Cadillac’s bespoke Celestiq EV will cost $340,000


Cadillac’s attempt to unseat Rolls-Royce as the leader in ultra-luxury vehicles now comes at a price of its own.

The 2024 Cadillac Celestiq, the automaker’s customizable, customizable electric fastback sedan, will start, start! — to $340,000. And that’s before all the expensive options and add-ons one might consider, which means Celestiq will most likely sell for well over $400,000 in most cases.

Hey, if you want to challenge Rolls-Royce, you better come with Rolls-Royce level prices!

Cadillac said the first round of Celestiq customers are already working on customizing their orders. As with other handcrafted vehicles, customers can opt for custom paint, leather and wheel colors. General Motors is taking customization to the next level with a myriad of 3D-printed parts—115 of them, to be exact, for that personal touch.

The first Celestiq will be built in December 2023 at the company’s Global Technical Center in Warren, Michigan, in a special section called the Craft Center. Only six cars will be built at a time, and Cadillac only plans to make around 500 units a year. The automaker also has a “state of the art facility” at the vanderbilt house reserved specifically for Celestiq customers when they come to customize their cars.

The low fastback shape is reminiscent of a Porsche Panamera or Mercedes-Benz EQS. The rear of the Celestiq features four sets of angled stop lights, two on each side, that extend into the wheel wells. It will surely be Celestiq’s most distinctive and polarizing design detail.

The 111kWh Ultium battery stores enough power for an estimated 300-mile range, and the Celestiq can accept a charge of up to 200kW. Each axle carries its own motor and together they produce approximately 600 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque. Plus, the company says it can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds.

The electric sedan will be the first to include GM’s new Ultra Cruise advanced driver-assist system, which the automaker says will cover “95 percent” of driving scenarios on 2 million miles of US highways. USA
