Cadillac previews Celestiq electric sedan

Cadillac recently unveiled its all-electric Celestiq show car, which the company says is conceived to lead Cadillac’s electric future. The vehicle serves as a touchstone for the Cadillac design and engineering teams, who continue to develop Celestiq as it moves closer to production, the company says.

Highlights of Cadillac’s show car include five high-definition, advanced LED interactive displays, including a 55-in.-diagonal advanced LED display, along with what the company expects to be industry firsts, such as a variable-transmission Smart Glass Roof and Ultra Cruise, General Motors’ next evolution of available hands-free driver assistance technology which Cadillac plans to offer on Celestiq.

The Smart Glass Roof features Suspended Particle Device (SPD) technology that allows for four zones of variable lighting, enabling passengers to fine-tune their cabin experience for completely personalized comfort and visibility. Additionally, the 55-in.-diagonal advanced LED display introduces a passenger display with electronic digital blinds, an active privacy technology, which is designed to allow passengers to enjoy video content while blocking it from the view of the driver, the company says.

Availability for the production version of Celestiq will be announced at a later date. GM says it is investing $81 million to support its assembly at GM’s Global Technical Center. The Celestiq will be the first production vehicle built there since the center’s inauguration in May 1956.
