Cadillac has recently revealed new details on the new 2014 ELR, confirming the model for production, which should start next year.
According to the North American based automaker, the new Cadillac ELR, which will be wearing the 2014 model year in its name, will be produced at the company’s Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant next year, along with other models such as the Opel / Vauxhall Ampera or the Chevrolet / Holden Volt. The Cadillac ELR will be the first two-door Caddy to be assembled at this facility since the 1999 Eldorado.
“The ELR will be in a class by itself, further proof of our commitment to electric vehicles and advanced technology. People will instantly recognize it as a Cadillac by its distinctive, signature look and true-to-concept exterior design”, says the General Motors North America president, Mark Reuss.
The 2014 Cadillac ELR will also adopt some styling from the Converj Concept and it will get electric propulsion from the lithium-ion battery pack, the electric drive motor and the four-cylinder engine generator. The new ELR will run on electricity but the petrol engine will act as a generator and recharge the batteries when they are low. Additional details on the 2014 Cadillac ELR are limited for the moment.
