Cadillac OPTIQ EV Luxury Compact SUV (2025)

Cadillac has unveiled the 2025 OPTIQ, redefining entry-level luxury within its lineup. This competitively priced luxury SUV is set to join Cadillac’s expanding electric vehicle portfolio, which already includes the LYRIQ, ESCALADE IQ, CELESTIQ, and the upcoming VISTIQ. The OPTIQ promises to carry forward Cadillac’s legacy of luxury with several segment-leading features.

“Cadillac has always defined American luxury, and OPTIQ is an example of how our bold, innovative spirit is propelling us into the EV future,” said John Roth, vice president, Global Cadillac. “Over the past five years, Cadillac has welcomed approximately 1 million new customers to the family globally, while our percentage of younger buyers has increased 5% in the U.S. OPTIQ will be an important gateway to attract luxury EV intenders to Cadillac as we look to offer a fully electric portfolio by the end of the decade.”

Thrilling yet Agile Performance
The OPTIQ will debut with a standard dual motor all-wheel drive system, ensuring a dynamic and agile driving experience. The 6-inch shorter wheelbase compared to the LYRIQ enhances maneuverability, while the Ultium Platform supports near-instantaneous torque for spirited driving. The 85-kilowatt-hour battery pack provides a Cadillac-estimated 300-mile range, with DC fast charging adding up to 79 miles of range in just 10 minutes.

Unique Design Detailing
The OPTIQ blends sporty aesthetics with sophisticated Cadillac styling. Key exterior features include a fixed-glass roof, a signature black crystal grille with laser-etched patterns, and a precision-patterned rear quarter panel window. The vehicle’s lighting choreography greets and bids farewell to the driver, enhancing the luxury experience.

Customer-Focused Tech and Interior
Inside, the OPTIQ offers a high-tech, luxurious cabin. Notable features include a 33-inch diagonal advanced LED display with 9k resolution, Super Cruise driver assistance technology, and a standard 19-speaker AKG Audio System with Dolby Atmos. Innovative materials, such as 100% recycled fabric and PaperWood veneer, highlight Cadillac’s commitment to sustainability.
