Show car is for a preview of the upcoming production car. As opposed to a "concept" which automakers typically use to preview certain elements or design direction of a car or brand that may or may not be produced.
The Celestiq is Cadillac's first major attempt to capture part of the high-end car market currently dominated by the likes of Rolls-Royce and Bentley. The company aims to offer exclusively electric vehicles by the end of this decade.
The human-centric technology at the heart of the Celestiq brings the vehicle's expressive artistry to life. Celestiq is scheduled to offer Ultra-Cruise, the next evolution of Cadillac hands-free driver assistance technology, a Smart Glass roof and five advanced high-definition LED displays, including an advanced 55-inch LED display, housed in one building.
The system is also the first to use the new Qualcomm Snapdragon Ride Platform, which will have processing power equivalent to "several hundred" personal computers.
GM has not released any technical details about the Celestiq such as range, performance or other metrics.
