General Motors on Wednesday is investing more than $81 million to build the Cadillac Celestiq, the luxury EV, at the company’s Global Technical Center in Detroit. The funds will be used to purchase and install equipment and build a vehicle for commercial sales at its tech campus.
“As Cadillac’s future flagship sedan, Celestiq signifies a new, resurgent era for the brand. Each one will be hand-built by an amazing team of craftspeople on our historic Technical Center campus, and today’s investment announcement emphasizes our commitment to delivering a world-class Cadillac with nothing but the best in craftsmanship, design, engineering, and technology,” said Mark Reuss, GM’s president, in a statement.
The multinational automotive is scheduled to officially unveil the car next month, and only hundreds are expected to be produced each year which would cost $200,000 or more per car. The automaker also said it would include more than 100 3D printed parts.
The Celestiq is slated to go on sale in 2025 with 30 new models. Additional images will be revealed in late July as the renovations to the Global Technical Center campus have already begun.
