GM recently started production affordable Cadillac Lyric, the brand’s first all-electric vehicle and is now ready to talk about what’s next. This, of course, is completely new and ultra-luxurious Cadillac Celestiq EV.

While we have already heard rumors that Cadillac’s second all-electric vehicle will be hand-made, the company revealed many exciting details this week. Obviously, the Celestiq will be an extremely luxurious car with an extremely small volume and probably very expensive.

Each Cadillac Celestiq will be handcrafted in Michigan, will use more 3D printed parts than any GM production car, and GM will even offer custom models for buyers.

According to GMAuthority, the carmaker has announced a $ 81 million investment in a facility in Michigan that will accelerate the plant to create the Celestiq and possibly other high-end Cadillac electric vehicles. Here’s what GM had to say:

“Today, General Motors announced that it will invest more than $ 81 million at the Global Technical Center in Warren, Michigan, to prepare the campus for the construction of the Cadillac CELESTIQ. The investment will be used to purchase and install related CELESTIQ manual construction equipment, and work to renovate the campus has already begun.

Although we are not entirely sure what “handmade” means, as it could be leather seats and other minor items, it can be said that this will be a luxury vehicle. Cadillac describes the model as a car that “will redefine ultra-luxury with the spirit of futurism and avant-garde.”

GM went on to say that each vehicle will be handcrafted by an amazing team of artisans on the historic campus of the Technical Center. Team members will use over 100 custom 3D printed components, including structural and cosmetic parts made of polymer and 3D printed metal parts. I don’t know about you, but it all sounds pretty exciting.

We don’t know too much about Cadillac Celestiq’s specifications, how much the company will produce or how much it will cost. However, don’t expect too much and be prepared to empty your pockets to get one.

GM will release more teasers next month before its release in July.
