Cadillac releases second ELR teaserWed, 09 Jan 2013
Cadillac has released the second teaser image of the 2014 ELR electric vehicle ahead of its world debut next week in Detroit.
The heavily-camouflaged ELR, which will be unveiled on 15 January, was photographed driving through the mountains of Southern California during development testing.
The car will be a sporty two-door coupe that was previewed by the Converj concept, which made its debut at the 2009 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS).
The Converj was approved for production and although plans stalled due to GM's financial difficulties, the Coverj reappeared – this time dubbed the ELR – in 2011 and was again approved for production.
From the first teaser image we can see that the production ELR retains most of the concept's design cues, such as the boomerang-shaped head and tail lamps that stretch a considerable distance along the sides of the car, along with the prominent feature line rising from behind the front wheelarch to the rear.
