Cadillac reveals official photos of the Celestiq, an electric halo sedan giving us a glimpse of Cadillac’s all-electric future.
Celestiq is inspired by pre-war V16 coaches and the 1957 Eldorado Brougham, incorporating the manufacturer’s 120-year history with GM’s new Ultium electric powertrain technology and the Ultra Cruise hands-free driving innovation.
Its exteriors capture some of Lyriq’s lighting prowess, having vertical lighting on either side and the grille serving as a home to the illuminated Cadillac badge in the center. Thre rear lighting starts at the side, extending around the back. The vehicle is hand-built with a long and low hood that extends over the wheels. At the rear, we can see a light-up “Celestiq” logo.
Drivers are welcomed by a 55-inch LED display, while passengers are given screens at the back of the headrests with electronic digital blinds to give them privacy and prevent any distractions. There are also two touchscreen controllers between the front and rear seats.
Each passenger gets their own variable lighting zone through the “Smart Glass Roof” with “Suspended Particle Device” technology.
Magalie Debellis, Cadillac Advanced Design Manager, says “The Celestiq show car is the purest expression of Cadillac. 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.”
Color & Trim Creative Designer Laetitia Lopez shares, “We’ve combined the beauty of function with the beauty of form. We had to reconsider all aspects to immerse the customer, all of their senses, and create a connection with the vehicle through the finest genuine materials, exceptional detailing, and advanced technology.”
Cadillac still has a lot of details on reserve and the production schedule has not been announced. So stay tuned for more information in the future.
