Cadillac Lyriq EV Teased

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The silhouette looks pretty good.  And the pop out panel to hide the charging port is kind of cool.

The back end is hideous though.

Those vertical lights just don't do it for me.

I've never been a fan of the knife edge design cues. So Lexus and Cadillac designs turn me off. They need to tone it down a bit. They are so extreme with it that it looks like the creases could cut your hand.

Time for Cadillac to get past this remnant styling cue from the days of the big rear end wings.

It makes good sense: get rid of the rear end styling cue that most people instantly recognize as a Cadillac, because a few posters on a Ford forum hate it...

I didn’t say they should get rid of it, just that I didn’t like it.  And judging by sales over the last decade, many buyers agree.

If this lightened image of the side is accurate, not good. What the hell is going on with the D pillar:

Is that suppose to be a flying buttress design like on the GT? 

 

Not sure - it doesn't appear to have any functional purpose, merely a (poor) styling gimmick.

I don't think so.

The proportions of the spy shots seem off. Are they going for more crossover-like proportions, or more wagon-like proportions? They seem more wagon-like than the previous promise of an "EV crossover".

Another case of beautiful design exercises collecting dust while disharmonious mush comes out of the GM design studio. 

 

15 years ago we discussed the battle over the soul of GM design.... now they're simply searching for it.

Given the current state of GM design, Harley Earl and Bill Mitchell must be rolling over in their graves.

 

This Cadillac isn't likely to change that.
