Cadillac is ready to unveil quite a few EVs within the subsequent few years.
Cadillac is planning to launch quite a few electrical autos within the coming years, beginning with the Lyriq SUV. Following that, Cadillac says it’s going to give us the Celestiq — a four-door flagship sedan. However that is not all, if a patent submitting uncovered by Cadillac Society is any indication. Cadillac might have one other EV in retailer, and it will possible be known as, uh, Symboliq.
Trademark purposes for each Symboliq and Cadillac Symboliq have been filed with the Swiss Federal Institute of Mental Property, Cadillac Society reported July 24. Each fall below the “motorized land autos, specifically cars” class.

The title Symboliq undoubtedly follows within the bizarre footsteps of Lyriq and Celestiq as ending-in-Q names that we by no means sort accurately on the primary attempt. Because the different two apply to future electrical automobiles, we are able to solely assume the Symboliq will likely be an EV, as effectively.
Then once more, at this level, we have given up on making an attempt to know Cadillac’s naming conventions. Lately, the corporate went to a CT- and XT-based construction for its sedans and SUVs — besides the Escalade, which is exempt. Then it utilized bizarre numerical designations to every mannequin based mostly on its engine’s torque output… in Newton-meters… rounded as much as the closest 50. So in a manner it is good to see Cadillac — or is that Cadillaq? — going again to phrases, even when they’re oddly spelled.
The Cadillac Lyriq EV is scheduled to debut in early August.
