The site Green Car Reports learned from a GM insider that Cadillac has given the go-ahead for a production car based on the Converj concept it showed off at the 2009 Detroit auto show. The Converj concept is driven by the same series hybrid system as the Chevy Volt.

The Converj is a two-door sport coupe using an electric motor to drive the wheels. A gas engine works in conjunction with a lithium ion battery pack to provide electricity.

According to Green Car Reports, the Converj-based car would get an updated version of the electric power train used in the Volt. Cadillac says the car would come out in 2013 as a 2014 model.
