Cadillac has brought its first-ever electric vehicle, the LYRIQ, to the UAE and Kuwait. The new model will roll out first as a special edition called Al Awael — meaning “the firsts” in Arabic.

The carmaker initially launched the LYRIQ in the USA and China before unveiling the EV in the Middle East. The limited edition version of this hotly-anticipated SUV comes in a Celestial Metallic armor color, with an Oxford Stone interior, exclusive badging, and a panoramic roof. Single-motor rear-wheel drive and dual-motor (500hp) all-wheel-drive versions are available, with the former achieving up to 494 km of range per charge from its 102-kilowatt-hour battery.

The Al Awael’s interior features laser-etched patterns on its wood-over-metal décor, plus a large, curved 33-inch diagonal LED screen. On-board tech includes built-in Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while Active Noise Cancellation intelligently assesses wind and vibration and uses a premium AKG speaker system to cancel road-induced noise.

“With LYRIQ Al Awael, the first electric vehicle to reach our region, we invite loyalists, pioneers, and optimists to inaugurate the new era of luxury electric mobility and lead the way forward,” he added.
