Cadillac announces fourth new electric SUV due in 2026 : The Vistiq

Enlarge / I’m not 100 percent sure, but it looks a lot like the Vistiq will be a three-row SUV.


Cadillac’s product planners sure love the letter Q. Last year, the American luxury automaker started building the Lyriq, a rather competent midsize electric SUV. Last month, it revealed plans for an entry-level electric crossover called the Optiq, which goes on sale next year. And today, it tells us there’s another new SUV due in model year 2026, called the Vistiq.

Size-wize, the Vistiq slots between the Lyriq and the ginormous Escalade IQ due for model year 2025—the brand recognition on that name is far too good to Q-icize it directly. Although we have no details other than the model year and the name right now, there’s a fairly good chance the Vistiq will be an electric analogue to the Cadillac XT6.

(Similarly we have no further details on the Optiq yet other than that it will share the same smaller crossover architecture as the forthcoming Chevrolet Equinox and will arrive in 2024.)

“Vistiq adds another compelling EV to the Cadillac lineup, reinforcing our commitment to an electric future,” said John Roth, vice president of Global Cadillac. “Our brand now has an EV entry in most luxury segments, offering customers a range of choices, and Cadillac EVs will cover most luxury SUV segments across critical global markets in the next two years.”

Cadillac says that it will announce pricing for the Vistiq some time next year.
