The 2011 Cadillac Converj ELR Concept was designed as the successor to the previous 2009 Candillac Converj by the American car manufacturer, General Motors. The Cadillac Converj’s first appearance was at the North American International Auto Show in 2009 held in Detroit, Michigan.
The Converj was also recognized with numerous awards for the design concept vehicle awarde by the Southeast Automotive Media Organization (SEAMO) in the very same year. Cadillac ELR sport coupe is a 2-door, with Front-engine front-wheel body layout. This hybrid coupe is driven by an electric propulsion technology as compared to the GM Voltec platform of the 2009 Converj. Additional key features for the ELR model is the so called extended range capability of its storage batteries to go beyond the additional distance of a hundred kilometers. Thus, according to General Motors, other details of the ELR concept is currently on the development phases in term of the vehicle’s performance, production and prices will be announced later.
There have also been reports that prior to the debut of the Cadillac ELR, several issues were addressed to further enhance the on-going production of this model particularly the performance of hybrid electric motors. However, on the positive note, General Motors recently announced last August 2011 that it will continue the production plan for the Cadillac ELR as scheduled. This innovative design and state of the art engineering makes the ELR model one of its class ever built in the car manufacturing industry to develop a hybrid sports car.
