Chevrolet and the Crowned Shield, sister companies 'parented' by GM, know how to share. As such, it's not surprising to learn Chevy will be loaning Caddy the leading-edge technology fitted in the Volt. The reason the Crowned Shield has asked Chevy to borrow the Volt technology is another story. It has car enthusiasts, like us, on the edges of our seats.
Remember the Converj coupe concept that debuted at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show? Well, Cadillac has confirmed plans to bring it into production. Coined the ELR, the Converj production car will be engineered with a T-shaped lithium-ion battery and range-extending generator. If you've read about the design of the Chevy Volt, you know this configuration represents a mirror image.
Like the Chevrolet Volt, the ELR is slated to be a hybrid - not a pure electric vehicle (EV). So while, it will adopt the Volt's electric powertrain, it will also feature Chevy's four-cylinder gasoline engine - also featured in the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo (available as a four-door sedan or sportier five-door hatch) and 2011 Chevrolet Cruze (award-winning four-door sedan).
