General Motors brand Cadillac unveiled its CELESTIQ show car, an a new battery electric car is the company’s “vision of innovation and purpose that previews the brand’s future handcrafted and all-electric flagship sedan.”

The CELESTIQ is essentially Cadillac’s introduction to an all-electric future, which will be the next phase of the automaker’s rich 120-year history.

“The CELESTIQ show car is the purest expression of Cadillac,” Magalie Debellis, the Manager of Cadillac’s Advanced Design, said. “It brings to life the most integrated expressions of design and innovation in the brand’s history, coalescing in a defining statement of a true Cadillac flagship.”

GM has been teasing Cadillac’s newest EV design for a few months, with plans to build the Celestiq at the company’s $81 million Detroit-based Global Technical Center.

The Celestiq features a top-class, luxury interior that highlights a rumored purchase price of near $300,000. New images of that interior were released today, along with the new exterior shots posted above.

The Celestiq will feature the Ultium architecture, and by no surprise. GM has funneled billions into the development of the Ultium battery, which will hopefully spearhead the company’s lofty goals to overtake Tesla as the market leader in electric vehicles.

This show car will not be the final Celestiq design that makes it into production. However, Cadillac did state in its press release of the show car that “these technologies and more will make CELESTIQ the most advanced vehicle ever from Cadillac.”

GM is not yet accepting pre-orders and has no projections for the availability of the production version of the car. It said these details will be announced at a later date.
