According to a “well-placed source,” General Motors has apparently approved the Cadillac Converj concept for production. Motor Trend says that GM is looking to bring its extended-range electric-coupe to the roads by 2011 as a 2012 model.
And it doesn’t end there – sources say that GM will follow up with a Cadillac crossover SUV based on the Converj and Volt’s Voltec architecture. The Voltec crossover SUV could also be offered as a Buick. A GM spokesperson denies both reports but Motor Trend says that its source offers a “number of details that lend credence to the possibility” of approval.
The sources said that powertrain of the Converj will be very similar to that of the Volt but the battery mass would be increase to make the Cadillac coupe more powerful. It said that GM plans to build the car as a two-door coupe and not a four-door-coupe as Bob Lutz once suggested.
Either way, we guess we’ll find out soon enough.
