According to The Detroit Bureau, Cadillac is aiming to produce a new high-end flagship on the massive Omega platform. The news comes in the wake of the exuberant public reaction to the company's Ciel Concept, and General Motors says that a hard-top version of the lengthy convertible is already in the works. We may see that concept in as little as a few months. While General Motors is being fairly tight-lipped about the vehicle's actual production schedule, The Detroit Bureau reports that the new Omega may land in dealerships by 2015 at the latest.

But that's not the only news from Cadillac. The company has also made it clear that buyers can expect to be able to snap up a range of hybrid vehicles from the luxury automaker. While that includes efforts like the upcoming Volt-based ELR, the brand intends to flex its tech muscles with multiple hybrid technologies in the near future. The Detroit Bureau hypothesizes that Cadillac may dabble in incredibly efficient vehicles as well as high-performance hybrids similar to what Porsche is currently producing.

      Good for Cadillac. Glad to see one American luxury maker stepping up to compete with the Germans.

      Talking about revitalizing a company. The CTS, ATS, XTS and now this. Cadillac is definitely stepping up to the plate.

      Build it and they will come! I'm all for having Cadi doing a customization program like Ferarri and like McLaren just announced. Build only a few hundred a year and people will be offering their first born for this car. Ok well I would anyways.

      If Caddy makes this ship, it better be an Eldorado. Not an ETS, not an ETC, not an ETR or whatever--a classic Eldorado, even if it'll be the only Caddy without the alphabet soup name.

        Cadillac is doing something right if the only thing that people can find to bitch about is the NAME of a concept. Honestly, I don't give a crap what they call it, just get it to production looking as close to this concept as realistically feasible.

      Great new and considering Cadillac's record for turning concepts almost directly into the production car like the SRX, and CTS coupe I think they will do a great job. Also the Camaro and other were translated almost directly! This will return them to the days of the 30's when they were the world standard and competed with Rolls.

      It is amazing how much the hood and trunk mimic the lines on a 75-78 Eldroado.

      Realistically I don't expect to see the Ciel hit production looking like that any time soon (if ever), but I would be happy enough seeing some of its styling cues used in an upcoming Caddy flagship. I also think its great news that Caddy will be doing more hybrids - using GM's hybrid technology in Cadillacs will help pay for the technology a lot faster which should both bring about improvements and reduce costs.

      I hope they did not water down the design too much. The concept looked great because it has presence, just like a Cadillac should, (and does in its heyday). Their latest cars were pretty nice, but did not have much presence. The DTS, especially, looked very generic and cheap. Big but utterly blah. Even their popular CTS, lacks a bit presence in its base form, though the CTS-V is appropriately menacing.

      ELR. Eldorodo Lighting Rod. It makes sense since it's a hybrid
