The Cadillac Celestiq electric sedan will receive a record price tag for the American brand — about 300 thousand dollars, The Wall Street Journal reports, citing insiders. The battery-powered sedan will not only assume the role of the flagship but will also become the most luxurious Cadillac model with which the brand intends to compete for customers in the luxury segment. For comparison, about 350 thousand dollars are being asked for Rolls-Royce Ghost.

According to insiders, 300 thousand dollars is the approximate initial price of Cadillac Celestiq. As the list of equipment options is filled, it will increase, and in terms of customization, Celestiq will even be able to compete with Bentley and Rolls-Royce cars.

At the moment, it is known that the basis of the Celestiq will be the Ultium platform, on which the first production Cadillac electric car, the Lyriq crossover, is based. It is expected that on one full charge of the traction battery, the sedan will be able to travel up to 650 kilometers, and it will be possible to replenish the energy reserve from a 350-kilowatt terminal. The equipment will also include matrix headlights and, probably, a proprietary UltraCruise autopilot.

Cadillac has already revealed fragments of the exterior and interior in a series of teasers showing special attention to detail. They show wheels, hood, and lights, leather chairs with a complex design, as well as some controls.

The premiere of Cadillac’s all-electric flagship is scheduled for the end of July. Small-scale production will start before the end of 2023 in Warren, Michigan, where the Celestiq will be assembled to order and mainly manually, and using 3D printing technologies. The production volume will be limited to about five hundred copies per year.
