Cadillac revealed the interior of the flagship electric carSeptember 9, 2020
The American manufacturer allegedly revealed the interior of the Cadillac Celestiq EV. If so, the electric sedan has a very alluring design in the style of the new Cadillac Lyriq. If the actual interior looks even half as good as this sketch, wealthy premium car buyers will be thrilled.
To get an idea of the mindset of the GM design team, it’s best to start with Generalmotorsdesign on Instagram. There, the company regularly uploads sketches of things like, say, alternative designs for the new GM Defense ISV army truck or the unnamed futuristic Cadillac electric supercar.
Case in point: A concept sketch posted on social media late last month shows what the interior of the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq EV might be like if things had gone differently, and it makes you wonder if Cadillac’s upcoming flagship, Celestiq EV, gets a luxury interior. in high-tech style.
The resemblance to the actual interior of the Lyriq is striking: the long, multi-level digital display that doubles as both the dashboard and infotainment screen, although here more aggressively wrapped around the driver, plays on the “fighter cockpit” look and resembles a Corvette C8. The upper door trim, where the Lyriq power seat adjustment switches will be located, has the same intricate metallic pattern.
And like the entire exterior of the Cadillac Lyriq, this concept version of the interior features an attractive repeating pinstripe pattern on the dash, center console and glove compartment door. On the Lyriq, this pattern is one of the most distinctive features of the faux radiator grille.
All these similarities lead to the idea that this concept exemplifies a new design language for the electric era of Cadillac, in which case the sketch may not necessarily reflect the Lyriq cab, but, for example, the Celestiq. Cadillac has yet to unveil this electric car, which is set to be an exclusive, handcrafted luxury flagship sedan that demonstrates what Cadillac is capable of in an increasingly important segment of GM’s future.
