Cadillac has continued to tease its new flagship EV, the Celestiq. We do know that the Celestiq electric sedan will sit at the top of the brand’s lineup, but Cadillac hasn’t given us any details about what it will be priced at. According to sources that spoke with the Wall Street Journal, the Cadillac Celestiq is going to be quite pricey with a price tag starting around $300,000.
According to the report, the Celestiq will also go well over $300k with all the options checked. We don’t know who these sources are that revealed the pricing details, since the Journal says it only spoke to “people familiar with the matter.”
While that price tag may seem excessive, it isn’t completely unexpected. General Motors recently confirmed that the Cadillac Celestiq will be hand-built at GM’s Global Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. GM is spending $81 million to upgrade the center, which has never produced a production vehicle, since it was established in 1956. Cadillac is also only planning to build less than 500 units.
The Celestiq will be packed with lots of tech features, like a smart glass roof, which is divided into quadrants so that each passenger can adjust the level of the roof’s transparency above them. It will also feature a full-width dashboard screen and more than 100 3D-printed components.
