General Motors’ (GM) luxury marque Cadillac begins production of $340,000 Celestiq luxury EV.

GM says Celestiq is sold out for the next 18 months despite the starting price of around the $340,000.

Cadillac Celestiq will rival $433k Rolls-Royce Spectre in the ultra-luxury electric market.

It rides on GM’s BEV3 platform and incorporates a 111 kWh GM Ultium battery pack that allows it to go 300 miles electric range.

Cadillac has finally commenced the production of the Rolls-Royce Spectre’s rival, the Celestiq, over a year after General Motors’ (GM) luxury marque first unveiled the flagship electric sedan in October 2022.

“We have already begun building one of one units,” Cadillac Vice President, John Roth, said during a recent briefing attended by GM Authority.

Speccing the $340,000 Celestiq will take the price to as much as $400,000.

Last December, GM executives said that its flagship sedan designed to go up against the $433k Rolls-Royce Spectre has already been sold out for the next 18 months despite the starting price of around the $340,000. But speccing the Celestiq will take the price to as much as $400,000.

Cadillac plans to hand-built between 100 and 150 units of the Celestiq EV annually at the GM Global Technical Center in Warren, Michigan.

At the unveiling, the luxury brand said the pricey four-door Cadillac Celestiq sedan would be produced in “extremely small numbers”, with no more than six units built at a time.

The Cadillac Celestiq rides on GM’s BEV3 platform and incorporates a 111 kWh GM Ultium battery pack that allows it to go 300 miles electric range per charge. Celestiq ultra-luxury sedan isn’t designed to be raced in, but the sprint to 60 mph takes an estimated 3.8 seconds.
