Cadillac Converj Concept
The four-passenger Converj concept is intended to show how GM’s electric propulsion technology – called Voltec – can power a luxury coupe. The technology enables up to 40 miles of petrol and emissions-free electric driving with extended-range capability of hundreds of miles.

Cadillac’s extended-range electric vehicle (E-REV) concept has a new body style that is an evolution of the brand’s traditional Art and Science design theme, with an aggressive forward-leaning arc profile dominating the design.

The concept’s Voltec electric propulsion system is made up of a 16-kWh, T-shaped battery, an electric drive unit, and a four-cylinder engine-generator. It uses electricity as its primary source to drive the car. A thermally managed battery pack contains more than 220 lithium-ion cells that provide the primary power to drive the Converj electrically up to 40 miles without using fuel or producing tailpipe emissions. The battery is integrated into the Converj’s chassis and stores electricity from the grid when the vehicle is plugged in. It takes less than three hours to recharge the battery at 240V, or about eight hours from a 120V outlet.

those tail lights going across and into the actual sides of the body would seem annoying to me if i were driving next to it, in my blind spot and what not.

That's indeed a Cadillac wherever you put it. Not much I like about it though, maybe just the side glass treatment.

Update!

Cadillac Converj 'will be made'
[
GM executive Bob Lutz has confirmed the Cadillac Converj concept, a premium coupe based on the Chevrolet Volt, will make production.

"You'll see it when you see it. We have to slot it into the product line-up," said Lutz.

The so-called Voltec system from the Volt means that the wheels are always battery-powered, offering a 40-mile range which can then be extended with a four-cylinder petrol engine charging the lithium ion battery.

GM's product chief Bob Lutz said that the Cadillac Converj concept proves that the blueprint laid down by the Volt can be scaled up or down. In the Converj the system delivers 273lb ft of torque and a 100mph top speed.

ELR brings power to the pavement with advanced electric propulsion and an onboard gas-power generator. Learn more about what drives the first ever ELR.

Eight Months ago, Matt got a Chevy Volt as a daily driver, and won't shut up about how awesome it is. The problem is, it's rather dull looking, so no one understands how awesome it is unless they drive it. To fix that, GM gave Cadillac it's own Volt, called the ELR. It looks like the future, but is it any good to drive? We drive them back to back to find out.
