New 2024 Cadillac Celestiq Release Date, Rumors, Electric – The 2024 Cadillac Celestiq will be a $200,000 hand-assembled all-electric sedan flagship when it goes on sale. Construction numbers are expected to be limited, while the annual allotment remains unknown. The Celestiq will be constructed on GM’s new flexible modular Ultium platform and equipped with all-wheel drive and four-wheel steering.
A range of at least 400 miles is planned. A cutting-edge glass roof with four-quadrant, suspended-particle-device smart glass will be standard, with each tenant can modify the roof’s transparency. Additionally, there will be a 33-inch display and a range of hand-crafted materials on the inside.
2024 Cadillac Celestiq Redesign
Although the 2024 Cadillac Celestiq is a “blank-slate” design, it is undeniably Cadillac. The aggressive front grille is defined by the black crystal and an attention-grabbing lighting pattern that extends along the sides and bottom, enclosing the brand’s logo. Rather than being integrated into the headlight assembly, LED daytime running lights are two massive strips mounted on either side of the front end. Above them are ultra-narrow LEDs.
Split taillights begin on the C-pillars and extend downward into the rear glass. The light design is broken in half by an additional set of long lights on either side of the rear bumper. Standard equipment includes a pair of 20-inch split six-spoke alloy wheels, while 22-inch wheels are available as an option. Only two exterior colors are available: Satin Steel Metallic and Stellar Black Metallic. As seen below, the former is quite gorgeous with its black roof and lower body panels.
The interior design is simple and high-tech. A big 33-inch curved LED display capable of displaying over one billion colors is included as standard. The driver’s gauge cluster and the touchscreen display are both housed in this compartment. The 2024 Cadillac Celestiq controls are situated beneath the touchscreen in a single horizontal strip slanted slightly toward the driver. A 19-speaker AKG Studio audio system with headrest speakers is included as standard equipment. The inside is available in two colors: Sky Cool Gray and Noir.
Controls for speaker volume, Bluetooth, and other infotainment system functions are located on either side of the three-spoke steering wheel. The center console is divided into two sections; the first has the gear selection dial, while the second contains two cupholders. Additionally, it incorporates an advanced noise-cancelling technology. The designers paid close attention to even the smallest elements.
The 2024 Cadillac Celestiq will come standard with rear-wheel drive and a rear-axle electric motor; all-wheel drive will be offered as an option, requiring the addition of a second motor to power the front wheels. Cadillac has been mum about the all-wheel-drive engine for the Cadillac Celestiq, so we have no idea how much engine it will generate; the rear-wheel drive option is projected to generate 340 horsepower. In any event, acceleration will be quick, at least at low speeds, because an electric motor’s power supply is immediate.
The Cadillac Celestiq is dubbed the Ultium. The factory can now produce batteries with capacities ranging from 50.0 kWh to 200 kWh, with the largest capacity reserved for huge electric pickup trucks such as the next GMC Hummer EV SUT. According to Cadillac, the Cadillac Celestiq will include a battery with a capacity of around 100 kWh and a range of more than 300 miles on a single charge.
2024 Cadillac Celestiq Release Date and Price
Having said that, this degree of luxury and spaciousness is not cheap.

The Premium Luxury model retails for $82,995, while the Sport model retails for $85,595.
