Cadillac’s Ultra-Luxury CELESTIQ, the Honda Prologue EV, & BMW M2 Reveal
Cadillac’s electric lineup is getting an all-new flagship.
The 2024 Cadillac CELESTIQ is an ultra-luxury electric sedan, commanding an MSRP “north of three-hundred-thousand dollars.” While each one will be handcrafted and tailored to the customer’s desires, it will use GM’s Ultium EV platform. Production starts in December 2023.
And GM’s Ultium platform is also lending a helping hand to Honda….
…serving as the foundation for the 2024 Honda Prologue, the brand’s first all-electric SUV.
Designed by Honda’s Los Angeles team, the Prologue will feature a modern shape: smooth lines and few obstructions. Expect this model to roll out in 2024.
In internal combustion news, BMW unveils the latest M2 sports coupe.
2023 marks the second-generation of the M2, packing a 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight-six with 460 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. All sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. The new M2 will thrash onto the scene next April.
And Audi’s R8 sports coupe just may be entering its twilight year.
The 2023 Audi R8 GT RWD is a limited edition model, with just 333 units world wide. It could be the last gasp for the internal combustion R8. If so, it’s going out as the most powerful rear-wheel drive car ever made by Audi, producing 602 horsepower.
