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.
