GM announced on Friday that Cadillac will be at the vanguard of the company's move towards an all-electric future. In order to keep up with emerging markets, the automaker surprised the world with a teaser for its first fully electric SUV on Sunday, slating release for 2022.

The new electric Caddy SUV will be GMs first electric vehicle to use GM's new third-generation electric-car architecture, with a versatile "skateboard" chassis and a battery-pack design that can accommodate different capacities in the same format. It claims we'll see one new model every six months through 2021.

On Sunday, Cadillac unveiled pictures of the advanced vehicle, which features a sleek exterior and will be the first model obtained from General Motor's future EV platform.

The new platform will be flexible, and adaptable to front-, rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations. Called as Cadillac BEV3, the vehicle, in fact, is a cross-over of different shapes and employs the state-of-the-art EV-based transmission and ignition system.
