Cadillac's Escalade EV is Set for 2025

An electric Escalade is set for production in 2025—and while we may only have hints as to what this SUV will feature, chances are, as Cadillac’s flagship vehicle, the electric Escalade will come fully loaded. Learn more about what this EV might feature.

Having set its sights on increasing EV production in the coming years, GM announced that an electric
Cadillac
Escalade is coming in 2025, alongside the internal combustion (ICE) version. Following the wildly popular
Hummer EV
, an electric Escalade could be wildly popular among luxury SUV drivers. 
While all the details about this upcoming luxury SUV aren’t known, it will be produced in Michigan and will be outfitted with GM’s top-of-the-line Ultium batteries. 
Whether it does well against other luxury EVs will depend primarily on battery range, drivability, and price. While we don’t have all the details, here’s a tantalizing look at the 2025 electric Escalade. 

The electric Escalade’s 3 motors 

The Hummer EV flaunts a cool 1,000 hp thanks to its triplet electric motors, which each crank out 342 hp apiece. These motors can push the EV from 0-60 in four to five seconds. Considering that the electric Escalade will be near the top of GM’s Cadillac lineup, it’s assumed by
Top Electric SUV
  that this EV will also be outfitted with three motors, each powering both the front and rear wheels. 
In addition to its three powerful electric motors, the electric Escalade will likely have all-wheel and rear-wheel drive availability, as well as an integrated drivetrain made with silicon carbide to reduce the vehicle’s curb weight.
While we haven’t been given any sneak peeks at what might be under the hood of the electric Escalade, it’s unlikely that GM is going to skimp on power when it comes to their flagship Cadillac. 

An Ultium battery could offer a 400-plus mile range  

Battery range is often cited as one of the limiting factors in people’s unwillingness to purchase an EV, so if Cadillac wants the electric Escalade to sell, they’re going to need to offer drivers an extended battery range that matches the mpg rating of an ICE Escalade. 
The electric Escalade is also likely to have DC
fast-charging
capability, which means that 10 minutes of charging will equate to a 100-mile range. With over 400 miles worth of traveling capability, this could turn a lot of drivers’ heads—after all, a Tesla Model X or Model S rarely surpasses 370 miles per charge. 
Compared to the Range Rover EV, the electric Escalade may trounce its overseas opponent. Autoweek predicts the Range Rover EV will likely only have a 300-mile battery range and offer (only) 600-plus horsepower. In terms of price, they’ll likely be closely met, starting north of $100,000.
