Camouflaged Cadillac ELR spotted on the roadMon, 03 Sep 2012
Autoweek reader Josh Lindquist recently snapped these photos of what may be a camouflaged Cadillac ELR cruising around metropolitan Detroit. While the photos don't show the car from every angle, its lines are strikingly similar to those on the ELR featured on Cadillac's official Web site.
The ELR first appeared as the Cadillac Converj concept in 2009. In August 2011, Cadillac confirmed that the sleek hybrid will enter production at some point in the future. The appearance of this dazzlingly wrapped road-capable car roughly one year after that announcement suggests that GM is indeed taking steps to make the ELR a reality.
If the ELR does make it to dealer lots, expect it to be powered by a hybrid system similar to that of the Chevrolet Volt.
Do you think the ELR has a spot in Cadillac's current lineup, which spans from the sporty ATS to the large, luxurious XTS? Feel free to let us know below.
