2020 Cadillac CT4-V first drive review: More of the same

Craig Cole/Roadshow, General Motors

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has not slowed General Motors down. The company says both the Cadillac Lyriq and GMC Hummer electric vehicles are on schedule, despite shutdowns around the world, though oddly, GM seems to have forgotten that it intended to reveal the Lyriq in early April.

“Product development work is proceeding at a rapid pace,” Ken Morris, vice president of electric and autonomous vehicles at GM, said while speaking with media over the phone on Tuesday. In fact, the timing of both projects
