Cadillac Celestiq Was On Display At 2022 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

Cadillac Celestiq Was On Display At 2022 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

After months of anticipation and various delays, the Cadillac Celestiq show car finally debuted last month. However, the images that Cadillac shared were highly detailed digital renderings of the forthcoming electric flagship sedan, instead of the real-life version. But the luxury marque brought the show car in its physical form to the 2022 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California last week, giving enthusiasts a first glimpse of the show car in person. 

Photos of the Cadillac Celestiq show car were posted on social media by Magalie Debellis, Head of Advanced Design at Cadillac. The electric ultra-luxury sedan was presented with a backdrop of red LED lights and spotlights highlighting its unique design. The show car sports a metallic silver exterior paint with gloss black accents, along with rich red leather upholstery.

Up top, the Cadillac Celestiq features a roof with SPD SmartGlass, split into four quadrants of variable lighting, enabling passengers to control their respective zone’s opacity. The Celestiq will also be one of the first vehicles to feature Ultra Cruise, which will be capable of handling up to 95 percent of driving scenarios without human input

Along with highly advanced technologies, the upcoming Cadillac Celestiq will be built in very small numbers at the GM Global Technical Center, thanks to an $81 million investment in the facility and will allow customers to customize even the most minute aspects, such as specific wood for interior trim.

Recently, Cadillac’s parent company, General Motors, filed to trademark four names that – Aurora, Mist, Magnetic and Vale – that will likely serve as design themes for the Celestiq. Beyond that, sources have indicated that interested customers should expect the Celestiq to carry a price tag of over $300,000.

  1. Mary barra must be on drugs….who in there right mind would buy this?

    • I definitely would Robert, check out the affordable payment plan I’ve laid out below.

  2. Wow! A true car enthusiasts vehicle. Luxury and technology rolled into one. Wish I could afford it!

  3. Every article I’ve read so far has stated that GM’s super cruise is technologically far superior to Tesla’s auto pilot in real world applications making it the leader in this field.

    GM’s Ultima platform also has received rave reviews so far causing Honda to partner up with them. Obviously we’ll have to wait and see the final execution of both the Lyric and Celestique but early indications are both could be game changers.

    My only hesitation is the pricing of the Celestiq. I think $200,000 would be a better starting point in keeping in line with the top of the line Lucid, the current leader in this category of luxury electric platform.

  4. ok, let me get this straight:
    $500.00 monthly payment
    X 600 monthly payments
    so, sweet!..payed off in only 50 years

  5. Pricing is wayyyy out there , guess they are only thinking of the rich and famous . Which means not too many sold units.

  6. $300K of ugliness. The front end looks like a catfish. Where is my Escala?

  7. If you are thinking of a payment plan on a niche vehicle like this, you are on the wrong car. There will be handful of those built, and customers will be hand picked.

    The Cadillac Lyriq on the other hand is a different story.

    no one must be offended if this car is not meant to be built for them, its just sometimes, some products are not for everyone.

    • So true !
