Description: It was back in 2009 when Cadillac unveiled the Converj Concept, a stylish two-door coupe based on the same architecture and plug-in hybrid technology as the Chevy Volt. Fast forward to this year'...

Have to admit, would rather see this on the streets of Beverly Hills than a Prius. Wouldn't look as sad next to a Rolls.

Obama Administration: making cars suck since 2008
Aj White Jan 16, 2013
@Carlos U have no style. Plain & simple.
Carlos Dorantes Jan 16, 2013
Fugly! Plain & simple.
Zachary Maurer Jan 15, 2013
Ik D.C does something with taxes and exemptions when you own a hybrid, so everyone has one there, and plus it depends what type of person you are
Drew Humphrey Jan 15, 2013
@Stephen I don't know what you mean.
Aaron Crisp Jan 15, 2013
54.5 MPG?! Geez. Need to just start importing small diesels from Europe.
Stephen Cobbs Jan 15, 2013
@Drew. The same reason why a big family would buy a SUV for 30k instead of a 2 door coupe for 30k.
Dylan Bruder Jan 15, 2013
@drew you get 7500 back in some states not too bad and those cars have completely different purposes plus since Obama has made the 54.5 cafe mpg in 2025 you gotta start bringing those numbers up big time this car will help boost that number nicely
Blaise Harned Jan 15, 2013
Couldn't agree more drew!
Darryle Moody Jan 15, 2013
That is a fancy Volt. Not bad a looking ride.
Taylor Little Jan 15, 2013
And both those are less likely to catch fire haha.
Drew Humphrey Jan 15, 2013
Why, in the interest of fuel economy, would you pay several thousand dollars more for a Cadillac-branded Chevrolet Volt? You could just get a nice Ford Fusion or Mercedes-Benz C-Class and probably never overtake the fuel savings after you purchase an expensive hybrid.
Tracy Keiser Dron Jan 16, 2013
That looks very pod...
Parker Leach Jan 15, 2013
Definitely the sexiest hybrid I've ever seen
Jacob Greenleaf Jan 15, 2013
Obviously everyone has their own opinions but I think everyone can agree that Cadillac is finally moving from hearses to gorgeous cars.
Austin Bride Jan 15, 2013
Rebadged volt
Maria Eugenia Rojas Jan 15, 2013
Nice i like
John Patten Jan 15, 2013
Tbh, I don't like anything GM, but this is not bad.
Jacob Burford Jan 15, 2013
Meh! Typical Cadillac design!
Cindy Ngo Jan 15, 2013
That car is not cool
Shannon Sims Jan 15, 2013
1st one I've ever wanted ever.
Craig Lafey Jan 15, 2013
I want it
Carter Sullivan Jan 15, 2013
@David, I didn't agree with anything you said...until the last sentence
Jordan Smith Jan 15, 2013
David prefers the Prius because of it's styling?!
Ryan Spencer Jan 15, 2013
Exception: Fisker Karma. When it's not on fire.
Ryan Spencer Jan 15, 2013
Finally! A hybrid that looks good! I thought this day would never come!
David Lee Jan 15, 2013
@Ian the point of the car is efficiency. I would rather have the Prius because I prefer the styling. Although, I would prefer a B Class electric over the Prius. In the end though, I want an Audi RS7 Sportback.
Corey Alan Kelley Jan 15, 2013
Seeing the comments about what happens to the batteries I talked with a surveyor in the oilfield once and he was telling me what we'll see is battery acid getting into water supplies Of course maybe he's biased being oilfield but it makes you wonder
Corey Alan Kelley Jan 15, 2013
Now just cram a V10 somewhere between the front seat and the trunk And then take my money
Aaron Crisp Jan 15, 2013
Put in a sporty 4 banger or V6 and it'll actually sell. Hybrids ugh.
Borphan Limthong Jan 15, 2013

Ian Ragsdale Jan 15, 2013
Why would you want a Prius with it's puny 105 lb ft of torque, when you can have this with nearly 300? I cannot even comprehend that sort of logic.
Dylan Bruder Jan 15, 2013
Good looking car
Jimmy Case Jan 15, 2013
@Jesse but you spent money on a Mitsubishi? Haha
David Lee Jan 15, 2013
Give me all the negative feedback you want, but I'd rather have a Toyota Prius Plug In or a Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric
Jordan Smith Jan 15, 2013
Which is why electric is not the future at the moment. Cleaner production and cleaner ways to recycle should be first. Then cleaner engines.
Jordan Nishida Jan 15, 2013
Looks great.
Maaz Khan Jan 15, 2013
Then on top of that recycling plants pollute aswell
Stephen D Jan 15, 2013
Never mind where the batteries go when they are old. The pollution from manufacturing them alone offsets eco benifit. Mining for the materials needed is a dirty process.
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 15, 2013
Except the cts-v, cause that's a nice car
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 15, 2013
I just don't get paying more for a rebadged chevy.
Sam Reinsel Jan 15, 2013
No, there are ways of recycling the materials.
Tino Domingue Jan 15, 2013
So I just thought I put this out there... But what happens to the batteries in all these new hybrids/EV's when they're no longer any good... Will we find them where most batteries end up... In a landfill?
John Serely Jan 15, 2013
Looks great. I absolutely love Caddy's new design language
Joe Talerico Jan 15, 2013
Beautiful car (and that's coming from someone who's never liked Caddys). I just don't think a higher end hybrid is going to sell in any significant numbers.
Carlton Salmon Jan 15, 2013
Great looking car, hybrid or not.
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 15, 2013
Finally!!!!!! The caddy has come back to Motown!!!
Description: All told, this combo produces 207 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Cadillac claims the ELR can travel up to 35 miles on electric power alone. Charging the battery takes about 4.5 hours using a 240V...

Markpaul Chohan Jan 16, 2013
Shouldn't it be like 350 miles?
Bill Estep Jr Jan 16, 2013
Only 35 miles?
Jeff Link Jan 15, 2013
4.5 hours of juice to go 35 miles... That sounds waaaaay cheaper then gas..... Or not
David Lee Jan 15, 2013
Ronald Reagan on Demand? Cool... -_- I <3 typos.
Darryn Bolden Jan 15, 2013
Regan smash!
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 15, 2013
Aw come with this plug in bullshit!
Description: With its fastback design, signature egg crate grille and sharply angled headlights and taillamps, the ELR has an aggressive stance that's further augmented by LED-only exterior lighting (includin...

I would trade my four-door volt in for this Cadillac two-door coupe
Jon Ashley Jan 16, 2013
Almost a hatchback look. This car is SHORT. Still looks pretty cool
Alex Bouckley Jan 15, 2013
I'm not going to buy this unless its RWD. This will be a flop like the Volt it's based on...
Tyler Thompson Jan 15, 2013
I also agree! RWD would be better!
Chris Gaines Jan 15, 2013
agreed Tyler, at least make it rwd!
Cindy Ngo Jan 15, 2013
A Coupe?
Matt Piccolo Jan 15, 2013
Not feeling the back, rest of the car looks great though
John Serely Jan 15, 2013
I agree drew. Hopefully the ATS coupe or ATS-V will take care of that
Drew Humphrey Jan 15, 2013
Looks good, but I wish this had a RWD/AWD turbocharged four-cylinder engine instead. Could be pretty quick.
Description: Additional features will include several advanced safety systems such as forward collision and lane departure warning, blind spot alert and full-speed range adaptive cruise control. There's even ...

The cup holder won't effect the range of the vehicle. It's a Cadillac and they build luxury. Automatic things that are useful or not is part of the luxury motif.
Bill Estep Jr Jan 16, 2013
Pushing the cup holders is so hard :p
Andy Graham Jan 15, 2013
Agreed Johnny!
Johnny Matias Jan 15, 2013
So they make this amazing brand new super fuel efficient car and then make the horribly opposite statement of wasting power on some freaking cup holders!! God this company needs to look into what they're statement is with these cars.
Jonathan Ippolito Jan 15, 2013
I'm now just waiting for the final official pricing to decide if I'm going to buy a new ELR . Great job goes to Cadillac for the ELR .
David Lee Jan 15, 2013
@Jordan the cover on the cup holder electrically slides away.
Jordan Smith Jan 15, 2013
Power assisted cup holder?
Mark Fei Ling Jan 16, 2013
@Miranda I think that's how they attracting female buyers....
Johnny Matias Jan 15, 2013
I for some reason love brown on cars. Audi, BMW and Mercedes pull it off very well, and that tuned (forgot the company) brown Lamborghini Aventador was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. I really do like the leather on those seats too.
Luis Daniel Angilello Jan 15, 2013
Black leather seats, and piano black accent would look better IMO
Jacob Burford Jan 15, 2013
Cadillac is putting out some nice interiors right now!
Drake Nailon Jan 15, 2013
Actually beige sucks except in the showroom. This color will mellow with time and get lighter in the wear areas, taking on a rich patina. Beige just gets dirty.
Miranda Nearlydriftingondreams Pavelle Jan 15, 2013
Lol the shifter XD
Dylan Bruder Jan 15, 2013
Looks comfy
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 15, 2013
Beige is a better color interior
Tim Preisinger Jan 15, 2013
I actually like the color.... For some reason
Matt Piccolo Jan 15, 2013
It's okay
Kyle Rawn Jan 15, 2013
Woulda opted for a tan.
Max Dell Jan 15, 2013
Poop brown leather, real classy.....
Drake Nailon Jan 15, 2013
I bet it has as good or better legroom as the Volt. Same platform remember?
Mike Conrad Jan 15, 2013
Probably no leg room with the front seats back. Just like the ATS.
Author Norman R. Colson Jan 15, 2013
Like a boss sitting in a backseat
Mark Fei Ling Jan 16, 2013
All the Cadillacs in Asian market have clear (bit smoked) tail light, and it's kind cool compare with USDM
Johnny Matias Jan 15, 2013
I don't particularly like this light. It looks too red in the back. It's weird or put of color proportions or something.
