Apparently two-door coupes are hard to sell and that’s one issue that’s keeping GM from putting its latest Cadillac Converj concept into production. According to Motor Trend, GM is now considering a four-door version of the Converj concept for production making it more of a four-door-coupe for Cadillac.
Don’t get too excited because sources say that the car won’t be here before 2013 and until GM executives can make a more solid business case for the car. GM’s Vice chairman Bob Lutz says that the production version of the Cadillac Converj will be as different from the concept model as the Camaro was from its concept. That’s not very much of a difference at all.
Insiders say that General Motors will be conducting study groups to help it decide on the car.
Refresher: Cadillac Converj Concept is powered by a Voltec-system along with 4-cylinder engine that produces 161-hp with a maximum torque of 273 lb-ft. The Converj can travel up 40 miles on battery-power alone. Top speed is rated at 100 mph. GM says that it takes less than 3 hours to recharge the battery at 240V and about 8 hours from a 120V outlet.
