Design Your Luxury EV: Cadillac Celestiq Private Studio

Configuring GM’s Ultra-Luxury EV Sedan At Michigan Tech Center

Beginning this summertime, Cadillac Celestiq clientele will cooperate with makers to fabricate their individualized ultra-extravagant and hi-tech all-electric car out of a recently constructed design studio. GM’s luxurious marque has declared it is crafting what they precisely brand as the Cadillac House Vanderbilt, a structure which is positioned at the automaker’s vast Global Technical Center domain in Warren, Michigan.

The Cadillac House is taking its appellation of Vanderbilt from Suzanne Vanderbilt, who commenced her labor at GM Design to way back 1955 – when hardly any females were in the field. Her major achievements include the Baroness, the 1958 Eldorado Seville Coupe, and the Cadillac Saxony convertible.

Vanderbilt participated in joint efforts with the Advanced Interior and Research Studios to achieve progressions in designing better secured car interiors. Ahead of retiring in 1977, Vanderbilt obtained two patents.

In 2014, the GM Global Technical Center was granted National Historic Landmark status in recognition of its position as an exemplar of midcentury design. It was also the first significant undertaking for architect Eero Saarinen. The award-winning one storey facility had previously served as a restaurant, where patrons could savor its stepped floor elevation and glass curtain wall giving an extraordinary vista over the campus. Remodeling the run-down building into a high-tech design studio with improved customer access is an astute action not solely for Celestiq but, ideally, foreseeable limited editions of Cadillac as well.

“From beginning to end, the process is carefully crafted,” declared Melissa Grady Dias, Cadillac’s global chief marketing officer. “We will provide an extensive selection of commission possibilities regardless of where our customers decide to collaborate with the Cadillac team, so that every desire for their vehicle can be realized. Each Celestiq is tailored to match its owner’s preferences, which are communicated directly to the design team.”

The exquisite Celestiq sedans will be manufactured with the utmost precision at the nearby Artisan Center. Cadillac has made it unmistakably clear that the starting rate of $300,000 for the Celestiq does not compare with any previously produced GM car. Not only is demand so high that all Celestiqs have already been sold out for the coming 18 months, but customers also have the unique opportunity to personalize their purchase to Rolls-Royce and Bentley standards.

Clientele can ask for any customization they desire and Cadillac will conform. The initial Celestiq examples are expected to be given to the corresponding owners in late spring of the year 2024.

Each automobile is fitted with an 11-kWh battery and a set of two electric motors, granting it 600 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of rotation. GM guesses that it will reach 0-60 mph in roughly 3.8 seconds. Cadillac desires to demonstrate, one more time, that it can assemble an exclusive masterpiece that recaptures the company’s inheritance as the Standard of the Globe.
