The ethereal Cadillac Celestiq is set to be unveiled in full by the end of summer, and as that date draws closer, more details are coming out about the electric flagship sedan. As previously reported by Cadillac Society, the Celestiq will be hand-built in very small numbers at the GM Global Technical Center, and will feature premium technologies like Ultra Cruise and SPD SmartGlass. Now, new information about the upcoming electric sedan’s price point suggest that those interested in the vehicle should expect to shell out no less than $300,000.
Previous reports indicated that the Celestiq would be priced at around the $200,000 mark, but The Wall Street Journal recently reported that its cost will be quite a bit higher at $300,000. It shouldn’t be a surprise that the Cadillac Celestiq will be exclusively sold and marketed in “affluent” communities around a demographic of customers who will be more receptive to its high price point.
That $300,000 price tag isn’t completely unwarranted, though. The Celestiq will be the most customizable vehicle ever built by Cadillac, and buyers will be able to customize even minute details of the luxury electric sedan. For example, if they want interior wood trim made from a very specific tree, Cadillac will accommodate this request. That means that no two Cadillac Celestiq models will be exactly alike.
So far, Cadillac has provided only very small glimpses of what the upcoming Celestiq show car will look like. Earlier this month, the marque teased several aspects of the electric sedan’s exterior, including the headlight front fender design. More recently, Cadillac released a series of images showing off the Celestiq interior, depicting the electric sedan’s seats, speakers, and interior door panels.
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.
