The Volt-based Cadillac ELR was originally revealed as the Converj Concept in 2009 and was already expected to be in dealerships, but GM’s financial woes caused it to be shelved. In August 2011, GM announced that the ELR was back on the table and the plug-in would be produced but little has been heard about it until now.
The same OnStar app that revealed the Chevy ‘SS Performance’ model also has the ELR listed under Cadillac as a 2014 model. Hardly definitive proof that the vehicle will make its production debut next year, but it’s the closest hint we have.
Will an upmarket version of the Volt fare better among consumers than its bow tie bearing predecessor? A boost in power and range could surely help its cause.
