Cadillac Global Vice President Rory Harvey on the release of the Lyriq model and how the company plans to go all-electric by 2035

Cadillac has closed the books on the first year of production for its Lyriq electric SUV.

The automaker began taking orders for the $62,990 five-passenger utility vehicle on May 19, but announced on Wednesday that any new ones placed will be for 2024 model year vehicles.

Production of the Lyriq is already underway at GM's Spring Hill, Tennessee, factory ahead of the start of delivery in the coming weeks.

The factory's production capacity will be ramped up and increased into next year to help meet expected demand, which is expected to be high after a quarter-million people told Cadillac they were interested in buying one.
