General Motors (GM) recently released some pictures of Cadillac celestiq exhibition cars It is reported that the car is expected to become Cadillac's next all electric luxury car. According to the car manufacturer, it "represents the purest expression of Cadillac's design, technology and performance".
GM showed celestiq to a few reporters for the first time in the EV day activity in early 2020, but it had not publicly released any pictures of the whole vehicle at that time. The ultra luxury sedan is intended to be a companion to Cadillac lyriq, which went into production earlier this year.
Both vehicles will be built on GM's ultium electric vehicle platform, which provides power for various types and sizes of vehicles including GMC Hummer EV, Chevrolet Silverado EV and brightdrop delivery vehicles.
It has been more than a year since celestiq's last preview picture was released. The information it brings includes a four quadrant modular all glass roof - which means that everyone in the car can set their own transparency level.
Some new information about celestiq's driving assistance has been received in recent months. It is reported that this EV is expected to make its debut in 2023. It will be the first model to adopt GM's new ultra cruise advanced driving assistance system. The automobile manufacturer said that the system will cover "95% of" driving scenarios. The system is also the first system to use Qualcomm's new snapdragon ride platform. Its processing capacity is equivalent to hundreds of personal computers.
Interestingly, GM will continue to call celestiq a "show car", which means that it is only a customized vehicle for public display rather than for sale. Although this does not mean that there will be a significant difference once the mass production version is exposed, GM thinks it is still very interesting to make this distinction.
