Celestiq will be brand’s luxury flagship
Pillar to pillar screen shows no interruptions
Cadillac has just revealed a new sneak peek of the ultra-luxury electric flagship the company has planned. The Cadillac Celestiq will add features like specially curated hand-crafted materials, a screen that’ll make the one in your living room look like it came from the 1960s, and a roof that can be configured for each of the four occupants.
That pillar to pillar display spans the entire width of the car, and unlike the just-revealed Mercedes-Benz Hyperscreen, this curved display looks to be all one solid display. Or at least it has a number of panels that leave no visible gap in the span. The screen also offers what Cadillac calls “active privacy” to help stop driver distraction. Rear seat passengers get their own screens for entertainment, again with active privacy.
Look up in the Celestiq, and you’ll see a full glass roof that is divided into four quadrants. Each quadrant can have its tint changed individually using suspended particle device smart glass. So one rear seat passenger can look up while the other is shaded. The glass tint will also change colours to match the car’s current ambience and mood settings.
The vehicle will be all-wheel drive and use all-wheel steering, using GM’s Ultium battery and driveline system. Cadillac says that the vehicle will “reimagine what it means to be a passenger” thanks to the level of tech and luxury contained inside.
Each of the hand-built cars will be designed to reflect its owner’s individuality, Cadillac says. This is the model we expect to come in well over six-figures, boasting a top of the range figure for battery size and motor performance. This is Cadillac’s attempt to go even beyond the likes of the Mercedes-Benz EQS, so it’s certainly a big deal even if bound for low production.
