The upcoming Cadillac Celestiq is poised to make splashdown as the brand’s all-new, all-electric halo sedan, introducing a new level of luxury and opulence with a sumptuous cabin space, hand-built quality, cutting-edge tech features, and much more. Now, GM Authority has learned that the new Cadillac Celestiq will be extremely customizable, as well.
Granted, high-end luxury vehicles like the Cadilalc Celestiq should be customizable by default. So then, what does “extremely” customizable mean in this sense?
Essentially, General Motors will take fully custom orders on the same level as the Bespoke departments at Bentley or Rolls-Royce. For example, if a customer wanted to use the wood from a tree on their property when outfitting the interior trim in their new Cadillac Celestiq, General Motors will accommodate.
All told, the new Cadillac Celestiq will be the most customizable vehicle in GM’s history. No surprise, then, the halo sedan will cost at least $200,000, making it the most expensive Cadillac model ever offered, a title currently held by the $150,000 Cadillac Escalade-V.
As for the technology in store, the Cadillac Celestiq will feature the latest GM Ultium battery and GM Ultium drive motor technologies, with the GM BEV3 platform providing the bones. The cabin space will feature a 2+2 seating arrangement, while up top will be a SmartGlass roof with programmable opacity. The Cadillac Celestiq will also be among the first vehicles to offer the next-generation GM Ultra Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist system.
As for the styling, the Cadillac Celestiq will take inspiration from the Cadillac Escala concept revealed at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and will include a grille studded with LEDs.
The Cadillac Celestiq was originally slated for a reveal last year. However, the debut date has been pushed back repeatedly, and is now believed to be set for June, although that date could definitely change again.
