Cadillac is looking into the past as it puts the finishing touches on its car of the future.

The brand is scheduled to release a new flagship electric sedan called the Celestiq next year.

The hand-built Celestiq will be positioned as an ultra-luxury showcase for its latest tech at a price expected to be in the $200,000 range and is intended to live up to Cadillac’s old “Standard of the World” slogan.

A new teaser image showing a door hinge shows that the words have even been imprinted into the bolts used to secure it.

The Celestiq brings back a Cadillac logo from the 1930s.

The goddess ornament was on the 1941 Cadillac.

Full technical details have not been released, but the Celestiq will use a version of the Ultium electric vehicle platform that debuts this year with the Cadillac Lyriq SUV and will itself be fully revealed sometime this summer.

One thing it won’t have is a colorful version of the Cadillac crest. Its electric cars will instead get a grayscale version that is rolling out as they are introduced and will also be illuminated in some applications.
