2025 Cadillac Vistiq electric SUV revealed, Australian plans unknown

1 minute, 46 seconds Read

Cadillac continues to expand its line-up of electric SUVs, taking the covers off the seven-seat Vistiq.


US luxury car icon Cadillac has unveiled the Vistiq large SUV, the fourth electric vehicle to join the brand’s line-up as it transitions away from petrol and diesel power.

The latest ‘IQ’-branded Cadillac electric model slots between the five-seat Lyriq and the full-size, seven-seat Escalade IQ, providing seven seats across three rows – though specific details about the Vistiq’s size are yet to be announced.

Given the dimensions of the smaller and larger vehicles in the line-up, it may be the size of a BMW X7 or Mercedes-Benz GLS.

As with Cadillac’s new electric range, the Vistiq features a closed-in grille, vertical daytime-running lights and a unique tail-light signature, setting it apart from the brand’s petrol-powered SUVs such as the XT6.

Spotted by US publication Car and Driver, the Vistiq wears a ‘600E4’ badge. In the smaller Lyriq line-up, this denotes an all-wheel-drive dual-motor drivetrain producing 370kW and 610Nm.

It is not yet known whether the Vistiq will follow the Lyriq and be sold in Australia, with Cadillac due to launch locally next year – marking the end of a 50-plus-year absence for the luxury brand.

Cadillac has only confirmed the Lyriq will be sold locally – and built in right-hand-drive in the US. It may be joined by the smaller Optiq as the company’s next Australian-bound model, given a local trademark has been filed for this vehicle.

Production of the Cadillac Vistiq is due to begin in 2025 for the 2026 Model Year.
