Sir Vince said Labour and the Tories had "abandoned" mainstream economics and claimed there was a need to prepare "an exit from Brexit".
The vacancy for the leadership came after Tim Farron announced he would stand down because he had been unable to reconcile his Christian faith with the demands of leading a "progressive, liberal" party.
"We have this enormous hole in the middle of British politics", he said. "The two major parties have been captured by ideologues, ideologues on the one hand who hate Europe and on the other hand who hate capitalism". "As a result politics is more polarised and divided than at any time I can remember".
The new Lib Dem leader told the BBC that he wanted to occupy the "vast middle ground in British politics that's largely been abandoned". During Farron's time at the top, the party's membership sky-rocketed, reaching record-breaking levels for the party. "And that's exactly the formula that I and my party can offer".
'Under my leadership the Liberal Democrats will be at the centre of political life: a credible, effective party of national government. However, given the conspicuous lack of challengers, and with potential rivals such as Jo Swinson, Norman Lamb and Sir Ed Davey having already ruled out standing, the party has pressed ahead with Sir Vince's "coronation".
The Liberal Democrats made a net gain of three seats at the election, taking their tally up to 12 in the House of Commons.
Speaking following his announcement as leader, he promised to give a voters an "exit from Brexit" by continuing the Lib Dem's main campaign pledge of offering a second referendum on Britain's exit from the European Union.
On Brexit, the party looks set to continue as a pro-EU party and the Guardian reported that Cable has said he thinks the United Kingdom may never exit the EU.
However, the former Business Secretary takes over a party that is at a crossroads.
