Cadillac introduced three electric vehicles last year and is set to have a fully electric lineup by 2030. This has left people wondering about the future of V-Series, but we’ll be getting answers soon enough.

During a media briefing earlier today, officials revealed “performance is part of Cadillac’s brand promise” so they’ll “offer performance variants no matter the propulsion [system].” The company then announced plans to show an “interpretation of what a V-Series would look like in EV form” later this year.

Officials were coy on specifics, but their message was clear as an electric V-Series is coming, presumably in concept form. However, little is known about it at this point.

We’ll learn more in the coming months, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Cadillac eventually offers an Escalade IQ V. The standard model debuted last summer with a dual motor all-wheel drive system that produces up to 750 hp (559 kW / 760 PS) and 785 lb-ft (1,063 Nm) of torque in Velocity Max mode.

That’s nothing to sneeze at, but the GMC Hummer EV SUV has a tri-motor all-wheel drive system with 830 hp (619 kW / 842 PS). It’s also worth noting the pickup variant launched with 1,000 hp (746 kW / 1,014 PS) and that allowed for a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time of approximately three seconds.

To put those numbers into perspective, the ICE-powered Escalade-V has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 682 hp (508 kW / 691 PS). It enables the SUV to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 4.4 seconds, which is roughly on par with the Escalade IQ that accomplishes the same task in less than five seconds.

There have also been rumors about a Lyriq-V, so only time will tell what Cadillac has up their sleeve. However, fans can rest easy as the performance sub-brand will continue to flourish in the electric era.
