.  Damn. 14 minutes. That's a good 9-10 minutes longer than it would take to fill-up most anything with a gasoline engine.  @Drew Dowdell, your Avalanche probably has the same or very similar size gas tank of an Escalade, right? Do you stand there for 20 minutes or more regularly? 
    • FUD - Unless your driving a subcompact, 5 minute fueling is not true. Compacts to Midsize to Full size can take from 8 to 22 minutes to fuel. If the filters of the gas station are dirty, it can take longer. Yes I realize not everyone drives an Escalade ESV, but that is 22 minutes of standing and fueling at Costco, longer at other stations it seem to be. Yes, I spent a few minutes waiting, but over all I got all my shopping done, so a few minutes was no different than at a gas station. I charged this morning for the wife, was 52 degrees outside and the 350kW Electrify America charger did the 80% charge from 14% in 15 minutes and then I left to go get the grandkids and drop them off at school, so the 10 to 80% charge is fast as my Escalade.
    • You just said you still had to wait a few minutes after you were done shopping. That few minutes is all it takes to go from E -> F in an internal combustion vehicle. Until you're charging at home, overnight, there is no real savings or convenience involved. Once your free trial period of public charging has expired, it costs about the same to charge publicly at those fast chargers.  At home charging is really the only way to save money and time with an EV, when it comes to fuel costs.
