Cadillac unveils a futuristic $ 300

After a series of teasers and some big claims dedicated to major rivals, such as Mercedes and Tesla, the 2023 Cadillac Celestiq has finally made its big debut. Cadillac unveiled the prototype of the Celestiq Show Car, or the future flagship electric sedan. While it may not be 100% production ready, we can still admire the design both inside and out.

Cadillac, for this model, was inspired by the first cars of the pre-war era such as the 1957 Eldorado Brougham. While the exterior is characterized by sharp lines and sharp corners, the interior is perhaps still more stunning. - th_motorlabs_d_mh2_1 slot id: th_motorlabs_d_mh2 "); }
For all the details it is necessary to wait for the car to go into production, but Cadillac anticipated that all the technological innovations of the concept will also be present on the final model; It is therefore legitimate to wait for the Smart Glass Roof with variable transmission and the Ultra Cruise autonomous driving system.

More news on Celestiq production will be revealed at a later time. Cadillac promises that this will be its most advanced vehicle to date and will reportedly come to market with a premium price of $ 300,000. No information on the battery compartment even if we know that it will certainly be a high-end sedan, therefore it is legitimate to wait for journeys similar to those of Mercedes EQS. - th_motorlabs_d_mh3_1 slot id: th_motorlabs_d_mh3 "); }

The Celestiq Concept Is the Stunning Face of Cadillac's All-Electric Future

Cadillac is going all-in on EVs. The luxury American carmaker plans for at least half of its fleet to be purely electric by 2025, and now, we get to see a preview of the car that'll lead the charge. The Celestiq show car is our very first look at the sedan set to join the Lyriq crossover in Cadillac's lineup, and it's a stunner.

The show car's flashy design was inspired by bespoke V-16-powered pre-war coach builds and cars like the 1957 Eldorado Brougham, says Cadillac. Designers also drew inspiration from mid-century architecture and iconic American designs that made 'era-defining statements.'

Much of the front fascia shares its looks with the Lyriq, but follow the strong, flowing lines to the rear and you'll find a totally new design for the brand. Cadillac's signature long, linear taillights have been rotated 90 degrees, and now sport an L shape that follows up the C pillar. There's also a secondary set of taillights on the lower bumper, there to extenuate the lines from the rear fascia to the wheels. It's a handsome hatchback-like design that we can't get enough of.

“The Celestiq show car is the purest expression of Cadillac,” advanced design manager Magalie Debellis said in a statement. “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.”

It's not just the looks Cadillac is showing off with this Celestiq concept. There are also a handful of new tech features onboard it plans to introduce in the production version. There are five interactive LED displays inside, including a 55-inch unit that spans the width of the dashboard. There's also a feature Cadillac calls the Smart Glass Roof, which can control how much light comes into the cabin in four distinct quadrants, allowing each occupant to pick exactly how much light they're exposed to.

Also aboard the Celestiq concept is Ultra Cruise, the next evolution in GM's Super Cruise hands-free assisted driving tech. Though the company plans to introduce Ultra Cruise on the road-going Celestiq, it's currently in pre-production form, and its features are unknown.

Story continues

The production Celestiq will ride on GM's Ultium battery tech. Cadillac hasn't revealed specs, though it's rumored to send power to all four wheels and achieve over 300 miles on a single charge. Pricing isn't out yet, either, but the Celestiq is expected to cost roughly $300,000—the most of any Cadillac ever.
