Last month, GM had released a first teaser image of the 2014 Cadillac ELR, a shadowy side-profile shot that confirmed its essential shape.
The Cadillac ELR will make its official public debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show next week.
The ELR will advance the design theme of the Converj while featuring an electric propulsion system made up of a T-shaped lithium-ion battery, an electric drive unit, and a four-cylinder engine-generator. It will use electricity as its primary power source to drive the car without using gasoline or producing tailpipe emissions. When the battery’s energy is low, the ELR seamlessly switches to a gasoline-powered electric generator to allow hundreds of additional driving miles. The lithium-ion battery will be built at GM’s Brownstown Battery Assembly plant in Brownstown, Mich.
