For now the Cadillac Lyriq has been the public focus of Cadillac’s electrification efforts. That focus may soon change. A new report suggests the Cadillac Celestiq battery-electric sedan will be revealed sometime this summer.
Citing unnamed sources, Cadillac Society reports the car will be revealed in July or August of this year. Despite the possibility of a reveal this year, the car is still a couple years away from being in customer driveways.
The Celestiq will be a new flagship sedan that underscores GM’s abilities when it comes to luxury EV’s. The big sedan is expected to cost well into six-figure territory, perhaps upwards of $200,000. GM has teased the Celestiq a few times, most recently as part of tis CES Show keynote. Celestiq styling appears similar to the Lyriq with some inspiration from the 2016 Escala concept.
Celestiq will be based on GM’s BEV3 architecture, meaning it will be powered by their Ultium battery system. Given the lofty price tag, one can assume the Celestiq will usher in a few new technology features as well.
GM has not offered up a specific launch time for the Celestiq, but sources have suggested production will not start until 2023.
