Car Tech Video: Efficiency and luxury merge into Cadillac ELR

1:29 /

Merging a Cadillac and a Chevy Volt sounds interesting, but GM decided to do just that and brought out the Cadillac ELR at the 2013 Detroit auto show. CNET's Antuan Goodwin takes a look at the unusual but stylish pairing.

-What's up guys? I'm Antoine Goodwin with CNET.com and we're on the floor on the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. We're taking a look at what happens with a Chevy Volt and a Cadillac CTS Coupe make sweet, sweet love? This is the Cadillac ELR and it is a Coupe with a 2+2 seating configuration and underneath its hood is pretty much the exact Volt Tech power train out of the Chevy Volt. So you're looking at about 40 miles of electric-only range from its batteries pack before the gasoline engine has to jump in and extend your range up to about 300 miles [unk]. Again, like the Volt, it's kind of the best of both worlds. You can commute under all electric power but still takes this car in the road trip. Inside the cabin, we got a very high quality Cadillac interior with a very angle dashboard sort of slopes towards the driver and the infotainment system is handled by Cadillac's new Q system that we've seen in previous vehicles before. So if you're in the market for a Volt but you're looking for something a little bit more upscale and you're really a fun of Cadillac's art and science design language, you should probably take a look at the Cadillac ELR which should be hitting the market soon. I'm Antoine Goodwin with CNET.com on the floor of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show
