  • 2020 Cadillac XT6

A Cadillac electric auto is the first to ride on GM's next-generation EV platform in 2021.

Cadillac President Steve Carlisle promised that the new model "will bring together luxury and innovation". Though nothing else is yet revealed, it can be safe to assume that it will follow the Cadillac legacy and will be an SUV, or a crossover, albeit with a completely electric powertrain.

On Sunday, Cadillac unveiled pictures of the advanced vehicle, which features a sleek exterior and will be the first model obtained from General Motor's future EV platform. It can also be transformed rapidly, for a "short design and development lead time", allowing the automaker to more quickly respond to changing consumer tastes.

However, electric cars, including battery- and fuel cell-electric cars, are very much the focus of Cadillac's future. "Cadillac will be the tip of the corporate spear on [electric vehicles]", said GM president Mark Reuss.

Microsoft, Walgreens Align To Develop Health-Care Delivery Models 01/16/2019
Pessina said that Amazon's interest in entering the healthcare market was not an incentive for the Walgreens-Microsoft alliance. Checking last 5 years, the company displayed annual EPS growth of 13.00% and expected annual growth of 10.12% for next 5 years.

One interesting space to watch is the low cost or entry-level electric vehicles.

Certainly, Cadillac will face no shortage of competition among luxury electric SUVs by then, with new models hitting the market from Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz this year.

The potential Tesla Model X competitor doesn't yet have a name, nor do we know any of the key specifications including range, price or performance.

CADILLAC made its presence known at the Detroit motor show this week, revealing its first fully electric crossover concept alongside its new road-going - and conventionally powered - XT6 crossover.
