Gearing up for the Belle Isle Grand Prix this weekend, General Motors (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/general+motors/) invited some of the Chevrolet (http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/) and Cadillac (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/) racecar drivers out to its Detroit-Hamtramck (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/detroit+hamtramck/) assembly plant. While there, the racers - including IndyCar Driver and Chevrolet Volt (http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/volt/) owner, Simona De Silvestro - witnessed the very first 2014 Cadillac ELR to roll off the assembly line.

These vehicles are not destined for customers, however, but instead pre-production units will be used by engineers for testing purposes. Actual production of ELR consumer models is expected to commence closer to the end of this year. As a refresher, this range-extended electric Cadillac (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/) shares much of its powertrain with the Volt but will have a sportier coupe design inspired by the Converj Concept (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/cadillac+converj/). De Silvestro manged to snap a few images of here own, which you can see in the gallery below.First Cadillac ELR rolls off the line (http://www.autoblog.com/2013/05/30/first-cadillac-elr-rolls-off-the-line/) originally appeared on Autoblog (http://www.autoblog.com) on Thu, 30 May 2013 15:44:00 EST.
