Have a Family Fun Night with General Motors


Have a Family Fun Night with General Motors

Middle East – Most of us have been social distancing and isolating for a while now. It seems like it should be a great opportunity to bond with your family, spend more time with your spouse and catch up on all the hobbies and DIY projects you want to do at home. But let’s be honest – quarantine is starting to feel never-ending. What we all thought would be a couple of weeks has turned into months and we aren’t sure how much longer we will have to quarantine.

So, here are a few fun family activities that you can do in your car, right in your driveway.


  • washing the car doesn’t have to be a chore. Get the whole family involved, assign everyone a task, turn the hose on your loved ones and have a blast!
  • use the infotainment system and a tablet to stream some family-friendly tunes, with lyrics, so everyone can sing along. Take turns and judge each other’s performance to add a little family-friendly competition to the fun. For memories that will last a lifetime, film each performance.
  • – take your Instagram, GIF, meme and Tik Tok game to the next level by turning your car into a family photo or video booth. Bring along some props, costumes and backdrops to create some epic images. And if you are creating videos, use the infotainment system to play your favorite songs to pair perfectly with your home videos. You can even use this opportunity to create some photo and video memories to document this unprecedented time in your lives and keep them to look back on later.
  • – there are dozens of classic car games. Whilst they are traditionally used to pass the time on long family road trips, these car games can be fun even while in park.
    • one player is a spy who chooses an object within sight and announces to the other players that "I spy with my little eye, something beginning with...", naming the first letter of the object. Other players attempt to guess this object.
    • someone picks a song and starts humming or singing it. Then the other players try to guess which song it is. Instead of singing or humming, you can play songs from the radio or infotainment system for the players to guess.
    • bring along some post-its and some pens. Pick one name for each player – it can be a celebrity, cartoon or historical figure, etc. and stick the name on each person’s forehead or back. Don’t let the person see the name they are given. Every player gets 20 “yes” or “no” questions to guess who they are.
    • bring a ball and give it to one player to start. The person with the ball begins to tell a story, sharing one sentence. Then they pass the ball and story to the next person who continues it. Each player must leave the story on a cliffhanger for the next player to build on until the story feels complete.
    • a player starts the game by choosing a “person”, “place” or “thing” and telling the other players the category. The other players then have 20 questions (total) to guess what the starting player is thinking of.
    • the first player starts by saying, “I’m going out on a picnic and I’m bringing…” and then names an item that comes to mind. Then the next player has to remember that item and add something else to the story. Get a part of the story wrong and you’re out.

CADILLAC - LYRIQ Show Car Leads Cadillac Into Electric Future

CADILLAC - LYRIQ Show Car Leads Cadillac Into Electric Future

The brand’s first all-electric vehicle introduces a new era in luxury, technology and zero-tailpipe-emissions performance


Detroit – Cadillac’s introduction of its electric portfolio begins today with the debut of the LYRIQ show car — a dynamic, modern and fully electric luxury crossover.

The propulsion system and supporting technologies position Cadillac to be a leader in electrification, connectivity and automated driving, all delivered with thrilling performance and a new threshold in technology integration.

“Led by LYRIQ, Cadillac will redefine American luxury over the next decade with a new portfolio of transformative EVs,” said Steve Carlisle, executive vice president and president, GM North America. “We will deliver experiences that engage the senses, anticipate desires and enable our customers to go on extraordinary journeys.”

The LYRIQ is based on GM’s next-generation, modular electric vehicle platform and driven by the Ultium propulsion system, allowing Cadillac to deliver customers a variety of range and performance options. With range being one of the biggest factors when it comes to selecting an EV, we’re designing LYRIQ to offer beyond 300 miles of range on a full charge, based on internal testing1. Performance and technology highlights include:

Charging options that fit a variety of preferences for home, the workplace and on the road — including DC fast charging rates over 150 kilowatts and Level 2 charging rates up to 19 kW2

Rear-wheel drive and performance all-wheel drive configurations

The latest version of Super Cruise3, the industry’s first truly hands-free driver assistance feature, available on more than 200,000 miles of compatible highways and recently enhanced to include automated lane change

New technologies such as dual-plane augmented reality-enhanced head-up display and remote self-parking

The brand’s most seamless and adaptive technology interaction with the driver and passengers, including the latest Cadillac user experience, which is showcased in a 33-inch-diagonal advanced LED screen the spans the entire viewing area of the driver

“LYRIQ was conceived to make every journey exhilarating and leverages more than a century of innovation to drive the brand into a new era, while rewarding passengers with a more personal, connected and immersive experience,” said Jamie Brewer, Cadillac LYRIQ chief engineer. “To do this we developed an architecture specifically for EVs. It is not only an exceptional EV, but first and foremost a Cadillac.”


Some luxury EVs today feature adapted traditional internal combustion engine architecture, that is not the case with LYRIQ. Cadillac’s all-new, modular EV platform on which the LYRIQ is based is the foundation for its liberating performance. With a dedicated EV architecture, its design eliminates significant physical constraints associated with adapting electric propulsion within a conventional vehicle architecture, for an optimized design that supports greater driving range, an engaging driving experience and a new interpretation of passenger space.

Within the LYRIQ, the Ultium battery system is a structural element of the architecture, integrated in ways that contribute to ride and handling, as well as safety. In fact, the lower center of gravity and near 50/50 weight distribution enabled by the placement of the battery pack results in a vehicle that’s sporty, responsive and allows for spirited driving.

Additionally, the LYRIQ is driven primarily by the rear wheels, with a performance all-wheel drive option available. The placement of the drive motor at the rear of the vehicle contributes an even greater feeling of balance and agility — attributes that affirm Cadillac’s longstanding commitment to satisfying performance. It also enables the system to channel more torque to the pavement without wheelspin for exhilarating acceleration and greater cornering capability. Vehicles equipped with performance all-wheel drive go a step further, with a second drive unit placed at the front of the vehicle, which allows for a significant amount of tuning flexibility, enhancing vehicle dynamics and performance for drivers.


The Cadillac LYRIQ is powered by GM’s new Ultium battery system, which offers approximately 100 kilowatt-hours of energy to deliver stirring performance.

Ultium’s state-of-the-art NCMA (nickel-cobalt-manganese-aluminum) chemistry uses aluminum in the cathode to help reduce the need for rare-earth materials such as cobalt. In fact, GM engineers reduced the cobalt content by more than 70 percent, compared to current GM batteries.

The advanced battery chemistry is packed in large, flat pouch cells that enable smart module construction to reduce complexity and simplify cooling needs. Additionally, the battery electronics are incorporated directly into the modules, eliminating nearly 90 percent of the battery pack wiring, compared to GM’s current electric vehicles.

When it comes to charging, LYRIQ offers quick and convenient charging options whether at home or on the go. With DC fast charging, the LYRIQ can charge at rates over 150 kW.


Envisioned to make interaction with its technologies more intuitive and rewarding, the LYRIQ’s partnership with the driver and passengers is simultaneously energizing and artful.

Upon approach, the LYRIQ recognizes the driver and initiates a “greeting” with a choreographed lighting sequence, while also preparing the cabin for the journey, including seat, mirror and climate system adjustments. Once inside, the LYRIQ offers Cadillac’s highest level of driver information, infotainment and connectivity integration, for a more seamless and rewarding experience. 

A 33-inch-diagonal advanced LED display artfully integrates a single, large screen that spans the viewing area for the driver and incorporates driver information details, infotainment controls and camera views. This new display has the highest pixel density available in the automotive industry today and can display over one billion colors, 64 times more than any other vehicle in the automotive industry, providing a stunning in-vehicle experience unlike anything seen before from Cadillac.

Additional technology and interactive highlights include:

  • Battery and charging monitoring conveyed by easy, at-a-glance graphics. The system identifies the vehicle’s energy needs at home and on the go, according to owner preferences, while also monitoring and forecasting energy consumption and providing charging suggestions.
  • New dual-plane augmented reality-enhanced head-up display employs two planes: a near plane indicating speed, direction and more, and a far plane displaying transparent navigation signals and other important alerts.
  • The latest version of Super Cruise, the hands-free driver assistance feature, including automated lane change.3
  • Supervised remote parking that uses ultrasonic sensors to help the LYRIQ park itself in parallel or perpendicular parking spaces — whether the driver is inside or outside of the vehicle.4


LYRIQ’s technology also addresses sound in two important ways: Blocking unwanted sounds and making the most of the sounds passengers want to hear.

For the first time, Cadillac will introduce a new road noise cancellation technology, which takes active noise cancellation to the next level by introducing more microphones and accelerometers, which improve noise cancellation abilities. With this new system, Cadillac’s performance and audio engineers can target the frequency range of tire cavity noise, reducing the noise level in the vehicle and allowing for a quieter in-cabin experience.

The Cadillac LYRIQ builds on the brand’s exclusive partnership with AKG. “With LYRIQ we wanted to deliver a sound experience that would transport the driver from a vehicle into a recording studio,” said Hussein Khalil, Cadillac lead audio design release engineer. “With the AKG sound system, we are able to deliver this experience along with the quality and reliability luxury customers expect.”

At launch, LYRIQ will offer a 19-speaker AKG Studio audio system that delivers exceptionally crisp and precise sound reproduction, enabling drivers and passengers to enjoy their favorite music.


Cadillac’s first electric SUV makes a bold design statement that introduces a new face, proportion and presence for the brand’s new generation of EVs. It’s a forward-looking vision unconstrained by the needs of a traditional internal combustion engine and driveline.

“The LYRIQ represents the next iteration of the iconic brand’s styling, enabled by electrification, as only Cadillac can express,” said Andrew Smith, executive director, Global Cadillac Design. “Inside and out, LYRIQ is a thoughtful integration of design and technology and is intended to make every drive an occasion.”

Defined by taut lines and clean surfaces, LYRIQ is assertive and modern, characterized with a low, fast roofline and wide stance that emphasize agility and convey confidence. Additional details such as a flow-through roof spoiler express the careful attention paid to aerodynamics to optimize efficiency on the highway.

A distinctive “black crystal” grille in the front is one of the LYRIQ’s most unique and expressive design elements. It is also a dynamic feature, as it is part of a dramatic lighting choreography that — along with bold vertical, slim LED signature lighting — greets the owner upon approach. At the rear, a split taillamp design incorporates slim LEDs that are also integrated into the lighting choreography.

Inside, the LYRIQ’s new electric vehicle architecture opens up possibilities in vehicle spaciousness and design; and Cadillac designers used this as an opportunity to rethink how to use the space and where to locate various interior elements.

The result is a more airy, minimalistic design that does more to involve the driver and passengers in the driving experience while offering exceptional functionality when it comes to storage solutions. It is also brimming with subtle yet obsessive details such as backlit speaker grilles, curved screens with hidden storage and, like the exterior, orchestrated lighting features.

Throughout the decades, we’ve grown together and celebrated one milestone after the other and 2023 is certainly a landmark year for us. With the reveal of LYRIQ, we’re embarking together on a new, exciting and promising chapter of redefining the luxury electric vehicle space.”

Mr. Timmy T. Davis, U.S. Ambassador to Qatar said: “Cadillacs are iconic. They make cars that are a global symbol of U.S. culture and identity.

LYRIQ also offers high-speed DC fast charging enabling customers to add an estimated 125 km of range in about 10 minutes2 of charging time.

Aesthetically, LYRIQ is a sight to behold. The interior is clean and simple with a focus on secondary and tertiary design elements, including intricate laser etched patterns through wood over metal décor, which has never been done before. The large, curved LED screen is the centerpiece, alongside the distinctive black crystal grille, and all the components are incorporated artfully, blurring the lines of separation among technology, lighting and décor.

Additional information about the LYRIQ availability3 will be shared at a later stage.
