The General Motors (GM) subsidiary recently showcased a few pictures teasing enthusiasts with what looks like a full-blown electric SUV.
The automaker announced on Friday that the first model will feature GM's new battery electric vehicle architecture, which will lay the foundation for a "family of profitable EVs".
Cadillac's new electric vehicle announcement follows the brand's push to advance automobiles. However, these are mere speculations, with no official confirmation given by the company.

"Cadillac's EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world", said Cadillac president Steve Carlisle.
The company promises that the auto will feature advanced drive units and battery cells that work optimally in all of GM's diverse markets.
