Cadillac has a swath of new all-electric models on the docket, with the Lyriq crossover slated to be the first out the gates. However, following the Lyriq will be the new Cadillac Celestiq, which is framed as the luxury marque’s latest range-topping flagship sedan. Now, we’re getting a look at what the new Celestiq could look like thanks to the following GM Authority rendering image.
We based our Cadillac Celestiq rendering on the Cadillac Escala concept introduced at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2016, given the Escala is tipped to provide the inspiration for the up-and-coming all-electric flagship. The exterior is long and wide, with a gently sloping roofline that falls back into the trunk in a single arc.
To this framework, we added modern all-electric styling cues pulled from the Cadillac Lyriq, including a reshaped front end featuring the same triangular side intake treatment, crest-shaped solid front grille section, and ultra-thin lighting elements.
Further styling features include complex, plus-sized wheels, L-shaped tail lamps, and polished silver trim. The C-pillar is also particularly wide, enhancing the rear hatch section of the large flagship sedan model.
The look helps to frame the Cadillac Celestiq as a spiritual successor to the top-shelf, ultra-luxury four-doors of Cadillac’s past. That positioning will continue into the cabin, where the Celestiq is believed to incorporate a 2+2 seating arrangement and oodles of high-end materials for a handcrafted fit and finish. The tech features will also be cutting-edge, with a series of huge touchscreens and self-driving tech, all of which fall in line with the Celestiq’s robust all-electric powertrain.
Pricing for all this goodness is expected to be around $200,000. The Cadillac Celestiq was originally expected to launch prior to 2025 calendar year, but has since been moved up to the 2023 calendar year.
