To Be Hand-Built & Customized like a Rolls Royce

Cadillac's sleek and elegant, Celestiq hatchback grand tourer concept is all-electric and designed to re-ignite and electrify the Cadillac brand.  Cadillac hopes that the Celestiq will usher back the brand's glory days 50 years ago when it was the leader in luxury cars. To recapture the luxury car title, Celestiq is being designed with dramatic, futuristic lines and features.  It is being billed as Cadillac's flagship and the EV that will lead Cadillac into its electric future.  The EV will be hand-built and totally customizable like a Rolls Royce.  It will also be available only in very limited quantities.

Details That Cadillac Has Provided

The Celestiq will be built on GM's Ultium electric platform which enables its low, sleek, dramatic and wide proportional design. The EVs will have all-wheel drive, all electric powertrains.  Celestiq will be equipped with GM's most advanced technologies, including GM's next-generation hands-free driving system Ultra Cruise.  It will get at least 300 miles of range on a charge from its large battery pack.  In terms of design, it's a low to the ground, 4-door sedan with a long hood and sloping roof.  The EV is a harmonic blending of the future and past.  The back end of the EV is muscular with a cab-rearward positioning.  There is an elegant, smart glass fastback roof, strong vertical lighting details and an electrified, totally redesigned front grill.

Interior Details

Inside, there is nothing but plush luxury, highlighted by a 55-inch LED display stretching across the front dashboard from door to door. There are also large displays for the passengers in the rear of the car.  The interior is hand-crafted of what Cadillac calls "sustainable design practices".  Like Cadillac show cars of the 1960's and 1970's, there is a huge steering wheel with metal touches and signature bright, red leather upholstery. The seating is modeled on the famed Eames chairs of the 1950's.  This spectacular EV will go into production in 2023 and will go on the market in 2025, at a reported price of $300,000.  Cadillac says it will be providing more details about the EV in the near future.  We'll keep you posted on what looks like an epic new ride.  For more news like this, Future Modes of Travel 2020's & 2030's
