The Cadillac Celestiq made its formal introduction last year, debuting as the luxury marque’s flagship luxury sedan filled to bursting with high-end features and customization opportunities. Pricing starts around the $340,000 mark. Naturally, a vehicle like that will be rather exclusive, and in fact, production volume for the new Celestiq will be extremely small, as GM Authority covered previously. But the question is this – just how small will production be, exactly?
Of course, General Motors isn’t exactly forthcoming when it comes to production numbers for the Cadillac Celestiq. That said, a Cadillac spokesperson has shared with GM Authority that while exact production numbers are still being determined, the automaker is planning on “building less than two a day.”
Meanwhile, GM Authority sources indicate that GM is planning to build between 100 and 150 units of the Cadillac Celestiq annually.
It should also be noted that each example will be assembled “by hand” at the automaker’s Global Technical Center in Warren, Michigan, making the Cadillac Celestiq the first production vehicle to be built at the historic facility. Vehicle availability is by waitlist only.
Additionally, each example will be extremely customizable, per yet another GM Authority exclusive. Essentially, Cadillac Celestiq customers will be able to tailor their new sedan to exacting detail, with a broad range of materials, finishes, colors, and more on offer. The level of customization goes so far as to offer customers a chance to use wood sourced from a tree on their property for the interior trim, if desired.
As for the technical specs, the 2024 Cadillac Celestiq is motivated by a 111-kWh GM Ultium battery pack and two GM Ultium Drive motors, with a combined system output of 600 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque (figures which could be considered somewhat underpowered, despite a sprint to 60 mph in less than four seconds.). The GM BEV3 platform provides the underpinnings.
Of course, we want to know – how many examples of the Cadillac Celestiq should GM build per year, given the halo sedan’s price and perceived exclusivity?
