General Motors (GM) will be selling its Cadillac Celestiq EV luxury car for $340,000, challenging Rolls-Royce, which sells its Ghost sedan at about the same price, $180,000 cheaper than the Rolls-Royce Specter coupe while Bentley will sell its EV model at 250,000 euros, roughly $274,000 at today's rates, Jonathan Ramset reported for Autoblog.

GM has said it plans to assemble in the neighborhood of two cars per day, but maybe not every day — annual production will start at about 400 or 500. The automaker said that 18 months of production is already accounted for, meaning at least 600 to 750 units are in the books based on outdated figures.
The Spectre comes with a 102-kWh battery good for an estimated 260-mile EPA range, the coupe's two motors producing a combined 584 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque.
Sent to all four wheels, that output returns a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds.
The Celestiq hides a 111-kWh battery good for an estimated 300 miles of EPA range, its two motors making a combined 600 hp and 640 lb-ft. With standard all-wheel drive, the Celestiq is said to hit 60 mph in about 3.8 seconds.
The Caddy will also bring all-wheel steering and GM's first installation of Ultra Cruise. The spec sheet makes an obvious win for the American entry.
