That would be an all-new, fully electric vehicle for Cadillac.

GM is vowing to reposition Cadillac as an EV brand.

For now, scope out the two images and stay tuned to as we update the site tonight and into tomorrow.

General Motors had recently revealed that its electrification push would be led by the luxury brand Cadillac.

The key will be GM's modular EV platform, which the automaker refers to as BEV3.

"Cadillac's EV will hit the heart of the crossover market and meet the needs of customers around the world", said Steve Carlisle, president of Cadillac. The company did not share any details, however it said it will announced the same "closer to launch". "It will represent the height of luxury and innovation while positioning Cadillac as the pinnacle of mobility". We've just seen the reveal of the XT6 and also in the pipeline are a redesigned Escalade plus new CT4 and CT5 sedans. Overall, Cadillac will introduce new models at the rate of roughly one every six months through 2021. But, other body styles will follow this crossover, and in short succession too - aforementioned flexibility means each future EV will have a short design and development time. We're told this platform will feature battery and drive units designed for "maximum usability" throughout GM cars across different countries.

What we do know is that the auto will be based on GM's "BEV3" electric vehicle platform, which means flexibility for use in any type of vehicle, along with front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations.
