Typical, a video about a GM car that starts with a Mercedes Ad!
Now movie stars will be able to go back to driving flash cars to public events...
This really should be a no brainer.

Then at what stage? A "Flagship" is certainly nice, but an advanced car like the ELR is going to garner far more attention.
Hilarious. Cadillac went from near-last with the 2004-2009 version, to second best seller in the segment with the lastest SRX and you call it an "accident".Along with the flagship, Cadillac really needs a RWD CUV to replace that accident called the SRX.

True. But what about Cadillac's image in the luxury market around that time? I remember you could $8,000 off those things. They were simply cheap and unsophisticated.
Future Rides: Dodge Viper (hopefully someday) & 2009 Pontiac G8/ 2015 Chevrolet SS (seriously)
Current Rides: 2002 Dodge Dakota QC 4.7 V8 4x4 & 2009 Saturn Vue XR (wife's car)
Past Rides: 1992 Buick Century, 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, 1998 Buick Regal LS, 2003 Buick Regal GS, 2004 Honda Civic EX, 1998 Honda Civic DX & 2001 Ford ZX2
I hope Cadillac keeps the styling dramatic, edgy and chiseled, with plenty of "V" shape to the rear deck lid! The door mirrors look the same as the Chevy Volt's in that video--hopefully there will be subtle details throughout the car to further differentiate it from the Volt.
If I had to guess the biggest changes will be that Voltec 1.5 will use the same electric motor as the Spark EV. This electric motor can put down 400ft-lbs of torque and will be held back in the Spark. But I think GM will unleash the motor in the ELR with a different gear ratio to unlock more power out of the motor.
Base on what I have seen the range extender in the ELR is going to be a naturally asperated 2.0L Direct Injected 4 cylinder. A bigger engine provides little performance advantage in Voltec.

Can't wait for the full on reveal. Considering where it will be priced it Voltec system should have had a Caddy version from the start.
