report from last year.
has applied a trademark for the name 'Escalade IQ' dated November 18, 2021.
Filed under "Motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles," the name is
speculated to be used for an all-electric version of the Escalade. As you know,
Cadillac uses the IQ suffix in the name of its electric vehicles, such as the
upcoming Celestiq and the Lyriq.
was brought to light by GM Authority and can be further verified when using the
US Patent and Trademark Office's search tool.
the filing was just recent, GM has confirmed last year that this is happening.
An Escalade-sized electric Cadillac is set to arrive and will ride on the new
GMC Hummer EV's BT1 platform. This platform underpins both the Hummer EV pickup
and SUV, as well as the Chevy Silverado EV that's set to arrive in a few weeks.
Authority also discovered that there was a separate trademark filing for one
'Escalade IQL.' Logic tells us that the Escalade IQ could be the one for the
short-wheelbase version of the EV SUV, while the L stands for the
note, other Cadillac vehicle names filed for trademark include Acsendiq,
Lumistiq, and Vistiq.
before we go deep into believing that Escalade IQ and Escalade IQL will be the
names of the next Cadillac EV SUVs, let's err to the side of caution at this
point. Trademarks aren't always a guarantee that these names will reach
production. They sometimes serve as placeholders, so there's still a chance
that the name or wordmark will differ by the time the production vehicle
know more about the Cadillac EV SUV as soon as official information comes in.
For now, we can be assured that these silent trucks will be built at GM's newly
inaugurated Factory ZERO plant in Michigan.
