General Motors showed on Wednesday new electric vehicle ”Cadillac Celestiq” at the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show. The automaker described the Celestiq as an ultra-luxury, fully electric show car.
According to Cadillac director of interior design Crystal Windham, the feature complements the overall high-end nature of the car, which includes a curated selection of materials and an interior largely crafted by hand.
Moreover, a large dashboard screen stretches from pillar to pillar exists, and reminds of the recently revealed Hyperscreen of the upcoming Mercedes EQS electric sedan. Rear passengers get their own screens with active privacy.
Meanwhile, the front of the Celestiq retains Cadillac signature vertical lights but it is part of a face that is a blaze of illumination. Additionally, Cadillac fits the car with all-wheel drive and four-wheel steering.
GM is investing $27 billion to develop electric and autonomous vehicles with plans to offer 30 all-electric vehicles globally by the end of 2025. The raft of new vehicles coming will ride on the new BEV3 platform that uses the Ultium battery system developed with LG Chem that GM claims will offer up to 450 miles on a full charge.
Noteworthy, the air vehicles segment is attracting major investments from the automotive and aviation industries. Fiat Chrysler earlier announced a new partnership with air mobility company Archer to help lower costs and accelerate the launch of an eVTOL aircraft.
