General Motors (GM) CEO Mary Barra told investors ahead of the show Friday that the company is working on an all-electric Cadillac. To solidify that statement, the company has put out two new images that show a crossover concept of its first-ever all-electric SUV.
Shares of Tesla (TSLA) tumbled 2.4 percent as manufacturers from Detroit to Japan unveiled new competition for buyers in the electric vehicle maker's key market at the Detroit Auto Show. This will be the first model derived from GM's future EV platform.
Cadillac hasn't said when the electric crossover will arrive but a previous report pegged the launch in 2021. The brand has also confirmed that "a variety" of electric cars based on the BEV3 platform will be added to its lineup.

Greek Defence Minister Resigns Ahead Of Macedonia Name Vote
Macedonia's parliament ratified the name change deal on Friday, but it will not go into effect until Athens does the same. It included Greek and Slavic areas and was split into three administrative units, but the concept of Macedonia persisted.
"It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility", explains Cadillac president Steve Carlisle. We're told this platform will feature battery and drive units designed for "maximum usability" throughout GM cars across different countries. Its arrival is part of an aggressive product cadence at Cadillac that will see one new model launched roughly every six months through 2021.
GM's future EV platform, which Cadillac will be the first to use, will be flexible, allowing the company to respond quickly to customer preferences with a relatively short design and development lead time. The EVs can be configured in front-, rear- or all-wheel drive, and the output of their battery systems will be adjustable based on vehicle and customer needs.
The potential Tesla Model X competitor doesn't yet have a name, nor do we know any of the key specifications including range, price or performance.
