GM Takes Hybrid Technology Upscale

General Motors introduced the Cadillac ELR concept at the Detroit Auto Show. This new electric vehicle has the same battery and gasoline generator as the Chevrolet Volt. Who knew you could save the environment and drive in style at the same time? On top of all that, you’ll also have something special with the ELR — GM says it’ll be produced in limited quantities to make it unique for owners.

Features of the Cadillac ELR

Power

This new hybrid coupe has a 435 lb. battery that has about a 35-mile solo charge. The 1.4-liter gasoline generator runs on premium fuel. The automaker boasts instant torque and smooth acceleration from the electric charge.

Style

The 20-inch wheels and sculpted lines of the Cadillac ELR set it apart as a luxury vehicle. It features LED lights and that signature Cadillac grille. On the inside, stitched leather accents, wood panels, and carbon fiber give it a touch of class. Cadillac CUE technology integrates your smartphone into this high-end driving experience.

The ELR is scheduled to go on sale in early 2014 in North America and to be exported to China and Europe. What do you think of this blend of luxury and efficiency? Let us know below.
