GM Detroit-Hamtramck site starts output of Cadillac ELR

Article by Anita Panait, on December 20, 2013

The Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly site of General Motors has commenced rolling out 2014 Cadillac ELR electric luxury vehicles to dealerships. The ELR boasts of being the first application of Extended Range Electric Vehicle technology. It features a merger of dramatic design and extended-range technology to provide a driving experience that is both sporty and environmentally friendly.

The ELR’s driving range goes over 300 miles (480 km) – thanks to a combo of a battery-derived electric power and a range-extending gasoline-powered electric generator.  The extended range technology is especially tuned for Cadillac in the ELR. An ELR driver would not have to worry about gasoline and tailpipe emission if he just needs a vehicle for daily travel.

Cadillac output finally returned to GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck site after two years of absence. The site built the Cadillac DTS large sedan from 2006 to 2011. Detroit-Hamtramck is represented by UAW Local 22.

Workers at the site also build the Chevrolet Impala, Malibu and Volt as well as the Opel Ampera extended-range electric vehicle. Detroit-Hamtramck has assembled some of GM’s best-selling and most important vehicles like the Cadillac Eldorado. So far, the plant has built over 3.5 million Cadillac, Buick and Chevrolet vehicles.
