Cadillac Volt may come to Detroit next month

We’ve been hearing for some time now that GM is working on a Cadillac version of the Chevrolet Volt. According to AutoWeek, we may just see a Cadillac that uses the Volt technology at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show next month.

“There’s going to have to be some kind of dramatic environmental statement from Cadillac,” vice chairman Bob Lutz said at the unveiling of the 2011 Chevrolet Volt back in Sept.

Lutz also said that a small-to-midsize Cadillac crossover would be a logical candidate for the Volt’s technology. Cadillac launched the Provoq concept based on the SRX last year at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show. The Cadillac Provoq can be driven 280 miles on hydrogen and 20 miles on pure electricity for a total 300 miles. AutoWeek thinks that it’s pretty interesting that GM is getting ready to launch the 2010 Cadillac SRX next month in Detroit with sales to begin in the second quarter of 2009.

What we think is interesting is that GM is running out of money fast and we highly doubt that they will launch such a significant product at a time like this – so we’re filing this under rumors.
