Detroit – Cadillac has provided a sneak peek at the upcoming ultra-luxury, fully electric CELESTIQ show car. Designed to set a new standard for luxury EVs, the CELESTIQ embodies Cadillac’s commitment to reimagining what’s possible in design and technology.
The foundation of CELESTIQ is the modular Ultium battery platform, which enables greater design flexibility. The CELESTIQ design and engineering teams took advantage of the new space and explored opportunities to artfully integrate cutting-edge technology. The result is a stunning vehicle with a dramatic presence, a low profile, and rearward proportions.
Each vehicle offers a curated selection of hand-crafted materials, and each CELESTIQ will be designed to reflect the individuality of its owner. The vehicles will feature all-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, and a full-glass roof.
Inside the cabin, CELESTIQ takes the artful integration of technology to new heights, with a customizable experience for drivers and passengers alike.
CELESTIQ’s roof is expected to be one of the first to feature a four-quadrant, suspended-particle-device smart glass. With this smart glass, each occupant of the vehicle can set their own level of roof transparency. The individualized experience shared by each occupant will be a signature aspect of the Cadillac CELESTIQ.
The driver and front-seat passenger will enjoy a pillar-to-pillar freeform display with active privacy to help mitigate driver distraction while rear-seat passengers have personalized entertainment screens. Console screens between seats in the front and back will separate individualized comfort settings from entertainment displays to minimize distractions.
As Cadillac’s future flagship sedan, the CELESTIQ show car embodies Cadillac’s pioneering spirit and focus on setting the standard for luxury EVs.
Another major innovation for Cadillac that was revealed at this year’s CES, as part of General Motors’s ‘Everybody In’ campaign, was the Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) air taxi – an electric aircraft capable of vertical takeoff and landing. The design gives a glimpse of what the future would look like, a time when personal flying technology is possible and it reimagines modern mobility.
