Cadillac Converj Luxury Concept Coupe to be at Seattle Auto Show

The Cadillac of Electric Vehicles…

The stunning four-passenger Cadillac Converj luxury coupe concept rvehicle has been confirmed to appear at this year’s Seattle Auto Show. The Converj reveals how GM technology can deliver up to 40 miles of gas and emissions-free electric driving with extended-range capability of hundreds of miles. The car’s Voltec electric propulsion system is made up of a 16-kWh, T-shaped battery, an electric drive unit, and a four-cylinder engine-generator.

It uses electricity as its primary source to drive the car. A thermally managed battery pack contains more than 220 lithium-ion cells that provide the primary power to drive the Converj electrically up to 40 miles without using fuel or producing tailpipe emissions. A technologically advanced driver center increases efficiency and reduces the draw on the battery.

Features include:
• Touch-screen navigation, climate, center-stack controls and audio systems
• Screen displays for features including regenerative braking, battery charge level and power output
• No inside rearview or outside mirrors; cameras provide surrounding images on a screen placed high on the instrument panel for a full, panoramic view
• Push-button ignition and power-folding front seats

The Seattle Auto Show, presented by State Farm and sponsored by AutoTrader.com and BECU, will feature hundreds of new 2010 vehicles, including fuel-efficient hybrids, versatile vans, go-anywhere trucks, plus energy-wise electrics, eye-catching exotics and rare concepts at Qwest Field Event Center, Nov. 11-15.
