Cadillac to Get Production Plug-in Hybrid Model

By Colin Bird  on August 18, 2011

Cadillac confirmed that it’s working on a production plug-in hybrid that will be called the ELR when it eventually goes on sale.

The Cadillac ELR will be a luxury coupe that looks similar to the Cadillac Converj Concept (shown above) that we first saw at the 2009 Detroit auto show. It will borrow technology that currently powers the Chevrolet Volt — meaning there will be a four-cylinder engine and electric drive unit.

More details about performance, electric range, pricing and timing for the new model will be announced later.

Stay tuned for more news from Cadillac as the brand plans to unveil another, new concept later today.
