Cadillac Celestiq EV revealed with Ultra Cruise and Smart Glass roof as rumors suggest it will cost US$300,000
Cadillac has unveiled the first concept for the Celestiq, an all-electric sedan. A 2025 production model of the “ultra-luxury” EV will go on sale in 2024. The company has revealed a host of unusual features for the vehicle. For example, electronic digital blinds can provide privacy for passengers in the back of the car and prevent distractions for the driver.
Screens are fitted to the back of the front headrests, with a touchscreen console between the seats. Plus, each passenger can customize the lighting in their portion of the vehicle using the Smart Glass Roof. The roof is divided into four quadrants, and Suspended Particle Device technology allows you to alter the transparency of the glass in your segment.
Inside the car are five interactive LED displays, including a 55-in screen that runs the length of the dashboard. The vehicle will feature Ultra Cruise hands-free driver assistance technology, allowing you to cruise on city streets and highways. The EV will be powered by the Ultrium powertrain, with all-wheel drive and four-wheel steering.
Further details about the car, such as its battery range and the price, are yet to be confirmed. Rumors suggest that the sedan could start at around US$300,000, competing with the Porsche Taycan Turbo S and Tesla Model X Plaid. Cadillac could verify more information about the vehicle at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August, where the EV is due to be shown.
