It needs to serve the purpose of long-distance travel, which means 400 miles of range would be a reasonable amount.
According to Cadillac Society, the upcoming 5th generation of the Cadillac Escalade will be offered with three powertrain options, including an all-electric option.
The electric version will not be available right from the start in 2021, but will come at some point a bit later on.
Anyways, the most important hint from unofficial sources is that expected range of Cadillac Escalade EV will be upwards of 400 miles (644 km), which when taking into consideration size and weight of the Escalade, suggests a huge battery pack.
Currently, the only electric SUV on the U.S. market - Tesla Model X offers 325 miles (523 km) of range using 100 kWh battery.
We look forward to more long-range, large electric vehicles such as SUVs and trucks. Both segments are super hot and this will surely increase electric vehicle adoption.
