The all-new 2014 Cadillac ELR extended-range electric luxury coupe was set to make its world debut January 15 at the North American International Auto Show — that is, until a camouflaged version was photographed driving through the mountains of Southern California during development testing.

2014 Cadillac ELR Based on the Converj concept that was first seen at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, the Cadillac ELR combines dramatic design with industry-leading extended range electric vehicle (EREV) technology in a unique luxury coupe. The vehicle will be built at the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant later this year and will be the first two-door car built at the plant since the 1999 Cadillac Eldorado.

The ELR is the production version of Cadillac’s Converj concept, and features an electric propulsion system made up of a T-shaped lithium-ion battery, an electric drive unit, and a four-cylinder engine-generator — similar to the EREV system found in the Chevrolet Volt. It will use electricity as its primary power source to drive the car without using gasoline or producing tailpipe emissions. When the battery’s energy is low, the ELR will switch to a gasoline-powered electric generator to allow hundreds of additional driving miles. The lithium-ion battery will be built at GM’s Brownstown Battery Assembly plant in Brownstown, Michigan.
