Cadillac has revealed the car it hopes will reclaim the "Standard of the World" title for the brand.

The Celesitq is a fully electric ultra luxury model that will be largely hand-built by the automaker starting next year.

The show car that has been unveiled previews the production Celestiq's styling and four-door liftback configuration, which is similar to the Mercedes-Benz EQS that it will compete against.

Its large faux grille is embedded with lighting elements that illuminated in an animated sequence and the lights flanking its tailgate are a tip of the hat to the brand's iconic tail fins.

Cadillac said the idea for the car was partly inspired by the 1957 Eldorado Brougham, of which just 400 were built.

Performance specifications, including its power and driving range between charges, have not been released, but Cadillac previously said it will be equipped with the hands-free Ultra Cruise driving system, all-wheel-drive and a four-wheel-steering system that should allow it to make turns as tightly as a compact car can.
