Cadillac has released a teaser image that previews the 2014 ELR, extended-range electric luxury coupe based on the Converj concept expected to debut at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show.


According to the official statements, the new ELR luxury coupe will be the production version of the Converj show car presented at the Detroit Show in 2009, and will feature a “true-to-concept exterior design”.

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.
