The Cadillac Celestiq concept has a massive 55-inch screen on the dashboard

Cadillac has revealed its Celestiq show car – a unique concept designed to showcase what future Caddie models will look like.

Designers claim to have drawn upon over 120 years of Cadillac history when creating the Celestiq, as well as from classic American architecture.

Of course, it’s based on a dedicated EV platform, which is important as the Celestiq is actually set to enter production.

We can’t guarantee it’ll look like this, but we certainly hope it does.

Obviously, it’s a sedan and not an SUV like so many new cars are.

This, in the words of chief engineer Tony Roma, is “because the [sedan] configuration offers the very best luxury experience”.

Given this, the company’s V16-powered pre-war sedans and the 1957 Eldorado provide the greatest inspiration.

“Those vehicles represented the pinnacle of luxury in their respective eras, and helped make Cadillac the standard of the world,” Roma says.

So what does Cadillac’s new world standard-setting sedan offer then?

The answer is screens. Big screens.

Stretching across the entire dashboard, there’s a massive 55-inch touchscreen display.

This displays everything from vehicle information to navigation.

Even the rear-view mirrors are digital and displayed on two smaller screens on the doors that connect with the one across the dash.

That reminds us a bit of the Mercedes-Benz EQXX.

For the backseat, there are two more massive displays both on the back of the front seats.

There’s another small touchpad between the rear seats to adjust the seats as well.

The Celestiq also has a crazy sunroof concept.

A self-dimming sunroof isn’t exactly new, but this one can dim variably in four individual zones so each passenger gets the view or comfort they’re after.

Of course, the eventual version of the Celestiq that makes it to production will feature Cadillac’s ‘Ultra Cruise’ system as well.

This allows for hands-free driving on US roads that the company has mapped out.

What the production version of the Cadillac Celestiq will look like, and when it will be released, remains a mystery for now.

However, the company plans to announce it “later this year”.

Stay tuned, because if the concept’s anything to go by, it will be good.
