Could the Eldorado return as an electric car?
The shift coincides with a plan to have Cadillac help lead GM's transition to electric vehicles. Crosstown rival Lincoln recently began a similar switch with the reintroduction of the Continental nameplate, followed by Nautilus, Corsair and Aviator.
"We're entering the decade as an internal-combustion-engine brand," Carlise said. "We'll exit the decade as a battery-electric brand. It's the end of the ICE age for Cadillac."
Cadillac will soon debut an electric crossover utility vehicle that will be the first built on a GM platform that can be adapted to different sizes and equipped with front, rear or all-wheel-drive. So far, it has only been shown in design sketches and remains unnamed, but it's possible that a production version could arrive by 2022.
Aside from the Escalade, the last Cadillac to use a name was the DeVille sedan of 2005. Carlisle didn't indicate if the plan is to resurrect classic Cadillac names or create new ones.
