The Cadillac Celestiq is extremely customizable, as GM Authority was the first to report. However, with so many options on hand, customers may need a little starter inspiration before they spec theirs as they see fit. As such, Cadillac is offering up a range of Celestiq design themes ready to go, including a theme dubbed Vale, as featured here.
The Vale Cadillac Celestiq design inspiration is meant to connote a sense of “repose, in motion and at rest,” with a palette of warm colors and “an intense focus on ultra-luxury minimalism.”
“Warmth and peace rest comfortably inside, inviting driver and passenger to share in the sublime ambience,” Cadillac states.
Outside, the Vale Cadillac Celestiq design inspiration incorporates Fitz Gray paint for the majority of the body panels, with black detailing providing an offset for the front fascia, roof, and side skirts. The wheels also show a dark finish. Meanwhile, Acier Metal trim adds an extra splash of silver, if desired.
Moving inside, the Vale design inspiration adds Camelia Leather, Sheer Gray Leather, Saturn Open Pore Wood, and Acier Stainless Steel speaker covers, the combination of which gives the cabin space a natural, almost organic feel – an interesting effect, given the plethora of technology embedded in the vehicle, including all those digital screens and LED lighting elements.
Critically, each example of the 2024 Cadillac Celestiq is hand-built at GM’s Global Technical Center in Warren, Michigan, which means customers can truly get deep in the customization process. Production figures will remain extremely low, while pricing will start at $300,000.
As for what’s under the skin, the Cadillac Celestiq rides on the GM BEV3 platform, while motivation is sourced from a 111 kWh battery pack providing juice to a two-motor powertrain. Total system output is estimated at 600 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque, enabling a sprint to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds.
