Folks,

This is what I learned from the local Cadillac dealer this afternoon. I am a silver First Edition buyer with the basic wheels. He told me that as of two weeks ago none of the LYRIQs had been made for customers, but rather they were being built for marketing and training at that point.

He was told by Cadillac that they would start delivering cars to west coast customers first then expand east until they reach the east coast. They are training the dealerships now on how to maintain and repair electric cars. I live in North Carolina so I figure I will get my LYRIQ in September.

I wanted my car sooner, but their strategy seems to make sense. I think dealer support is crucial. just wish Cadillac would be more transparent.

That makes sense. Supposedly the Debut Edition cars will start to go out to customers next week - after the media event that is going on in Utah right now...

At least that is something for understanding the production rollout to dealerships.
I will just have to wait until the delivery trucks find their way to the midwest 😎

As a California dweller, I hope that is the case!

I think the vast majority of allotments should go to Utah based reservation holders.

Utah provided the venue for the press junket.

It's only fair. I'm just being objective and sensible.

I totally agree, right after DFW gets all their allotments. After all everything is bigger in Texas, it’s only fair they get the first and most allotments

Agreed, everything is bigger in Texas as should be our allotments. Also, since bigger comes first, Houston is much larger than cute little Dallas. -- Houston should be first in Texas. just sayin

I am also with Sewell -- Houston. My understanding is that Sewell sells the second most cars for Cadillac nationwide, and are to receive their allotments early. So we should be in good standing regarding delivery.
I'm with Crest Cadillac in DFW and they've always been great. Been with them since 1998 and I honestly don't see how they could improve further. I'm told they're 5th nationally in allotments.

Not what we heard. We were told Midwest deliveries would come first. Further east or west would be last. This is for Debut Edition only. Closer to the plant and engineers Incase they need assistance for anything. We were told this months ago. Now we do have training coming up. Out west is one of the first areas with the Midwest / IMS training starting in November.

Considering the dealer I’m using is in the same state and only three hours away, I’d hate to think they could pass my dealership without dropping some off along the way! C’mon no WAMMIES!!
