Video from General Motors and Synaptic Digital: New Cadillac ELR Electrifies In Its Debut at the North American International Auto Show

Detroit, Jan 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Cadillac today unveiled the 2014 ELR at the North American International Auto Show. The sleek by Text-Enhance">luxury coupe is a gas-electric hybrid that leverages the Chevrolet Volt's successful extended range all-electric powertrain.

This means most daily commutes will require zero gasoline with zero emissions.

ELR production begins in the United States in late 2013 with sales starting in early 2014 in North America and expanding to global markets including CONTACT: Synaptic Digital, A Definition 6 Company mediadesk@synapticdigital.com http://media.globenewswire.com/cache/14828/small/11833.jpg http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/ti nf=MTMjMTAwMTgyOTgjMTQ4Mjg=
