Cadillac Teases 2014 ELR Plug-In Hybrid Coupe Ahead of Detroit Debut [2013 Detroit Auto Show]
Cadillac has announced that the 2014 ELR plug-in hybrid, the luxury brand’s Volt-based coupe, will debut at the 2013 Detroit auto show. The automaker also released a darkened image of the ELR’s side view (pictured above), which backs up what recent spy photos of the green Caddy already gave away: that the coupe will wear some pretty sultry bodywork.

- Comparison Test: 2013 Cadillac ATS vs. 2012 BMW 328i
- Road Test: 2011 Chevrolet Volt
Although the ELR is based on the humbler Chevrolet Volt, it will receive a host of Cadillac-worthy upgrades, such as a bigger battery pack, a more-powerful engine/electric motor combo, and more refinement. Our spy photographers have caught the ELR’s uncovered interior, which like Cadillac’s recently introduced ATS and XTS will get a version of the company’s capacitive-touch-controlled CUE infotainment system. We don’t particularly like CUE—it’s not terribly intuitive—but the system’s techy look and nature will at least fit in more naturally in the hybrid. We’ll bring you full details following the Cadillac ELR’s debut next month in Detroit.
