2023 Cadillac Lyriq starts at $62,990, with estimated 312 miles of range

GM has revealed starting prices and released some preliminary range numbers for its 2023 Cadillac Lyriq luxury electric crossover. 

The first fully electric Cadillac costs $62,990, including the $1,195 destination fee, in single-motor rear-wheel-drive form, or $64,990 in dual-motor all-wheel-drive form. And in RWD form it will deliver an estimated (though not yet official) EPA range of 312 miles. 

Those who were eager and waiting when Lyriq reservations opened last year are paying a bit less—$59,990, for a special Debut Edition version that sold out in about 10 minutes. According to dealer sites at the time, it was only offered to 1,500 customers. 

There will be a definite performance boost for the AWD version. While the RWD Lyriq delivers a preliminary 340 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, the AWD Lyriq will deliver at least 500 hp.
