The upcoming Cadillac Celestiq flagship electric sedan could finally be unveiled in June 2022, Cadillac Society has learned.
So far, the Celestiq has proved to be quite elusive. The luxury marque teased its existence back in early 2021, providing a glimpse of the luxury show car, without showing the complete vehicle. Then, we learned that Cadillac was planning to reveal the Celestiq in the summer of 2021 and then in early 2022. Both timeframes have now passed, likely as a result of delays stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. Now, our sources have told us to tentatively expect the Cadillac Celestiq to be unveiled this June.
As of this writing, information about the Celestiq is few and far between, but Cadillac Society has discovered a bit about the upcoming electric flagship. We know that it will slightly larger than the CT6 with a design similar to that of the Lyriq – Cadillac’s first electric vehicle that began production in March at the Cadillac Spring Hill plant.
In addition, the Celestiq will feature a panoramic glass roof made of SPD SmartGlass technology divided into four quadrants with adjustable opacity, depending on passenger preference. Not only does this grant an extra layer of customization to the luxury electric sedan, but it could help increase the Celestiq’s driving range by reducing cabin temperature and therefore putting less demand on the air conditioning system.
Additionally, the upcoming Cadillac Celestiq will be one of the first vehicles to feature Ultra Cruise, the luxury marque’s advanced autonomous assist technology. Ultra Cruise will be capable of handling up to 90 percent of driving scenarios on the road with complete autonomy.
With the exception of batteries and frame/body stampings, the Cadillac Celestiq will be hand-built in the Detroit area and carry a starting price tag of around $200,000.
We’ll provide more details on the Celestiq as soon as we get them. Until then, be sure to subscribe to Cadillac Society for more Cadillac Celestiq news and around-the-clock Cadillac news coverage. We also invite you to join the latest discussions in our Cadillac forums.
