The elusive Cadillac Celestiq show car was finally revealed last month. Now, the luxury brand has released a series of photos depicting its new battery-electric flagship sedan undergoing testing with somewhat confusing camouflage.
The unique camo wrap differs from the camo pattern seen on other prototypes, featuring a starry theme that could serve as a reference for the Celestiq space-inspired nameplate. The wrap hides the finer details of the electric sedan’s design, hiding the front end behind what looks like a bunch of boxy parts. The side profile of the vehicle also appears flat under the camo, possibly due to Cadillac’s desire to keep the development surface close to the vest until the production model debuts.
Nonetheless, the vertical lighting elements are visible at the front, even though they look like placeholder clusters, not the slimmer version that will be implemented in the production version. Also visible are some cuts that were likely made to allow the front-facing camera and vehicle sensors to work.
As we can see from the side, the Cadillac Celesetiq has a low-slung sporty profile, with a wide, low-to-ground stance, and a long roofline that slopes downward behind the C-pillar in the hatchback model. style. Interestingly, the rolling stock is hidden behind a set of wheel covers.
Riding the BEV3 platform, the Cadillac Celestiq will be produced in very small numbers at the GM Global Technical Center, thanks to an $81 million investment in the facility. The luxury brand stated that more information about the production model, including availability, will be disclosed “at a later date.” Sources have indicated that interested customers should expect the Celestiq to carry a price tag of over $300,000. Recently, Cadillac’s parent company, General Motors, applied for trademarks for four Celestiq-related names – Celestiq Vale, Celestiq Mist, Celestiq Aurora and Celestiq Magnetic. The names will likely replace Cadillac’s traditional Y-trim strategy.
