Cadillac has formally announced plans to introduce the brand's ELR extended range electric coupe next month at the 2013 North American International Auto Show. Along with the announcement Cadillac released a small teaser of the ELR, confirming that it looks like, well, what we already knew it would look like.
The ELR is based off of a similar architecture to the Chevrolet Volt and is allegedly going to use the same 1.4-liter generator and electric motor that the Volt currently encompasses. It is unclear at this time if the ELR will see some "Cadillac only" specifications such as a longer range or more power.
At last report the ELR was slated to enter production in late 2013 as a 2014 model. The design of both the exterior and interior are expected to follow the Converj concept vehicle that was shown a couple years ago.
GMI will be in attendance at NAIAS the week of January 14th for the ELR reveal.
