Earlier this month, Cadillac shared photos of a Cadillac Celestiq prototype undergoing testing at the luxury marque’s property, giving us our first glimpse of the ultra-luxury electric sedan that’s coming on the road. Now, Cadillac Society A look at another Celestiq prototype undergoing testing, this time on public roads, shows us some new details about the massive vehicle.
While this Cadillac Celestiq prototype is certainly clad in a healthy camo, it’s quite different from the space aesthetic wrap seen on the prototype released by Cadillac. The wrap pattern makes the Celestiq’s body lines difficult to see, but the cut in the wrap on the vehicle’s front fascia gives us a decent look at the production headlights. There’s also a cutout in the center of the “grill”, likely to avoid blocking the front-facing camera and/or sensor. Also note the outside mirrors, which are quite large, especially compared to the small unit in the Celestiq show car.
Additionally, these photos of the Cadillac Celestiq prototype do a good job of showcasing the profile of the fastback-like model, which drops down to the large rear. It still rolls over the wheels hidden behind a flat wheel cover, obscuring the spoke design from view. Whatever the spoke pattern, the wheel does a good job of filling the wheel holes.
At the rear, the Celestiq prototype features replacement taillights, as opposed to the production headlights up front. Interestingly, the camo appears to cover the top tail lights positioned at the ends of the sheet metal, making the design somewhat unattractive. Thankfully, that’s the result of camouflage, as the production model will break the sheet metal after the rear door glass, and in a rather interesting way.
The Cadillac Celestiq will be assembled in very small quantities at the GM Global Technical Center, where customers will be able to control every aspect of their ultra-luxury electric sedan. Sources have indicated that interested customers should expect the Celestiq to carry a price tag of over $300,000. Therefore, it will only be marketed in the “well-off” community. Recently, Cadillac’s parent company, General Motors, filed to trademark four Celestiq-related names – Celestiq Vale, Celestiq Mist, Celestiq Aurora and Celestiq Magnetic, which are likely to serve as color and/or design themes for future flagship models.
