Revealed just a few months ago and recently caught testing in near-production form, the bespoke 2024 Cadillac Celestiq represents the much-anticipated flagship in the luxury marque’s lineup, offering premium technologies like Ultra Cruise and SPD SmartGlass along with a wide range of customization options to make every unit unique. Unsurprisingly, all of that comes at a cost, and Cadillac previously stated that the Celestiq’s price tag would start north of $300,000. Now, a more specific number has been revealed, putting the Celestiq’s price point well above that initial figure.
Cadillac CMO Melissa Grady Dias took to social media to break the news that interested customers can now begin the 2024 Cadillac Celestiq design and customization process. While much of the ultra-luxury electric sedan’s price will be determined by what options are chosen, Dias notes that “the bespoke spirit of Celestiq will be determined by the client’s level of curation, but the blank canvas will start at approximately $340,000 MSRP.”
It’s important to note that the $340,000 figure does not include any Destination Freight Charge, tax, title, license, dealer fees or optional equipment. And, like always, the the dealer will set the final price for the Celestiq.
As previously mentioned, each unit of the 2024 Cadillac Celestiq will be specially commissioned and hand-built with materials and details specially selected by the customer, who will work hand-in-hand with their preferred dealer and the Cadillac design team. A plethora of features will be included as standard, such as Magnetic Ride Control, Adaptive Air Suspension, Active Rear Steering and advanced AWD facilitated by an electric motor mounted on each axle. The Celestiq will also offer select design themes, including Aurora, Magnetic, Mist and Vale.
In terms of power, the 2024 Cadillac Celestiq features a 111 kWh battery pack and a dual-motor all-wheel-drive propulsion system. Cadillac estimates its setup will be good for approximately 300 miles of driving range on a single charge while providing a dizzying 600 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque. Under the sheetmetal is the BEV3 platform, an architecture that was developed from the ground up to exclusively underpin battery electric vehicles.
