The Cadillac Escala concept car produced its debut on Aug 18 th , 2016, at the Pebble Seaside Concours d’Elegance, following a number of private previews. It’s any, large and elegant 4 doors sedan, but the GM Authority rendering team wondered just how it would look as a sports coupe, so they made it.
When the Cadillac Escala had been revealed, then-Cadillac President, Johan de Nysschen, described this as “a potential conjunction with our existing product plan”. However , its primary objective was to introduce a brand new design language for GM’s luxury brand “that will start appearing on production versions soon”.
This has currently started to happen. Certain design cues found on the Cadillac Escala also appear on the production Cadillac CT5 luxury four door, including the front end and part various other lines. There are fine detail differences, but the family similarity between the two vehicles is apparent.
Moreover, although the upcoming all-electric Cadillac Celestiq , due to be revealed come early july and released properly ahead of schedule in 2023, has up to now appeared only in teaser pictures , GENERAL MOTORS Authority offers reason to believe that it will appear similar to the Escala concept in a number of ways. The rendering we released in Feb is expected to be near to the mark, at the very least.
From what we should know, there are currently simply no plans to put a Celestiq Coupe into production, in case such a vehicle were created, then it might look just like our Escala Coupe making. There might also be a place for this in the market – it would endure in relation to the Celestiq four door in the same way that the Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe does to the Rolls-Royce Ghost sedan, which is by mechanical means similar and built on a single platform.
Sedan and sports coupe versions of the Cadillac Celestiq would be much more affordable (and quieter) than their Rolls-Royce equivalents. The Celestiq is usually expected to be priced at around one-hundred dollar, 000 – a large sum, but not also close to the cost of any automobile currently built by the BMW-owned British brand.
The Celestiq is among the upcoming electric vehicles expected to make-up half of Cadillac’s portfolio by 2025, otherwise sooner. The first will be the Cadillac Lyriq crossover, that is due to launch in the 1st quarter of 2022, nine weeks ahead from the original schedule. Like the Celestiq and the GMC Hummer EV pickup truck, it will function Ultium batteries plus Ultium drive technologies.
