Last month, Cadillac Society reported the Cadillac Celestiq full-size electric luxury sedan would go on sale earlier than expected, likely in either the late 2023 or early 2024 calendar years. Now, we have learned when the luxury marque plans to reveal its opulent new EV.
The Celestiq unveiling was been pushed back from April to this summer, likely July or August, sources tell Cadillac Society.
The Cadillac Celestiq is expected to have a starting price of around $200,000 and, apart from the BEV3 chassis/platform, body panels and Ultium electric drivetrain, will be assembled by hand. It will also be packed with the latest Cadillac technologies, including a large full-width front digital infotainment display and a four-quadrant roof made of suspended-particle-device smart glass. Each of the four quadrants will be capable of being individually controlled by the vehicle’s passengers.
The Cadillac Celestiq is expected to pull design inspiration from both the Cadillac Escala concept and the Cadillac Lyriq. Like the Lyriq, it will first make its debut as a show car before the final production version is unveiled closer to the launch.
“Designed to set a new standard for luxury EVs, the Cadillac Celestiq show car embodies Cadillac’s commitment to reimagine what’s possible in design and technology,” the marque said in a press release. “The Celestiq imparts immersive, personalized and ultra-luxurious mobility experiences that reward the senses and inspire extraordinary journeys.”
Last month, Cadillac released a teaser video that showed certain aspects of the Celestiq show car, including the taillights and full-width display screen, which may represent the best look we’ll get at the Celestiq show car before its debut this summer, though we do expect a few teasers along the way.
