Cadillac Converj Gets Production Green Light For 2014

Follow Nelson

When it first debuted at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, the Cadillac Converj Concept confirmed Cadillac knows how to style a sporty, luxurious hybrid--but despite talk from GM, including then-product-supremo Bob Lutz, few in the industry expected it to reach production. Now, two years after the plan was canned, it's back in the limelight--and it'll be on the road by 2013 as a 2014 year-model, according to inside information dug up by GreenCarReports.

Sporting a "Generation 1.5 Voltec" powertrain, the Converj will keep its plug-in hybrid drivetrain, but it'll likely drop the funky spelling for a more familiar three-letter name.

We still have two more years before the production Converj hits the streets, but there's every reason to look forward to its arrival. For the full details on the Converj's resurrection, read the exclusive story at GreenCarReports.

  1. I'm curious to see whether they launch this as a flagship...The styling seems almost too close to the CTS coupe though...

  2. Like it! But the thin headlights need to be rethought.

  3. it looks like a cross between the Euro styled Civic Type R and the Lexus IS, with a massive old school Caddy fat front end on it.
    then again seeing as its soley aimed at the Yank market then it will probably be a sucess, as they seem to love bulbous over manufactured front ends...pun entirely intended
