The 2024 Cadillac Celestiq was spotted testing on public roads in North America ahead of its expected global presentation later this year.
Earlier this month, Cadillac released its own official images of a camouflaged prototype in a different camouflage wrapper. But it was just a carefully orchestrated Caddy marketing ploy. These new unofficial images show that Celestiq is in the process of real development. The car looks huge.
“Most likely, with a wheelbase of about 3.18 m, the Celestiq has already begun to appear on the streets, especially with a fastback-style rear, which sets it apart from more traditional rivals in the form of luxury sedans such as Mercedes S-Class and Bentley Flying Spur.”
The images also show the location of the charging port door just behind the front wheel on the driver’s side and the characteristic trim detail above it, taken from the concept. The lid is also visible on the car in a blue wrapper.
The disguise covers the upper part of the rear and the headlights. But we can see that the contours of the rear pillar, and the location, and shape of the headlights correspond to the concept.
It is unclear how much the interior of the production car meets the promises of the concept. It featured a retro design with red leather inserts and a giant 55-inch digital dashboard.
Although Cadillac will load the luxury electric car with gadgets, including GM’s autonomous Ultra Cruise technology, it claims that the glamorous style is inspired by classic 20th-century Cadillacs, including V16 and 1957 Eldorado Brougham cars.
