GM President Mark Reuss recently announced that there will be two electric Escalades coming out in 2024.
The first model is the Escalade IQ and the extended wheelbase model will be called the Escalade IQL.
For some time now, GM has been hinting a future fully electric, full-size Cadillac SUV. Now, during the recent GM Investor Day presentation, GM President Mark Reuss confirmed that such a vehicle is on the way, which should be called the Cadillac Escalade IQ, while its extended-wheelbase variant should be the Escalade IQL. These large, all-electric SUVs are expected to debut sometime during the 2024 calendar year.
“You can imagine what this competes with and where it competes. Again, this will be a pinnacle of design and execution,” said Reuss. “Some of the things we learned on Celestiq will find their way into these vehicles, which I think is going to wow the world once again. Even after the Escalade that we sell today, even in V form, so there’s some great things happening here.”
Speaking of the extended-length variant, “the wheelbase differences we have today and the size base differences we have today on our full-size SUVs, we’re going to do it again in a much more innovative way, though. You’re going to see things here, design, size, platform sharing-wise, but also technology-wise, that will be very different from what we execute today. We’re pretty much finished with the design, and going for production,” Reuss added.
