The ELR does have the capability to be quicker than the Volt even with the same technology and small changes.

Here are some points outlining what could be done:
- Theyll keep essentially the Volt battery design & LG Chem cells, but likely use a larger percentage of it for better range
- They might very well add super capacitors to the battery to achieve faster acceleration without risking battery damage
- They might also overdrive the traction motor for the few seconds needed to get faster acceleration 0-60 & 45-85
- Theyll probably modify the engine to use the Atkinson cycle for >50mpg in charge sustaining mode CS mode & stick with gasoline regular in stead of premium required by the Volt
- Hopefully, theyll use Caddys CUE signal interface system in place of the Volts "Apple-inspired" center stack
- Hopefully, theyll use Caddys Magnetic Ride Control suspension system for improved cornering & chuck-hole response
- They should definitely use full power seats in front, pneumatic lifters for the hood and tiny rear-looking cameras not mirrors
- They should offer both a Sun/Moon Roof and a Solar PV Roof to help fan-cool the interior when parked in hot sunlight
