Back in December 2023, GM Authority reported on a Cadillac Celestiq painted in a shockingly-green exterior paint color that demanded attention everywhere it went. Now, we’ve learned exactly what this color is called.
General Motors calls the green paint hue on the uber-luxury sedan Venom. This is certainly a fitting name when considering how bright and striking the color is.
As a reminder, the Celestiq stands as the pinnacle of the luxury marque’s lineup. To help achieve this effect, the luxury sedan can be customized to its buyers’ imagination to create a unique, one-of-one vehicle.
Of course, this ideal applies to the interior as well, which features hand-finished trim pieces throughout the cabin. A 55-inch coast-to-coast center screen is just one of five high-definition displays, as rear-seat passengers also get an advanced 12.6-inch-diagonal displays. Meanwhile, an all-glass roof panel – which features Suspended Particle Device (SPD) technology – allows variable transmission of sunlight into the cabin area.
In regard to structure, the GM BEV3 platform underpins the Celestiq, and features a 111 kWh battery pack that powers an advanced all-wheel drivetrain. Total system output is rated by GM at 600 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque, which results in a claimed 0-60 acceleration time of 3.8 seconds.
Production officially commenced at the GM Global Technical Center in Michigan in December 2023, with availability by waitlist only and pricing starting around the $340,000 mark. Additionally, Celestiq examples will be built by hand, with GM expecting that only two vehicles will be built per day, or between 100 and 150 units annually.
