GM Cadillac ELR Extended-Range Plug-In Hybrid to Roll Out in 2014

GM’s most anticipated Cadillac ELR extended-range plug-in hybrid car will roll out in the year 2014. The Cadillac ELR is being expected to come as a future plug-in hybrid sports car.

When ELR was first introduced at the 2009 North American Auto Show, it was dubbed the Converj. The car features a 120 kilowatt electric motor and a four-cylinder engine-generator. The two-door, front-wheel drive vehicle recharges in only three hours using a 240-volt outlet, and offers 40 miles (64km) and a top speed of 100 mph (160 km/h).

The ELR will use GM Delta II platform, which is shared by Chevrolet Volt. It will about the same size as the Volt and will cost less than the $57,400 Tesla Motor S.

ELR will drive into the European and Chinese market after its debut in North America.  The exact price is not yet known.

The Converj concept design has already won many awards, including that for the best concept design and was selected by Green Car Journal as one the five finalists to the 2012 Green Car Vision Award.
