Here we have the first spy shots of the upcoming 2014 Cadillac ELR. The Cadillac ELR coupe is expected to use the same or a similar VOLTEC powertrain as found in the Chevrolet Volt / Vauxhall Ampera. That means a range of up to 40 miles on electric power, before a 1.4-litre petrol engine kicks in to recharge the battery. We’ll see soon are the wheels powered also by the same 150bhp electric motor or is Cadillac using something more powerful.
The Cadillac ELR is a luxurious 2+2 coupe, based on the Converj concept, that was shown back in 2009 at the Detroit Auto Show. It looks like the production version is almost identical to the concept, which is a good thing. We like it!
