One in specific, the impending Cadillac Celestiq, acquired some further time and consideration, and there are some pretty awesome features on board.

Crystal Windham, Cadillac’s director of interior design and style, released a transient preview of the Cadillac Celestiq, which she pronounces “Ce-Much less-tick.” Standing in advance of a shadowy Celestiq, probably even now deep in the prototype stage, we had been capable to consider in some exciting angles.

Cadillac Celestiq: The long run of luxurious


Whilst the exterior is promising, the inside seems to be to genuinely ramp matters up. The Celestiq will have a clever electrochromic glass roof, which utilizes electrical power to dim the glass masking virtually the entire roof. That aspect isn’t new, but what is exceptional here is the fact that the roof is split into four quadrants, every capable of dimming to a various stage. This way, you do not require to discount with yet another occupant about how a lot mild should really enter the cabin.

In addition to the intelligent glass overhead, screens will perform a significant portion within the Celestiq. On the heels of Mercedes-Benz’s Hyperscreen announcement, it seems Cadillac is cooking up a little something comparable. The Celestiq’s dashboard will sport a pillar-to-pillar monitor that will give both of those front occupants a complete ton of authentic estate for infotainment and more. The rear passengers would not be remaining in the cold, both, with personalised rear screens in the again, far too.

Staying ready to dim an complete roof panel is awesome, but only a portion of it? Which is even cooler.

Cadillac 1st introduced the Celestiq in early 2020, but we haven’t listened to much about it since. Rocking GM’s new Ultium battery process, Cadillac introduced — perhaps unsurprisingly — that the Celestiq will have all-wheel push. It’ll also have four-wheel steering, which need to make it less difficult to pilot all over city at very low speeds while also boosting significant-velocity agility.

We are however not absolutely sure when Cadillac intends to pull back again the veil in total, but getting a closer look at the Celestiq has us thrilled to see additional. Preserve your eyes on Roadshow for far more data about the Celestiq, as effectively as a bevy of new electrified GM vehicles heading to sellers over the upcoming a number of yrs.
