Here Minter is talking about a new system “that takes active noise cancellation to the next level.” It adds more microphones than previous systems, as well as accelerometers, which improve noise cancellation abilities. For instance, Cadillac engineers were able to target the frequency range of tire cavity noise for a quieter cabin.
We’d love to see some sort of cool, futuristic door handle technology, which is why we left the showpieces on, but we’ll probably see something more conventional. Expect the grille to stay as well, as it leaves space for cameras and sensors. We’re really wondering about those red taillight/reflectors on the upper rear sides. They look out of place to us, but we’re guessing Cadillac has a plan for them too.
This will be a new era for Cadillac, and so far we like what we’ve seen. You should be able to spot all-electric Lyriq cruising around sometime early next year.
