The Cadillac Celestiq is on the horizon, ready to sweep in and continue the luxury marque’s electric onslaught with hand-built quality and unparalleled opulence. Cadillac Society has now learned that the forthcoming full-size electric luxury sedan will be customizable right down to even the most minute aspect, and no two Celestiq sedans will be alike.
This extreme level of customization will allow Celestiq buyers to control every detail of their vehicles, similar to the Bespoke departments at Bentley and Rolls-Royce. A source tells us that levels of customization will be so high that Cadillac will allow customers to use wood from a tree in their front yard for the Celestiq’s interior trim. That option, along with countless others, will be available to Celestiq buyers.
That means the upcoming electric luxury sedan will be the most customizable vehicle in the history of Cadillac and its parent company, General Motors. It should be no surprise, then, that it is also poised to be the most expensive vehicle to have been offered by the luxury marque, starting around the $200,000 mark. For reference, the current most expensive Caddy is the high-performance Cadillac Escalade-V, which starts at $150,000.
Under the skin, the Cadillac Celestiq will be underpinned by the latest version of the BEV3 electric vehicle platform, driven by Ultium battery technology and Ultium Drive technology. The electric luxury sedan will also be one of the first vehicles to feature Ultra Cruise, the luxury marque’s upcoming fully autonomous driver assist system that will be capable of handling up to 95 percent of real-world driving scenarios.
In addition, the Cadillac Celestiq will feature a full glass roof with SPD SmartGlass, divided into four quadrants that can be individually adjusted to allow as much, or as little, ambient light inside as desired by passengers thanks to SPD SmartGlass technology. This technology could also benefit the vehicle’s driving range by helping to better regulate cabin temperatures.
The Cadillac Celestiq has yet to be unveiled in full, although the reveal could happen as soon as June.
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 and Cadillac Celestiq forum.
