Nothing really exceptional. A crossover like any other. The Cadillac grille in its minimal expresion... This car can be a Volvo, a Mitsubishi, a Hyundai...

That could be said for any crossover unless they draw-up outlandish design features as some do to their detriment. At least Cadillac offers a tasteful design with distinctive Cadillac motifs intact. My guess is that the production version will be a bit more sedate.

I know, I know, it's the competition and I shouldn't be caught saying nice things about their products but I just call 'em as I see 'em. We haven't seen Lincoln's first fully electric vehicle preview but if trends continue as they have, a Lincoln BEV crossover should look at least as good as, if not better than this.

Re: Cadillac Previews Its First Fully Electric Vehicle

Hopefully we see a Lincoln EV soon. The quietness of an EV drivetrain just seems perfect for Quiet Luxury.

Actually, I would expect that so I'm not sure that that's the surprise. An all electric F-150 option would be a surprise.

Well, we have a year to wait.

Hopefully Cadillac will have better luck than that Chevy-Volt-rebadged thingy. What an abortion that was.

The ELR, was Volt based. I looked at one of the updated ones and it really wasnt that bad, but definitely wasnt worth the 76k asking price.

Iīm sure when Ford have a good EV platform that deserve the Lincoln badge, will be an Electric Lincoln. Must be a big crossover, with the Continental name and "coach doors".
