GM announced on Friday that Cadillac will be the company's lead EV brand.

General Motors' luxury brand Cadillac is beginning a full-on assault on brand identification in order to take back America's hearts as a status symbol for opulence.

General Motors positions Cadillac as a pioneer of a new era of all-electric vehicle development. "It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility".

While there has been talk for over a decade that Cadillac will be relaunched in Australia, GM Holden appears no closer to making it happen after the reintroduction was postponed during the global financial crisis in 2008.

Today's announcement is part of Cadillac's aggressive product acceleration announced this week - in addition to revealing the all-new XT6 crossover, the company also hinted at both a future Escalade and an upcoming performance sedan. The name of the electric auto as well as all additional (technical) details will follow later, closer to the launch date.

The EV is still nameless though GM says it is the first vehicle with the automaker's future EV platform.

The framework can be used to adjust the power train in different configurations including front-wheel, rear and all-wheel drive. Cadillac aims to launch a new vehicle every six months from now until 2021.
