the new model of Cadillac Escalade will be an electric version
According to the latest data, "the fifth" Escalade (here shown long ESV version) will be available only in 2020 as the model 2021-th. A fully electric version will come not immediately, but after some time after starting regular performances.
Concern GM intends to have the portfolio of two dozen electric vehicles by 2023. However, hardly anyone expected that among them will be a giant Cadillac Escalade new (fifth) generation. We are toldthat the insiders tipped him to aspirated V8 6.2 L87, biturbomotor 4.2 LTA and hybrid variation with charging from the wall (with economical "Quartet" or "six"). Now Society says Cadillac: other Escalade will appear in the all-electric modification.
While the electrified version of the model was the Escalade Hybridthat entered the market in 2008 (in the third generation the Escalade) and stayed in the arena until 2014. (In the current, fourth generation, interestingly, this version does not.)
The Escalade will move to the new platform T1XX, like the latest Chevrolet Silverado, but with an important difference: independent suspension front and rear. Obviously, this platform is built on various power settings, but not created from scratch as a "battery". More surprising forecast Society Cadillac — Escalade EV will supposedly be able to run on a single charge of about 400 miles (644 km). This number is needed to compete with the crossover Tesla Model X. That by the time an Escalade EV will certainly be upgraded, says Cadillac Society. And now Model X drives 325 miles.
The hybrid system, the Escalade consisted of engine V8 6.0 LZ1 (turning off half of the cylinders) and two 60-kilowatt electric motors, integrated in a specially designed transmission (multiple planetary gear sets and clutches). The SUV could go only on electric. At such moments, the engines were powered by Nickel-metal hydride batteries. Worked and recovery. Total return — 384 HP, average consumption of 13.0 l/100 km and 19.6 from purely gasoline counterpart.
This story does not preclude the establishment of electric cars, GM electric on specialized platforms. In addition to the models on the "cart" BEV2 from the Bolt (e.g., crossover Bolt EUV) will come out with a whole galaxy of cars improved platform BEV3. According to Green Car Reports, it resembles the basis of The concept of AUTOnomy of 2002. A large crossover on the basis of build, and Cadillac (roughly in 2023-2024 years). Even more interesting is that it will electric pickup. Under which of the brands GM is still unclear. The truck is going to compete with such new products as Rivian R1T and Tesla Pickup. About it this summer, told GM President mark Reuss.
