Frequently Asked Questions

How powerful is it? How fast does it accelerate?

The Cadillac Optiq First Edition is equipped with a powertrain that delivers up to 224 kW (300 hp) of power and 354 lb-ft of torque.

This enables a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 5.9 seconds (ranked №321 out of 683 electric vehicles) and a top speed of 113 mph.

How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

Real-world range of the Cadillac Optiq First Edition is 270–330 miles (ranked №143 out of 683 electric vehicles) — depending on several factors, including:

  • Speed: Higher speeds deplete the battery faster.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold and hot weather impacts range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous terrain reduces range.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Use of features: Features like climate control and media system also affect range.

It's important to remember that these are just estimates, and your actual range may vary. It's always best to factor in these various factors when planning your trip and be prepared for potential charging stops.

What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?

The Cadillac Optiq First Edition in the USA comes with a CCS Type 1 charging port. It can be charged at home using a standard domestic socket or at any public AC charging station with the compatible cable. It's important to note that the car's on-board charger (inverter) limits the maximum AC charging rate to 11.5 kW, resulting in approximately 37 miles of range added per hour of charging.

For significantly faster charging, public DC fast-charging stations are available. Although the car can achieve a maximum DC charging rate of 150 kW, factors such as battery temperature and charge level may affect the actual charging speed.

Use Green Cars Compare Charging Calculator to estimate charging time, rate, and cost.

For even faster home charging, an optional 19.2 kW AC on-board charger is available.
