Snowy ‘spy shots’ capture GM’s 2014 Cadillac ELR plug-in hybrid

Cadillac ELR winter testing

General Motors is up to it again. This morning GM released some “spy shots” of the 2014 Cadillac ELR in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan undergoing some extreme winter weather testing.

We’ve seen this before from GM but the fad seems to be spreading. Just a few weeks ago we reported that McLaren had done the same thing; posting photos of its latest supercar in camouflage.

If you’re not familiar, the ELR is a two-door Cadillac variant of the Chevrolet Volt. Cadillac, surprisingly, is trying to steer the press away from calling it a Cadillac Volt or “Coupe De Volt,” as some have come to refer to it. Regardless, the ELR has the same electric motor and on-board 1.4-liter gasoline generator as the Volt.

GM brags in its press release that the ELR is enjoying the four-inches of fresh snow that fell in the Upper Peninsula during the testing. And that with the “HiPer Strut front suspension and watts link rear suspension, the ELR is designed to provide owners with a sporty, yet confident handling character.”

So if you’re wondering if the future Cadillac (kinda) EV is cold weather worthy? Apparently it is.
