2014 Cadillac ELR “Spy Photo” Released

Cadillac had just released a staged spy photo of its new gasoline range-extended electric car, which will debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week.

Taken while undergoing testing in Southern California, the car will hit production branded as the ELR and make use of technology developed for the Chevrolet Volt. Like in the Volt, power will come from an electric motor and battery pack, with a gasoline engine used to charge the batteries.

“Cadillac customers are going to enjoy the unique features ELR will bring to the market,” said Cadillac ELR chief engineer Chris Thomason. “We’re going to change the way people think about luxury and electrification.”

    Looks good, but the devil will be in the details. What’s the electric range, charging time, HP & torque figures, oh and yeah, price. Very promising though but lets see the details

  • GM has an uncanny ability to shoot themselves in the foot. The Camaro, Volt, and ELR are each great cars, in my opinion…but the problem is that each of them were teased, revealed, promised, and totally explained roughly 2-3 years before they went to market. This is somewhat like showing your poker hand before bets are placed. Sure its a good hand, but it would have been better had they waited till JUST before orders were being taken.
