Set to serve as the flagship of the Cadillac lineup and offer obscene levels of customization, the Cadillac Celestiq is a vehicle unlike anything in General Motors’ current product lineup. Now, GM Authority has recently captured photos of the uber-luxurious sedan’s keyfob.
Interestingly, the keyfob of the Celestiq appears to be similar to that of any other Cadillac model, albeit it does include an extra button for the power-operated driver door, as the door opens by itself without the need to pull on the handle. This may sound odd to some, as General Motors has claimed that the Celestiq is a bespoke work of art.
Flipping the keyfob over onto its backside, we find that it has been color-matched to its vehicle. In this circumstance, the keyfob is painted in the Habanero exterior paint color.
As a reminder, the Cadillac Celestiq is positioned as the pinnacle of the Cadillac – and General Motors – lineup. To this end, the Detroit-based automaker is pulling out all the stops to make the Celestiq stand out from the crowd. With this in mind, the exterior styling is designed to represent the avant-garde, with bold themes found throughout.
Moving to the interior, hand-finished trim pieces are featured throughout the cabin. A 55-inch coast-to-coast center screen is only one of five high-definition displays found throughout the vehicle, as rear-seat passengers get their own advanced 12.6-inch-diagonal displays. Meanwhile, above the occupants’ heads sits an all-glass roof panel using Suspended Particle Device (SPD) to allow variable transmission of sunlight into the cabin.
Under the body panels, the 2024 Celestiq rides on the GM BEV3 platform. By utilizing a 111-kWh battery pack to power an advanced AWD system, total output is a GM-estimated 600 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque, which ultimately results in a 0-60 acceleration of 3.8 seconds.
Production is currently scheduled to kick off at the GM Global Technical Center in Warren, Michigan in December 2023, while availability is by waitlist only. In addition, units will be built by hand, and General Motors expects that only two vehicles will be built per day.
