Cadillac plans new electric SUV to fit between the Lyriq and Escalade IQ

Cadillac's product planners sure love the letter Q. Last year the American luxury automaker started building the Lyriq, a rather competent midsize electric SUV . Last month, it revealed plans for an entry-level electric crossover called the Optiq, that goes on sale next year. And today, it tells us there's another new SUV due in model year 2026 called the Vistiq.
Size-wize, the Vistiq slots between the Lyriq and the rather ginormous Escalade IQ due for model year 2025—the brand recognition on that name is far too good to Q-icize it directly. Although we have no details other than the model year and the name right now, there's a fairly good chance the Vistiq will be an electric analogue to the Cadillac XT6 .
(Similarly we have no further details on the Optiq yet, other than it will share the same smaller crossover architecture as the forthcoming Chevrolet Equinox and will arrive in 2024.)
