I'm happy to have what we do have. I did also order one. I went with the white frost tricoat, black interior and 22s in the RWD configuration. To me I want the camera mirror and extended range vs having AWD.
Nice, congratulations, where you live RWD is fine, where I live it could be a problem at times. Any guess on the number of orders they took? I saw on the Lyriq forum guys guessing 10K, but I think the number was way bigger then that. I would guess 25-50K, Hopefully GM will say something before the next earnings call.

Thank you. I'm excited to get it. I still have my Hummer reservation because who knows what could happen and need to keep my options open. We were on a call and they said it was between 16,000 to 18,000 Lyriqs was the number between the two versions.
Interesting, that number seems lower then I would have expected

Must mean they are trying to keep Cadillac somewhat exclusive. I'm expecting at least double that for the equinox
I am just doing math, GM says they will sell 75k+ EV in 2022, 50K of which will be Bolt, where do the other 25K plus come from? GM says they will sell 300K in 2023, you do the math?


Maybe they took conservative number of reservations in case ramping is slower than expected, or its also possible they will switch to 2024 model year early next year. Maybe align with 2024 Blazer and 2024 Equinox debut which will start production in March and June.

By my math I think they plan to sell at least 10K Hummers and 10K Lyriq's this year to get close to those numbers ? Next Year I have no idea how they get to 300K, the math just does not work 80k Bolt, 50K Lyriq, 50K Hummer-SilveradoE-SierraE, 50K Blazer / Equinox is still way short, what am I missing?

I think there is an "unannounced" Cadillac that will slot below the lyriq. I'd guess they don't want to sabotage lyriq orders so are waiting to announce it.
Yes, you are right, the C-SUV Cadillac will start production in mid 2024 from Ramos Azipe MX, it will ramp up after Honda Prologue. So that plant will have Blazer, Equinox, Prologue, and the C-SUV Cadillac. Capacity of about 250K for all 4.

from a Detroit Free Press article today...
Cadillac leaders said they expected to convert about 10% of those hand-raisers to purchase orders. And, earlier this year, GM told suppliers to prepare to produce 25,000 Lyriqs this year. The Lyriq is the cornerstone for Cadillac as it is the first of GM's brands to go all-electric by 2030.

Sounds like GM plans to do more then 16K

The 60% number they mention is accurate. It's 60% of all XT4, XT5 and XT6 sales for our prior year. The 40% of people choosing a specific dealership is not accurate at all. The correct 2nd part is 40% of all EV registrations in the dealer's district will be how they are allocating Lyriqs. Basically, they are combining our SUV sales with District EV numbers to determine how many we get.
Wow, so shipping lots to CA, and FL, is how I read that 40%?

That is correct. They had originally done luxury EV registrations for their number, but changed it to all EV registrations.
I am seeing lots of complaints across Lyriq forums with the new reservations systems and dealers no setting prices, telling customers "market value will be determined at the time the car goes on sale" , this is not good for GM..

That's crazy there are still dealers doing this. This is part of the form we have to send off to Cadillac with Lyriq orders. First check box is GM strongly advises agreeing on price.

Read through, its gross to me that dealers pull this crap...
