We've heard scads of rumors over the past year that General Motors plans to bring a Volt-based Cadillac to market, and it looks like we'll be seeing a concept of the new E-Flex Caddy at the Detroit Auto Show.

According to a report by BusinessWeek, the two-door coupe concept will use the same range-extending EV drivetrain as the Chevrolet Volt, although there's no word on whether the Caddy concept will send power to the front or rear wheels. BW sources say that the vehicle is smaller than the CTS and will feature a bolder exterior design than the CTS coupe. We'll be on hand in Detroit beginning this Sunday to see the Caddivolt concept in person, if it decides to show up.

      Badge engineered Volt - they should make additional styling changes.

        I still don't think that my original comment warranted the term "idiot". That was my original grip.

        Booger Eater is an idiot because he clearly doesn't realize that the photo on this post is a quick and dirty photoshop of a caddy grille pasted onto a Volt, instead of an actual photo of the car.

        He should have realized this because:

        a) It's obvious from looking at the picture
        b) If you read the post, it's not about how they have obtained a photo of the concept, it's about how this concept is rumored to be unveiled in the future
        c) The post says it's a coupe. The Volt is a sedan, which means it can't simply be a rebadge job
        d) There are a bunch of previous comments that all talk about how this is a photoshop

        yet he still didn't realize it. idiot.

        If you were sharing an email you would know if the person was male or female then, wouldn't you?
        • 6 Years Ago

        Why ? His (or her) name, or the comment ? Pls, do explain.
        • 6 Years Ago
        We are different people, just using a common email. Didn't think of that ?
        • 6 Years Ago
        you're a complete idiot. i'd explain why, but i don't think you have the mental capacity to understand the explanation.

      Just as the Toyota Altezza started a taillight trend, I predict that Volt style headlights will soon pop up in aftermarket catalogs.
      • 6 Years Ago
      For those of you who think that this photo is actually the front end of the car, and that it will simply be a rebadge of the Volt, please understand that it will look completely different (especially since it is a coupe and the Volt is a 4 door).
        • 6 Years Ago
        I hope you're right because rebadging cars without changing their looks is so 1980 and if GM keeps doing it I kinda hope they go under...

      It needs to look like the original VOLT concept... that was a cool looking hybrid
      • 6 Years Ago
      IT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPERATIVE

      That Cadillac do this before Lexus does.

      First-mover advantage is very important. Witness the Mustang.

      Please don't give us a Volt with a Cadillac badge. Give us, finally, a bad ass American interpretation of an alternative fuel vehicle. No American Toyotas (yes I'm talking to you Volt).

        aerodynamics and obvious packaging choices will lead all 4 door high mpg vehicles to look similar

        its really no worse than how similar all midsize sedans were 5-10 years ago
      • 6 Years Ago
      Boooo Photoshop.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I nearly spit out my lunch when I quickly glanced at the headline/photo! Thank goodness it's just a photoshop.....
      • 6 Years Ago
      Is it legal to have red lights on the front of the car? I have wondered that since they first showed the production volt.

      In my younger days I once got stopped for having red marker lights in the front.

      (don't judge we all made some poor style choices in our youth)

      Good news I guess. If you are in the market for a luxury car the odds are you aren't worrying too much about gas prices, but the unique drivetrain is likely to draw in customers and it could help GM sell some volts at less of a loss.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Am I alone when I say this looks like the Acura TL and Volt?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Who would want a electric Car anyway? You can buy alot of gas for the price difference. Make mine a v8.

        Careful, you'll get called names !
