The Cadillac Celestiq show car was teased during a video presentation at CES 2021 this week, giving us our first glimpse of the upcoming ultra-luxury electric sedan.
The teaser video reveals a portion of the future vehicle’s vertical LED daytime running lights and long, dramatically creased hood. We also get a clear look at its unique LED taillights, which appear very similar to the taillights from the Cadillac Lyriq crossover. As GM Authority exclusively reported in the past, the Celestiq will feature a low profile, wide stance and dramatic rearward proportions, giving it a very commanding road presence. For reference, it is expected to be even longer and wider than the full-size Cadillac CT6 sedan.
The one-minute video clip provides a sneak peek at the Celestiq’s interior, as well. A passenger is seen pressing a glass button in the center console, which lightens the smart glass tint for the panoramic sunroof to let more natural light into the cabin. Cadillac says the four-quadrant smart glass allows each occupant of the Celestiq to set their own level of roof transparency. The individually adjustable panels are just one way in which the Celestiq will aim to provide a unique, individual experience for each of the four passengers in the vehicle.
Cadillac also dropped some information on the large digital display that will appear in the Celestiq. The automaker says the freeform display will span from pillar-to-pillar across the dashboard, while rear seat passengers will enjoy their own personalized entertainment screens. There will also be a console screen between the seats in the front and back, which can be used to adjust seat comfort settings, entertainment display settings and more.
“As Cadillac’s future flagship sedan, Celestiq show car embodies Cadillac’s pioneering spirit and focus on setting the standard for luxury EVs,” the automaker said in a prepared statement.
The Cadillac Celestiq will come standard with all-wheel-drive, four-wheel-steering and a full glass roof. Like virtually every other future GM electric vehicle, the Celestiq will likely utilize GM’s new Ultium lithium-ion battery technology and Ultium Drive electric motors. It is expected to utilize the automaker’s BEV3 dedicated electric vehicle platform, as well.
