Cadillac will sell electric cars. It has already announced its first model, the Cadillac Lyriq, a huge SUV with a 33-inch screen. But it will not be the only model that the historic American brand will sell.
He will be joined in 2024 by Cadillac Celestiq, a huge sedan that resumes with the huge Cadillacs of the 60s and 70s in terms of dimensions. The Detroit brand has taken one of the first prototypes of the Celestiq for a walk, the future flagship Of the brand.
Although the final design is not yet known, the lines of the Celestiq concept car presented last July can be seen. The nose, silhouette and rear end all match, suggesting that the stock Celestiq will look a lot like the concept car. It is undoubtedly an original design and light years from the path chosen by Dodge that plays the card of nostalgia.
Although Cadillac pulls from the newspaper library to explain the design of the Celestiq. It would be inspired by pre-war Cadillac V16s and the 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham. The aesthetic cues on those cars are too subtle to give it a vintage feel. However, the dimensions of this flagship are worthy of…a ship.
Ode to excess
Officially, Cadillac has not revealed the final dimensions of the car. Even so, it has all the earmarks of being on par with the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class (5.47 m) and Bentley Flying Spur. However, the Celestiq’s lower roofline and even lower ground clearance make the car feel longer than it actually is.
It is unclear whether the camouflage, formed by Cadillac’s weapons, increases or decreases the effect. In any case, it is enormous, to get an idea, it equips 23 inch wheels front and back and they don’t look as big in the photos.
Much of the front end shares its look with the Cadillac Lyriq, but by following the strong, flowing lines to the rear, we’ll see a totally new design for the brand. It’s so new that the Celestiq has a fastback body. What has never been seen for decades in a Cadillac destined to be the maximum exponent of the brand.
Cadillac not only showed what the future Celestiq would look like with the prototype. He also showed off some of the new onboard technology he plans to introduce in the production version, like interactive screens.
In fact, there are five interactive LED screens inside, including a 55-inch unit that spans the full width of the dashboard. It’s like someone at Cadillac has been looking at the Mercedes EQS and thought “hold my bourbon.”
Although a prototype has already been seen on the road, the production Celestiq will start shipping in 2024. In principle, it will use the next generation of GM Ultium batteries and should provide at least 500 km of autonomy. On the other hand, it is also expected to be Cadillac’s most expensive car. It is rumored that it will cost between 200,000 and 300,000 dollars.
