The 2024 Cadillac Celestiq made its formal introduction in 2022 as the luxury brand’s all-new, all-electric flagship, offering sumptuous luxury and extreme levels of customization. Fast forward to November of this year, and GM Authority published photos of the luxury sedan’s key fob, and frankly, the fob looked pretty ordinary for a vehicle that starts at $340,000. Now, however, Cadillac has informed GM Authority that the production-spec Cadillac Celestiq key fob will be more premium than what was originally published.
For those readers who may have missed it, GM Authority recently published a series of photos captured at a Cadillac event showing what was believed at the time to be the Cadillac Celestiq key fob. During an event, a Cadillac representative told GM Authority that the Celestiq that was on display was production-ready, which also meant the key fob. Although the fob shown in the original GM Authority article did include a Habanero painted backing, matching the exterior paint of the vehicle, the rest of the fob looked to be pretty standard stuff.
Now, however, GM Authority has learned that this key fob is in fact not representative of the actual key fob that will be included with the production-spec Cadillac Celestiq.
“We intend on painting every part black and offering a more premium look on the production Celestiq key fob,” a Cadillac spokesperson told GM Authority. “Each fob will also come with a metal NFC card as we distinguish Celestiq as the flagship for the brand.”
For readers who may be unaware, an NFC card (or Near Field Communications card) incorporates wireless short-range communications technology that can be used to complete a variety of simple tasks.
GM Authority asked for further details regarding the “more premium look” of the Cadillac Celestiq key fob, to which Cadillac responded:
“Unfortunately, we cannot share additional information at this time.”
