Cadillac has teased its Opulent Velocity concept and it looks like it will be a future performance EV.

The teaser video reveals little, but Cadillac seems to be driving its sporty V-series forward into the electric age.

Although, arguably this 2021 Cadillac Escalade Sport Platinum is the sportiest Cadillac.

This model is even grenade and bulletproof.

The concept will be revealed later this year to celebrate 20 years of the V-series.

The tantalizing video appears to show blurry images of an an electric sports sedan.

However, rather than calling it an ‘EV’, it’s referred to as a “zero emissions” vehicle.

It’s an apparent peek into the future of the brand’s performance-oriented V-series.

Cadillac’s V-series vehicles already include the 668-hp CT5-V Blackwing and 472-hp CT4-V Blackwing.

And, according to the brand, the series brings “bold American craftsmanship, technology and performance to the street and track.”

“V-Series represents the purest expression of the passion that exists at the core of the Cadillac brand,” they added.

However, Cadillac has made statements to announce that, these will be their last gas-burning V-branded models as they stride forward into the future.

This news means the future of the company’s performance lineup up in the air, however, today’s announcement (13 March) is giving a sense of direction: a sporty electric Cadillac.

“Opulent Velocity is designed to foreshadow a zero emissions expression of performance and modern luxury leadership,” Bryan Nesbitt, executive director of Cadillac Global Design, said.

“We will share more later this year, so stay tuned.”

While the information and clear images are scant, per the brand’s announcement, the car will “celebrate the past, present and future” of the V-series line.

The name signifies not only “the duality of the Cadillac brand,” but also “the evolution of Cadillac’s revered sense of opulence, while envisioning the future of a high velocity performance driving experience.”

What we can see in the video above are brief flashes on an angular design.

It’s thought that it will mirror the style of the Celestiq flagship.

The latest iterations of Cadillac’s V-Series, the 2025 CT5-V and CT5-V Blackwing, debuted in January.

Their look is new, but they maintain the “renowned power, refinement and performance enthusiasts expect, on and off the track”.

However, it remains to be seen how Cadillac can emulate the feel of the gas-powered Blackwings in an electric V-series car.
