The Cadillac Celestiq Show Car made its official online debut last month, with GM providing the media with a handful of digital renderings of the battery-electric luxury concept. Now GM has presented the Cadillac Celestiq Show Car in person for the first time, with the automaker bringing the svelte, high-priced EV to the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance in California this past weekend, where it was in the presence of countless wealthy car collectors, enthusiasts and influencers.
Magalie Debellis, head of Cadillac Advance Design, shared photos of the Cadillac Celestiq Show Car at Pebble Beach on her Instagram page this past weekend. The vehicle is pictured with a series of bright red LED lights, which appear to have served as the backdrop for the nameplate’s official worldwide debut event held on Saturday evening. The Celestiq pictured is the same one in the 3D renderings that were published last month, featuring a metallic silver exterior with gloss black and chrome accents, as well as a red leather interior upholstery.
Prices for the Cadillac Celestiq will start at around $300,000, with the sedan set to be hand-built in extremely limited numbers at the GM Warren Tech Center in Michigan. A vehicle like this fits right in at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, then, which plays host to countless high-end vehicle debuts each year. Some of the high-end models presented at this year’s edition of the annual show include the new Bentley Batur luxury grand tourer and Bugatti Mistral and Koenigsegg CC850 hypercars, so it’s safe to say the Celestiq is in good company there.
The Cadillac Celestiq, which taps GM’s Ultium battery tech and Ultium Drive electric motors, will go on sale in late 2023. The luxury four-door will be highly customizable with various features and will introduce GM’s hands-free Ultra Cruise technology, a door-to-door autonomous driving assistant capable of handling up to 90 percent of the driving task.
