Cadillac Keeps Adding Electric Models To Its Lineup

DETROIT – Cadillac’s commitment to electric vehicles keeps increasing. In the past few months, the luxury brand’s EV portfolio has risen by three models, giving it a total five. The latest, announced last week, is the 2026 model-year Vistiq. It’s a three-row SUV “designed for the modern family” that will slot between the Lyriq and the Escalade IQ.

It was back in August that Cadillac revealed its first full-size SUV in the 2025 Escalade IQ, which has an estimated 450 miles of range. In mid-November, it unveiled the 2025 Optiq, a luxury compact SUV. Now comes the Vistiq.

“Vistiq adds another compelling EV to the Cadillac lineup, reinforcing our commitment to an electric future,” said John Roth, vice president of Global Cadillac, in the company’s press release.

“Our brand now has an EV entry in most luxury segments, offering customers a range of choices, and Cadillac EVs will cover most luxury SUV segments across critical global markets in the next two years.”

Cadillac hasn’t provided many details on its upcoming electric SUVs. The company says features and pricing for the Vistiq will be released next year. Details on the Optiq will be released next year as well.

In addition to the Escalade IQ, the Vistiq, the Optiq and the Lyriq, Cadillac also has the ultra-luxury sedan the Celstiq (shown at top and below). It was announced in late October 2022 and described as the “flagship for the brand’s electric future.” The low volume model is “handcrafted” and “personally commissioned.”
