The Cadillac Converj is a concept car manufactured by the Cadillac division of General Motors. It was first shown at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and made its West Coast debut at the 2009 Orange County Auto Show.
Incorporating the propulsion system from the Chevy Volt—the battery pack, the 120-kilowatt electric motor, and the four-cylinder engine-generator, collectively dubbed the “Voltec” electric propulsion system—the Converj has an all-electric range of 40 miles (64 km) and a top speed of 100 mph (160 km/h). The two-door, front-wheel-drive coupe recharges in only three hours using a 240-volt outlet, the type commonly used for large electric appliances.
An August 2009 BusinessWeek report stated that GM Vice Chairman Robert Lutz wants to see the Converj go to production, possibly as early as 2014.
