1. Cadillac has released a video teasing the Celestiq, an ultra-luxury EV.
2. It will be Cadillac's flagship electric vehicle, and has four-wheel steering, a full glass roof, and a range of over 300 miles from a 100 kWh battery pack.
3. The hatchback should arrive by 2025 with a starting price around $100,000.
Cadillac has teased the Celestiq, a luxury EV with an estimated range of over 300 miles. With a six-figure price, however, it certainly won't be cheap, and joins the Cadillac Lyriq in the automaker's growing EV lineup. The Celestiq is part of GM's pledge to get 30 electric vehicles on the road by 2025, and is built on the Ultium battery platform.
The Cadillac Celestiq will be a four-seater hatchback that boasts all-wheel drive and four-wheel steering. The automaker claims 300+ miles of range from an approximately 100 kWh battery pack, the latter of which will be shared with the Lyriq. For comparison, the Tesla Model S Long Range Plus benefits from 402 miles of range. When it comes to styling, the Celestiq is still a show car, so many of the appearance details are subject to change. For now though, it sits on 23-inch wheels and displays the same grille and lights as Lyriq models.
Also similar to the Lyriq, the Celestiq has a dashboard-wide LCD screen, and in the rear will be separate entertainment devices. Even more impressive still, the luxury EV has what Cadillac calls "smart glass" for a roof, one that's transparency can be controlled by each passenger.
The Cadillac Celestiq and Lyriq should arrive by 2025, with the Celestiq likely starting north of $100,000.
