In 2022, General Motors introduced the Cadillac Celestiq, their top-of-the-line electric vehicle (EV). The car is expected to have a range of 300 miles and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. Along with these impressive specifications, the Celestiq also boasts a range of luxurious features. However, the entry-level configuration comes with a hefty price tag of around $340,000, according to Cadillac’s CMO, Melissa Grady Dias. While the company claims there is “extremely high demand” for the Celestiq, it’s unclear what exactly qualifies as “extremely high demand” given the vehicle’s pricing and General Motors’ history with launching new EVs.
Currently, the Celestiq is being built by hand at the GM Global Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. The fact that it is hand-built suggests that there will be a limited number of units available. Despite this, Cadillac is not compromising on features and possibilities. The vehicle will be equipped with Ultra Cruise, an advanced hands-free driver assistance suite that includes features such as 360-degree vehicle views and a smart glass roof. Coupled with its luxurious interior, the Celestiq is undoubtedly targeted towards those who have some extra money to spare.
