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.
The Converj design has won several awards, including:
Best Concept Vehicle of 2009, Eyes On Design Awards.
Most Significant Concept Vehicle of 2009, North American Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards.
Specialty Concept Vehicle of the Year 2009, Southeast Automotive Media Organization (SEAMO).
