Cadillac officials have previously announced the details of the Celestiq. The initial announcement mostly shows the fashion needs and streamlined design of the Cadillac Celestiq. This electric car comes with a right front quarter panel, exquisite door hinges, premium taillights and attractive body contours. There are reports that this new car is a flagship pure electric sedan based on the Ultium platform. The care will be official this summer but it will debut in the market in 2023. It will be the first model to use GM’s new Ultra Cruise advanced driver assistance system.
Officials say the system will cover 95% of driving scenarios. Additionally, the sedan will be a first for Cadillac and will be custom-built at an engineering centre near Detroit. GM also revealed that the new car will compete in the “ultra-luxury segment” and will even be “hand-built” – which would also result in a very low-volume vehicle.
Of course, we haven’t seen the details of the Cadillac Celestiq yet, but the Wall Street Journal says the flagship model will be more than just a show car. According to internal reports, this car will start at about $300,000. However, there is no official price tag for this car as of now.
Cadillac Celestiq will rival some good cars
This car isn’t as good as a top-tier McLaren or Aston Martin. Nevertheless, it’s enough to rival a Rolls-Royce, Ferrari, or Bentley. According to Realtor data, the median house price in the United States is $447,000. This means that the Cadillac Celestiq is equivalent to most of the suite. According to reports, the Celestiq will have a number of luxury features. This car will come with a custom cabin wood trim and the latest version of the driver assistance system.
However, if the price is so high, it will be difficult for it to monopolize the luxury electric car market for a long time. After all, automakers such as Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and Rolls-Royce are also developing high-end electric vehicles and plan to sell only electric vehicles by 2030.
