    How will this car help Cadillac's image? Don't you think a flagship is more important right now? C'mon, GM.

    I hope the ELR looks like the show car and offers a performance mode with total disregard to range

    I can't wait to see this once it is revealed.

    "Caught during hot weather testing in Death Valley...." Something that Nissan apparently forgot to do with the Leaf.

    As much as people constantly bemoan the lack of a true flagship, they don't materialize without time, investment and R&D.

    There never was an ELR vs. a flagship priority dilemma: the Converj was production intent.

    What does the ELR do for Cadillac? It establishes the brand as a player in the luxury electrified vehicle segment. The ELR brings with it a lot of street cred and a target demographic.

    You still have to have a flagship in the luxury market that's very well executed. I don't hate the ELR, but I don't see it as a priority.

    The electric luxury market isn't very big, and it doesn't really improve Cadillac's image in the luxury market.

    That's just my opinion.

    Depending on how they price it, it may help fund that flag ship.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac ELR Spy Video

    I'm guessing the car will offer the 2.0 T with Voltec?.. It kind of sounds reasonable for me.. I don't see anything bigger for the car being on that platform, but thinking about hybrid sport cars the Acura NSX sounds pretty interesting.. wonder if Cadillac could do the same for its flagship model in some way.. I understand V12 or V16 whatever you guys think... but I just thinking it would nice to see GM implement the Voltec architecture in high performance in some manner... Just makes you think, not that it will happen..

    doubtful - GM loses money on each Volt don't they? I mean we're all paying a chunk on each one sold? Flagship would have been the better investment - could have killed two birds... offered a model variant with the ELR drivetrain and call it a day...

    Considering Cadillac is working on a flagship right now too, yes, I'm confident the ELR will do a lot to help Cadillac's image.

    No where else on the luxury market can you find a bold and exotic looking luxury coupe with the green capabilities and sensible price of the ELR. It's the first time in a while that Cadillac might actual be first to market with a product in this fashion. I would not be surprised to see others following in Cadillac's footsteps soon.

    besides timing and other real reasons;
    different strokes and all that...

    ...I am literally drooling over the thought of the ELR
    &
    tho I couldn't afford a flagship either, seeing one on the road would merely be 'nice'
