Cadillac Vistiq 2026: three-row electric SUV the next move from the American luxury brand


The American automaker is continuing its EV-focused push with a new three-row electric SUV with Ultium underpinnings 

Luxury American automaker Cadillac has confirmed its next electric vehicle, the three-row Vistiq SUV. 

Positioned between the Lyriq SUV and the Escalade IQ SUV, the Vistiq is stated to be able to accommodate seven people. 

Although unconfirmed, it’s likely that the Vistiq SUV will ride on General Motors’ Ultium battery platform, an architecture that also underpins the Lyriq SUV and even the Hummer EV.

Cadillac is yet to confirm battery size or range, however the larger electric Escalade IQ model reportedly has up to 450 miles of range (720km). 

That range indication isn’t necessarily unreachable, as the Ultium batteries can be up to 200kWh usable in size. 

For a three-row SUV like the Vistiq, a larger battery than some other applications is almost a given.

Further news on pricing, specification and potential availability for Australia is yet to be announced. 

Cadillac is all systems go for Australia

Last month, Cadillac confirmed its plans to re-enter the Australian market in 2024 and is set to launch the Cadillac Lyriq electric SUV as its first model on local shores. 

Cadillac has committed to several EVs globally, including the large luxury Celestiq limousine and the Optiq, a smaller electric SUV.

For our local market, the Cadillac Escalade IQ has been trademarked, but is unconfirmed at this early stage. 

Cadillac is aiming to compete with other long-standing luxury automakers such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Genesis.

It’ll be the first time since 1969 that Cadillacs have been sold on Australian shores.
