Reilly replied

We won’t do it with this generation, and that will run to 2015. You’d have to wait until after that until you see it.

Which is peculiar, considering GM just announced that it will build a Cadillac Converj-style Volt variant at some point. GM has also shown a near-production-look Volt MPV5 Concept, although that has never been confirmed as a future production model. But Reilly explains that current Volt’s slow ramp-up and “expensive technology” have doomed any possibility of a Volt family of vehicles before the next generation drivetrain launches.

Cadillac Confirms Converj http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2009/11/cadillac-confirms-converj/ http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2009/11/cadillac-confirms-converj/#comments Mon, 09 Nov 2009 22:54:24 +0000 http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/?p=334664 Whadda ya know?

According to the Detroit News, the Cadivolt is go! Not that the announcement comes as any huge surprise: when has GM ever invested heavily in a new platform and not built a Cadillac version? On the other hand, when was the last time GM built a $40k Chevrolet? More importantly, where does the Caddy version’s price go from there?
