Cadillac has postponed the debut of the Lyriq EV due to Coronavirus. It was originally schedule to take place at an event on April 2 in Los Angeles.

At this rate it seems like the Hummer reveal could be in jeopardy.

A statement from Cadillac regarding the move reads, in part:

"Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to delay the Cadillac LYRIQ reveal in Los Angeles, California on April 2nd. We are currently evaluating a different approach and we hope to show the EV to the world soon. Our top priority is the safety of our media guests and employees."

No rain date has been announced. But if the cancellation of the Geneva motor show is anything to go by, you don't necessarily need a big in-person reveal to get global eyes on your new models. Depending on how long the coronavirus threat continues, we wouldn't write off the possibility of a virtual debut.

Not good. This coronavirus outbreak is just incredible, we now have entire leagues like the NBA shutting down until further notice, no March Madness this year, etc. Schools here in the Cleveland area are all shutting down. It's unbelievable.

I can live without seeing the Lyriq for a while, but I don't think I can handle them postponing the Hummer release lol. AT A MINIMUM, they should livestream the reveal - I've been waiting for this day since the first rumors of Hummer's return broke last June, and I can't wait anymore!

Extreme measures (like what China has been doing) to contain the spread are needed. That way we can at least secure manufacturing and thus be a positive for the economy. Trump must be feeling the pressure now with so much riding on him. If he can put the correct measures in place then situations like this can return to normal.

I hope you're right, @AllTerrain. I don't want to be political here, but I do commend the President on what he's done thus far with the economy, as I've personally felt the effects of this strong economy, but my family's business has also done exceptionally well for the last three years. Seeing how quickly the stock market has bottomed out has been really concerning...I know this isn't your father's stock market, but I'm really hoping that it bounces back. I wonder what Trump could do to help fix this mess?

There's a lot to be optimistic about with this Coronavirus situation.

In Canada, a research team has isolated the virus and can help testing and treatment in a big way.
That's great news. With the best medical minds in the world dedicated to understanding and beating this thing, I don't think the near future is as grim as people are making it out to be. That being said, any older Hummer EV forum members, members with weaker immune systems, and members with a medical history that would make them more susceptible, please take all precautions and stay safe!
