Cadillac Files ‘Symboliq’ Trademark, Potentially For A New EV?
Cadillac has two new electric vehicles with dubious names on the way: Lyriq and Celestiq. The Lyriq midsize crossover will debut on August 6 and will be the brand’s first electric SUV. We don’t know when the Celestiq will be released, but rumors say it will be a large and luxurious flagship sedan with a price tag of nearly $ 200,000. Now, recent patent filings point to a potential third model, dubbed Symboliq.
Discovered by the website Cadillac Company, the entry includes both the name “Symboliq” alone, as well as “Cadillac Symboliq”. Both relate to “motor land vehicles, namely automobiles” according to the trademark registered on July 21, 2020 with the US Patent and Trademark Office, and the following day with the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property. However, it should be noted that this is a brand new mark and will not be granted with the USPTO until about three months after filing.
Still, the Symboliq could be the third of five EVs promised by the brand over the next few years, as the company quickly shifts to a more EV-centric lineup. It’s not clear what type of vehicle will use the new Symboliq nameplate, if any, but our best guess is a small crossover the size of the XT4. A three-row crossover like the XT6, as well as an electric version of the Escalade, is rumored to be part of the Cadillac EV lineup as well.
What we do know so far about the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq is that it will be based on the concept of the same name we saw in 2019. A recent teaser video of the proposed production version shows the outlines of an SUV that differs only slightly from the original. prototype, with distinctive features like LED headlights and a slanted coupe-like roofline. We’ll know all about the new Cadillac Lyriq when it debuts next month.
