Everyone in Thornhill, North York, Markham, Richmond Hill, the Greater Toronto Area, and beyond knows that Cadillac produces some of the finest and most luxurious vehicles in North America. However, the 2024 Cadillac CELESTIQ is an entirely new flagship model that will take the brand to a different level of luxury and exclusivity. The CELESTIQ is a full-size luxury sedan, unlike anything Cadillac has produced before.
Even though the 2024 Cadillac CELESTIQ gets classified as a full-size luxury sedan EV, it’s so much more than that almost derisory description. The CELESTIQ is a full-size sedan, approximately as long as the brand’s flagship SUV, with a liftback at the rear instead of a traditional trunk. A fabulously potent battery-electric powertrain powers the CELESTIQ, and every cutting-edge driver aid you can think of (and some new ones) is available.
However, the exclusivity and the production set the 2024 Cadillac CELESTIQ apart from anything the brand has produced so far in its illustrious history. Every unit gets built in a newly completed “clean room” low-volume assembly facility located at the General Motors Global Technical Center in Michigan. A maximum of six cars at any time will be in production, guaranteeing a methodical and unrushed build process with a great deal of hand assembly involved. Each model will be a bespoke order built to the chosen specifications of the person who orders it.
The main focus of the 2024 Cadillac CELESTIQ isn’t necessarily its staggering performance, but it’s an essential aspect of this fantastic new car that is more than worthy of discussion. The CELESTIQ has a two-motor battery-electric powertrain sending 600 horsepower and 640 lb.-ft. of torque to all four wheels. Cadillac says the powertrain will propel the car from 0 to 100 kp/h in less than four seconds, but comfort and ride quality remain the car’s priorities.
The driving range on a full charge of the CELESTIQ’s 111-kWh battery pack is an estimated 483 km, and any noise that may escape the meticulous sound-proofing gets counteracted by noise cancellation generated through the 1000-Watt 38-speaker audio system. When a DC rapid charging facility is available, an extra 125 km of range can be added in 10 minutes as a quick “top-off.”
We already expect to find the latest technology and luxury features in Cadillac’s most upscale models, but the 2024 Cadillac CELESTIQ is from another planet in that regard. To begin with, the instrument panel is one giant digital display that allows the driver to control the CELESTIQ’s technological powerhouse of a cabin effortlessly. Four bucket seats create individual bubbles of luxury space for each occupant to enjoy. Even the roof is an electrochromic glass panel you can adjust from transparent to opaque, providing every passenger control of their individual corner of the sky.
The cabin is awash with the finest leathers available in almost any colour imaginable, and many other exciting materials get employed throughout the interior as accents. While the dash is dominated by a combined 55 inches of digital display, rear-seat passengers are not left out as they get individual 12.6-inch displays for viewing movies, surfing the internet, or controlling the car’s stereo system. A raft of driver-assistance features is inevitably included onboard, from things as familiar as automated emergency braking to advanced hands-free driving via GM’s new Ultra Cruise system.
The 2024 Cadillac CELESTIQ is a new flagship model for the brand, but it’s also so much more than that. The CELESTIQ is a car that propels the brand into the most rarified atmosphere of the luxury auto market and is unlike anything Cadillac has produced to date.
