DETROIT, USA - Earlier in 2012 we reported on Cadillac's hybrid sedan spotted undergoing testing in the US.

General Motors says production will start late in 2013 of a luxury version of its Chevrolet Volt hybrid.

The automaker said the Cadillac ELR would be assembled at the Detroit-Hamtramck plant in Detroit, the factory that assembles the Chevrolet Volt, Opel Ampera and Holden Volt.

The Cadillac will be powered by a battery and a four-cylinder petrol engine and based on the Cadillac Converj, a concept car unveiled at the 2009 Detroit auto show.

GM North America 's president ,Mark Reuss ,said in a statement that the car was "further proof of our commitment to electric vehicles and advanced technology".

The company will invest R303-million at the plant, which hasn't produced a two-door car since the 1999 Cadillac Eldorado.
