- Cadillac demonstrated a prototype of the future Celestic.
- The new electric hatchback is on display before its first engineering ride at the GM Technical Center in Warren, Michigan.
- We don’t have any information on when the Celestiq will hit dealerships.
This morning, Cadillac shared the photos on its social platforms of its new flagship EV, the Celestiq, begins road testing in prototype form. As it undergoes its first drive at GM’s Warren, Michigan facility, we can see that the production model should look very close to concept photos released just over a month ago. The Celestiq is said to go on sale sometime in 2024.
The Celestiq pictured here is dressed in blue and white camo with hundreds of Cadillac badges in various orientations creating a virtual illusion. But the camo can’t hide how massive it is, and its silhouette is extremely dramatic on the road. The main difference we can tell from the concept is that this prototype has real side mirrors.
The electric hatchback is slated for release as a 2025 model year, though Cadillac has yet to announce when exactly deliveries will begin. We also don’t have any information on how many cars Cadillac plans to produce, but production will be kept low to ensure exclusivity.
The Celestiq EV uses GM’s Ultium battery technology, and we expect it to offer a large battery that should provide at least 300 miles of range on a single charge. Its competitors such as Tesla Model S and Bright air offer over 400 and 500 miles respectively.
Base MSRP for the wraparound electric hatchback has yet to be announced, but we expect it to be between $200,000 and $300,000. The Celestiq will be handcrafted and customers will be able to customize their vehicle to a great extent.
Look for more details on the 2025 Celestiq as Cadillac prepares this new electric hatchback for production and works with customers to spec and build their vehicles before final delivery.
