Kristian Aquilina, Managing Director, Cadillac International Operations and Cadillac Middle East said: “Our journey to an all-electric future starts now, with the epitome of sophistication, the exquisite LYRIQ. Powered by General Motor’s Ultium platform and curated with over 120 years of Cadillac’s design craftmanship, it combines looks, performance, advanced technology and exclusivity to provide an unparalleled driving experience. With LYRIQ Al Awael, the first electric vehicle to reach our region, we invite loyalists, pioneers and optimists to inaugurate the new era of luxury electric mobility and lead the way forward.”

Cadillac LYRIQ Al Awael is available with premier technologies and stirring performance capabilities enabled by the vehicle’s dedicated electric architecture. A 12-module, 102 kilowatt-hour battery pack and an all-wheel-drive Ultium Platform deliver a Cadillac estimated 500 horsepower and 610 Nm of torque, and a range of approximately 494 km with a full charge¹.

Aesthetically, LYRIQ Al Awael is a sight to behold. The interior is clean and simple with a focus on secondary and tertiary design elements, including intricate laser etched patterns through wood over metal décor, which has never been done before. The large, curved 33” diagonal advanced LED screen is the centerpiece, alongside the distinctive black crystal grille, and all the components are incorporated artfully, blurring the lines of separation among technology, lighting and décor.

A limited number of orders will be accepted. Aspiring owners across UAE and Kuwait are encouraged to claim their spot quickly to be amongst the first to join this new epoch of driving in the Middle East.
