Cadillac's electrified Converj concept, revealed in 2009 and forced by the GFC onto the backburner, is on its way to production.

Renamed ELR, the concept was refined and 'revealed' a second time last year. Now, GM has confirmed it will unveil the Volt-based production car in Detroit next month.

While the ELR shares much of its architecture and drivetrain with the Holden Volt extended-range electric vehicle, this 'Caddy' is more of a lifestyle offering than a new-age family car.

Details fo the production model are thin on the ground, although it is expected the ELR will retain the Volt's petrol-assisted electric drivetrain, although a more powerful and performance-oriented battery is likely.

On the styling front, the teaser image released today suggests the ELR will retain much of its concept styling, although a more slender C-pillar and smaller tail-lights stand out as clear changes.

Reports suggest the ELR will also get a more powerful petrol engine, replacing the Volt's 1.4 litre unit with either a 1.6 or 1.8 litre option.

The Detroit Auto Show opens on January 14.
