Cadillac Lyriq EV Reservation & Ordering Discussion

Any confirmation on 2024 pricing with options? It’s pretty easy to add $15-20k options on a Cadillac in the past few years. The AWD base is listed as $64k. Anyone have an idea what this costs optioned out?

There are no options other than colors and wheels.

No EV tax credit for Lyriq purchases. Classified as a car, so exceeds $55k threshold.

Ford and GM will lobby to get this changed.

That sucks
Almost 6k lbs vehicle.

Folks who ordered the Lyriq weren’t even expecting a tax credit back in Sept 2021 (Debut Edition) and May 18-19 2022 (RWD and AWD). I wasn’t. The $62K for a long-ish luxury SUV seemed like a great deal since Model Ys were $66K.

I didn’t get allocated for a MY23 (was very close with my dealer). MY23 pricing released and it’s almost Ford Mach-E gross. Approx $8K increase for the same config as MY23.

I don’t think the Lyriq will be classified as an SUV either. Lacks ground clearance, approach + departure angles, etc.

I guess I’m not getting a Lyriq. I haven’t heard a peep from my dealer and was told I was allocation 1.

Looks like an SUV to me.

And Ioniq 5 is an SUV?


Neither is the EV6. Even many owners agree and call it a hatchback or wagon.

Model Y and Mach-E are SUVs either. Too low ground clearance. I’ve always said the ID.4 was borderline but the closest to SUV hood and the IRS agrees with me :slight_smile:

Ignore that site. IRS is using these rules:

(ii) Is rated at more than 6,000 pounds gross vehicle weight; and

(2) Has at least four of the following characteristics calculated when the automobile is at curb weight, on a level surface, with the front wheels parallel to the automobile’s longitudinal centerline, and the tires inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended pressure -

(i) Approach angle of not less than 28 degrees.

(ii) Breakover angle of not less than 14 degrees.

(iii) Departure angle of not less than 20 degrees.

(iv) Running clearance of not less than 20 centimeters.

(v) Front and rear axle clearances of not less than 18 centimeters each.
