- cadillac’s 2022 lyriq electric suv will have a 33-inch display that spans most of the dash.
- the display will look like a single continuous screen, but it will actually be broken up into three parts under the same piece of curved glass.
- the lyriq will go into production in 2022.
cadillac wants to make sure its first electric vehicle gets noticed. with that in mind, the automaker has shared images of the gigantic curved 33-inch display that will cover most of the dashboard of the upcoming lyriq ev.
the electric suv's curved 33-inch oled display will serve as the infotainment system, instrument gauge, and control for lighting and hud to the left of the steering wheel. cadillac says that while the giant screen is separated into three individual displays, the entire screen can be used as a single unit—likely while the car is stopped and charging. bill thompson, gm senior design manager for ui, told electrek: "the size of the cadillac lyriq display is a huge differentiator for us. the form factor is going to be very industry-leading. the huge 33-inch display is a very big differentiator for us, even among the other brands in our portfolio."
thompson noted that the vehicle will have electric-vehicle routing built in and that the ui will "integrate those kinds of peace-of-mind features." he also said the system will integrate more human-centered information and alerts around gm's hands-free driver-assist system, super cruise.
the infotainment and lighting-control portion of the display will be touchscreens. as on the escalade, a rotary controller in the center console will control aspects of the infotainment system. the lyriq concept also had displays for the passengers in the rear of the vehicle. no word on what features those displays will have or if they'll even make it into production.
the cadillac lyriq will be the first gm vehicle built on the automaker's new ev platform using the ultium battery system. the lyriq will make its debut during a virtual event on august 6. it goes into production in 2022.
