(Image credit- Tech Times) The Cadillac Escalade, one of the most well-known SUVs in the US and a representation of luxury and performance, is currently undergoing an electric makeover from the firm and GM. The huge SUV would soon make its electric vehicle debut under the name "Escalade IQ," as recently announced by Cadillac in its statement. The clean-energy drivetrain that will power Escalades will soon transform the model's reputation for having V-type engines with loud, powerful noises. Cadillac Escalade IQ is a large SUV electric vehicle (EV) produced by GM Cadillac, a luxury brand renowned for its grace and power, which plans to transform its flagship SUV, the Escalade.

The Escalade IQ bids farewell to its potent 6.2-liter V-8 engine, which has been a defining feature of the model for many years, as part of its transition to electric propulsion. The Cadillac Escalade IQ is anticipated to expand on the venerable Escalade platform's strong 20-year history by reintroducing it in an all-electric guise. Speculations imply that the electric Escalade will launch in 2024, giving buyers a compelling electric option in the large SUV class, according to the reports. The complete unveiling is scheduled for later this year.

Ultium Platform from GM Drives Escalade IQ

The Escalade IQ, which is based on the General Motors (GM) Ultium platform, is the newest addition to Cadillac's expanding line-up of electric vehicles, which also includes the Lyriq and Celestiq EVs. This tactical change toward electrification demonstrates Cadillac's commitment to environmental responsibility and innovation, which is in line with the global trend toward greener transportation.

Cadillac's EV-Offering IQ Line

Cadillac's decision to electrify its vehicles is a reflection of the company's dedication to staying at the cutting edge of innovation as the automotive industry rapidly changes. Cadillac hopes to provide customers with a sophisticated and powerful driving experience while lessening their environmental footprint by embracing electric powertrains. The Lyriq, a crossover that was scheduled to go on sale in 2022, was the first electric "Cadi" to be announced during the pandemic. It debuted on the market with a rear-wheel drive model last year, but an all-wheel drive model will follow this year.

Additionally, the EV architecture permits more internal room and design options, perhaps boosting Escalade's well-known elegance and comfort.   Being the third EV to hit the market, Cadillac's entry into the electric SUV segment represents the start of a new era for the firm. The Escalade IQ, which will be built on GM's Ultium platform, is expected to deliver a big luxury vehicle with a clean-energy drivetrain for families and groups of friends.
