GM reveals 2014 Cadillac ELR teaser prior to 2013 Detroit Auto Show
General Motors will reveal the all new 2014 Cadillac ELR at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show next week. Prior to that, they have revealed a teaser of the new car.
2014 Cadillac ELR is based on the Converj concept and will see the same extended range electric drive system as in the Chevrolet Volt. It will be powered by an electric propulsion system consisting of T shaped lithium ion batteries, an all electric drive unit along with four cylinder engine generator. The vehicle is powered by the lithium ion battery with the four cylinder engine, stepping up performance once battery power is depleted.
Production and sales of the upcoming ELR coupe will commence from fall of 2013 at the General Motors’ Detroit Hamtramck Assembly Plant. The addition of the ELR to the plant from where the company produces Chevrolet Volt, Opel Ampera, and Holden Volt will see additional investment of $35 million bringing the total product investment to the plant to $561 million since December 2009.
