General Motors released some more photos of the Cadillac Celestiq show car, and as you can see, we’re still only getting the bare minimum here.

The Celestiq, expected to be Cadillac’s next all-electric luxury vehicle, “represents the purest expression of Cadillac design, technology and performance,” the automaker says. And here’s a photo of a door hinge to prove it!

GM first showed the Celestiq to a handful of reporters at its EV Day event in early 2020, but it hasn’t released images of the full vehicle yet. The ultra-luxury sedan is intended to complement the Cadillac Lyriq, which entered production earlier this year.

Both vehicles will be built on GM’s Ultium electric vehicle platform, which powers a wide variety of vehicle types and sizes, including the GMC Hummer EV, Chevy Silverado EV and BrightDrop delivery vehicles.

It’s been over a year since the last teaser images of the Celestiq were released, including the all-glass roof with four-quadrant modularity – meaning each vehicle occupant can determine their own level of transparency.

In the intervening months, we also received new information about the Celestiq’s driver assistance features. The EV, expected to debut in 2023, will be the first to feature GM’s new Ultra Cruise Advanced Driver Assistance System, which the automaker says will cover “95 percent” of driving scenarios. The system is also the first to use Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon Ride Platform, which will have processing power equivalent to “several hundred” personal computers.

Interestingly enough, GM continues to refer to the Celestiq as a “show car,” meaning it’s simply a custom job intended for public display and not sale. While that doesn’t mean there will be major differences once the production version is revealed, it’s still interesting that GM sees fit to make that distinction.
