Cadillac Lyriq Production Began This Week
Today is more than the first day of Spring. It's also the second day of production for the Cadillac Lyriq vehicle at General Motors' Spring Hill, Tennessee, assembly plant.

Yesterday, GM held a celebration at the factory where the Lyriq is produced.

"The ceremony, which was attended by GM President Mark Reuss, Cadillac Vice President Rory Harvey and Tennessee Governor Bill Lee, provided new details on the production capabilities of the Spring Hill plant. The facility, which underwent a $2 billion renovation to prepare for the Lyriq’s arrival, has a capacity of just under 200,000 units a year combining all nameplates that it currently produces. This includes the combustion engine vehicles built there, which comprise the Cadillac XT5 and XT6 and the GMC Acadia, as well as the Cadillac Lyriq. The assembly line at the plant is also flexible, so additional production capacity can be added for the Lyriq if the demand is there – although this would come at the expense of some ICE vehicle production capacity. GM expects to produce roughly 25,000 examples of the Lyriq this year." (Source:

Spring Hill is now GM’s third North American vehicle manufacturing site to produce EVs, joining the Factory Zero plant in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan, and Orion Assembly in Orion Township, Michigan. (Source:

GM will open up the order banks for regular production orders of the Lyriq on crossover on May 19th.

A sold-out Cadillac Lyriq Debut Edition will appear at dealers first before the new orders are built.
