The design of the Cadillac Celestiq is said to be primarily inspired by the eloquent Escala concept. An official indication of what the upcoming all-electric flagship luxury sedan will look like has since come in the form of a teaser video released in January of 2021. The ultra-luxurious Celestiq will also share some styling cues with the Cadillac Lyriq crossover, which is scheduled to enter the market in the first quarter of 2022.
The styling features shared with the Lyriq include hidden headlights and two very large intakes, one on each side of the LED-infused grille with an illuminated Cadillac emblem in its center. In a Cadillac Society rendering, the arrangement of vertical and horizontal lighting elements at the rear of the Lyriq show car has also been carried over as shown below
Cadillac President, Steve Carlisle, was quoted as saying that the Celestiq will have a price in the vicinity of $200,000. Production volume will be limited.
The first in-person appearance of the Celestiq was at a special event on March 4th, 2020, with the aforementioned teaser video following nearly a year later.
As of this writing, we believe that the Cadillac Celestiq will make its debut during the 2023 calendar year.
The Cadillac Celestiq is expected to go on sale by the 2025 calendar year, if not earlier.
On several occasions, Cadillac executives have stated that it’s highly likely that all Cadillac models will be electric by the year 2030.
