Cadillac Celestiq Unveiled: Glimpse the Future of Luxury Electric Cars


The 2024 Cadillac Celestiq, an all-electric fastback sedan, is set to start production in December 2023. However, it won’t be a common sight on local dealer showroom floors. Instead, each Celestiq will be special-ordered and tailored to individual customer specifications. Expect it to be delivered discreetly, much like a bespoke creation. The anticipated base price for this ultra-luxe EV is over $300,000.

The planned output will be just two models a day for global consumption, starting in December 2023. No more than six vehicles will be in the assembly process at any one time. 

All who commission a Celestiq will work through a dealer and with a concierge who will connect them with the GM designer. Buyers can go to Michigan to go over ideas and swatches, or the GM designer can travel to them. 

Since 115 parts are 3D printed, intricate personalized details are bound by little more than your imagination.  

Keep reading for the latest information about the Cadillac Celestiq, an ultra-luxury electric vehicle that embodies futuristic design and avant-garde spirit.

EV Motor, Power, and Performance

A large part of the Celestiq is customizable, but there’s one element that won’t be: the powertrain. All models come with a dual motor all-wheel drive electric powertrain. Cadillac estimates it will make around 600 horsepower, which should be enough to launch the car to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. Such an impressive figure puts it in the same league as entry-level models of the Porsche Taycan and the Audi e-tron GT. 

Standard features include an adaptive air suspension system and a rear-wheel steering feature that allows this long sedan to negotiate tight spots and swing tighter u-turns.  

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

The electrons to power the Celestiq come from an Ultium battery pack, capable of delivering around 300 miles of EPA-estimated driving range per charge. This might sound impressive but it falls short of the mark when compared with the Tesla Model S which has a driving range of 402 miles and the Lucid Air sedan which boasts a range of up to 516 miles. 

You can recharge the Cadillac Celestiq using a DC fast charging connection. Cadillac is saying that on a 200-kW connection, the battery can be juiced with 78 miles of range in only 10 minutes.

Home charging (limited to slower Level2 AC charging) will take longer the Celestiq will be part of the Ultium Charge 360 charging system with access to plugs throughout North America.  

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPGe

Information about the Celestiq’s fuel economy range is yet to be released and you’ll probably have to wait some time to find out how efficient this electric luxury sedan really is. When the fuel economy figures are released, you’ll find them on the EPA’s website

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

There are a lot of nifty features inside the driving and passenger space, starting with an instrument panel that’s one giant digital display. 

Four bucket seats allow every occupant of the vehicle to enjoy their own bubble of space.

An electrochromic glass panel that can be switched from transparent to opaque is used for the roof, with each passenger getting the option to control their own little corner of the sky. 

Much of the cabin is lined with buttery leather, available in almost any color you can think of, with other interesting materials used for accents. The cargo area is also lined with leather, generous in size, and features attractive metal inlays on the floor.  

The car has an ambient interior lighting system that shines through the perforated ecologically sourced open-pore wood. 

We should point out that the Celestiq is a hatchback rather than a traditional three-box sedan, much the same as the Kia Stinger and the Audi A7.

Acoustic laminated glass windows help isolate road sounds, as does the 7.5mm thick glass roof and Active Road Noise Cancellation.  

Infotainment and Connectivity

Generally, luxury cars boast large infotainment displays of between 10 and 12 inches. However, the Celestiq spans the entire width of the dashboard and is 55 inches wide, similar to the Mercedes's new hyperscreen. 

In the rear of the vehicle are two 12.6-inch displays for watching movies or checking the internet. They are also for controlling the car’s stereo system which boasts a 38-speaker AKG Studio Reference stereo system, three amplifiers, and 3D surround sound. 

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

There are a host of driver-assistance features from the most basic automated emergency braking to advanced hands-free driving via GM’s new Ultra Cruise system.

Key safety and driver-assistance features include:

  • Automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
  • Adaptive cruise control with hands-free driving mode


The Celestiq claims to be a driver’s car. It uses adaptive air suspension, active rear steering, magnetic ride control, active roll control with stabilizer bars, 23-inch tures designed specifically for the car with self-sealing technology and foam inserts, electric power steering, suspension isolators, and an active rear spoiler that deploys at lower speeds. 

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

All Cadillac models come with a powertrain warranty that’s better than other luxury sedans. Cadillac currently covers the first dealer maintenance visit. 

  • Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers six years or 70,000
  • Electric components are covered for eight years or 100,000 miles
  • Complimentary maintenance is covered for the first year.
