2014 Cadillac ELR Revealed [video]

Cadillac has unveiled the 2014 ELR today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The ELR is based on the Converj concept that Cadillac showed three years ago at the same show.

The ELR features a low roofline, aggressive forward-leaning profile, big 20-inch wheels and LED lighting units at the front and rear.

Inside, the ELR has a classic 2+2 layout and is driver focused with plenty of fine leather and high tech gadgets everywhere. The ELR even has a power-assisted cup holder cover and the Cadillac CUE with Navigation is standard and accessible through a large, eight-inch, full-color capacitive-touch screen in the center of the instrument panel.

The ELR uses the same Voltec electric drive system found in the Chevrolet Volt/Vauxhall Ampera. Total system output is 207 horsepower and when using only the energy stored in the battery has a range of about 35 miles. The 1.4-litre petrol engine works as a range-extender raising the total range to over 300 miles. Top speed is 100mph and 0-60mph time has not been announced yet.

Pricing, availability and final performance figures will be announced closer to market launch.
