Cadillac Celestiq EV Show Car revealed, previews future electric flagship sedan that is set to enter the market in 2024.
GM’s luxury car brand promises to announce additional details on the Celestiq production model later this year.
Celestiq will go up against cars from Rolls-Royce and Bentley, and will likely be priced around $300,000.
GM’s luxury car brand has finally revealed the Cadillac Celestiq ‘Show Car’, previewing the future electric flagship sedan that is set to enter the market in 2024 as a 2025 model.
Cadillac said that four-door electric and autonomous luxury vehicle, inspired by pre-war era coaches and hand-built 1957 Eldorado Brougham, will be its most advanced vehicle to date.
“Those vehicles represented the pinnacle of luxury in their respective eras, and helped make Cadillac the standard of the world,” said Tony Roma, chief engineer.
“The Celestiq show car – also a sedan, because the configuration offers the very best luxury experience – builds on that pedigree and captures the spirit of arrival they expressed.”
“The CELESTIQ show car is the purest expression of Cadillac,” said Magalie Debellis, manager, Cadillac Advanced Design.
“It brings to life the most integrated expressions of design and innovation in the brand’s history, coalescing in a defining statement of a true Cadillac flagship.”
The Celestiq is planned to offer Ultra-Cruise – the next evolution of Cadillac hands-free driver-assistance system that works on more than 200,000 miles (321,869 km) of compatible roads in the United States and Canada.
Other features include a Smart Glass roof and five high-definition advanced LED displays, including a 55-inch diagonal advanced LED display contained within a single uninterrupted piece of glass.
While some of these features are previewed on the show car, Cadillac said these tech and more will make Celestiq the most advanced vehicle ever from Cadillac.
GM is investing $81 million to support the assembly of the Celestiq at GM’s Global Technical Center. The Celestiq will be the first production vehicle built there since the center’s inauguration in May 1956.
Cadillac promises to announce additional details on the Celestiq production model later this year. When it arrives, the Celestiq will go up against cars from Rolls-Royce and Bentley, and will likely be priced around $300,000, according to Inside sources.
