For a vehicle to move from a concept car that we admire at auto shows across the world to a production model that you can find at dealerships like ours here at Lindsay Cadillac of Alexandria, is a long and thought out process. The CADILLAC ELR it’s taken some time, but as we know, when a new CADILLAC model arrives at our showroom, it’s always worth the wait.
The new vehicle made its debut as a concept in 2009 under the CADILLAC Converj Concept. After showing it off to the world, the luxury plug-in hybrid coupe got the go ahead to hit production in 2011, and now we’ve finally seen some shots of this new CADILLAC electric car testing as it prepares for a 2013 arrival.
The new CADILLAC ELR is based on the Converj Concept sporting bold designs angles with sharp body lines and an aerodynamic structure that really shows off the vehicle’s purpose: to give drivers in the greater Alexandria, Arlington and Fairfax areas an electric vehicle that’s every bit as intrepid as it is efficient. The CADILLAC ELR is equipped with a T-shaped lithium-ion battery, a four-cylinder engine generation, and an electric drive unit.
Built using the same platform as the Volt plug-in, the CADILLAC ELR takes that technology and evolves it even further, giving it all the luxury amenities we expect out of new CADILLAC vehicles like the 2012 CADILLAC SRX and many more available at Lindsay Cadillac of Alexandria. While other details of the CADILLAC ELR have yet to be released, there is word that many features, including 20-inch rims and rear-wheel drive could be on the new CADILLAC EV.
