GM’s Cadillac division is developing a plug-in hybrid using the same range-extender technology as the Chevrolet Volt, according to media reports in Detroit.
Sources told Reuters that the new Cadillac would be based on the SRX crossover and feature plenty of General Motors’ Voltec technology as used in the Chevrolet Volt and Opel Ampera.
The new Cadillac would also draw from an abandoned project to launch a rechargeable crossover vehicle that GM had considered in 2008 and 2009 under the Buick and since-scrapped Saturn brands, according to one of the sources
The project would mark the first luxury electric car from the top U.S. automaker after it dropped a plan to build the Converj concept car, a Cadillac variant of the Volt.
For the moment there are no more information’s about Cadillac’s plug-in hybrid, but most probably, the SRX plug-in will likely not be as showy as that concept.
