Cadillac ELR Convertible Imagined By Newport Convertible Engineering
Cadillac put their luxurious plug-in hybrid coupe, the ELR, on sale in December of last year. The ELR is based on the Voltec platform which underpins the Chevrolet Volt, and even though it uses Cadillac’s Art and Science design language, is luxurious enough for a king and features the unique Regen On Demand system, the ELR isn’t all that different from its bow tie-wearing platform mate.
The ELR could benefit from becoming a bit more quintessentially Cadillac. One of the ways GM could do this, while differentiating it from any other plug-in EV would be to offer it in convertible format, just like in the rendering fromNewport Convertible Engineering pictured above.
Considering the popularity of EVs and hybrids in markets with warm climates such as Florida and California, the ELR convertible might not be such a bad idea. It wouldn’t help the $75,995 asking price, which many believe is already too high, but it would make it the only hybrid convertible you can buy today, automatically putting it in a league of its own.
Of course, this idea is a little farfetched, and it’s extremely unlikely GM would jump on board. But if anyone out there finds it appealing, Newport Convertible Engineering might be willing to build you one. After all, they have chopped the roof off of many other late-model Cadillacs, including the STS, DTS, CTS and even the Escalade

Cadillac ELR Convertible Concept Makes A More Compelling Car
Sales of the Cadillac ELR have thus far been disappointing, but perhaps an unofficial convertible conversion can make the luxury hybrid more appealing? Newport Convertible Engineering is well practiced in the air of removing the roof, and they’ve taken their talents to the tarted-up version of the Chevy Volt, at least digitally.
This photoshopped rendering of what a Cadillac ELR convertible would look like isn’t likely to convince anyone that they have to have one of the luxury hybrids in their driveway. It does, however, give a little more depth and dimension to the ELR, which has been lambasted by the automotive press as overpriced and underwhelming. For $75,000, there are a lot more compelling cars out there, and GM has fumbled the marketing campaign with a commercial that is all American machismo and tells us nothing about the car itself.
No wonder GM has barely sold 100 of them since December.
Newport Convertible Engineering out of California (with satellite locations in Spain and the UAE, of course) are specialists in the art of making convertibles out of fixed-roof vehicles, like the Dodge Challenger. While their roofless conversion isn’t going to make the ELR any cheaper, it would make the Cadillac ELR the only hybrid convertible on the market. That might be worth a tidy sum to the right person, because as far as green convertibles go, your only other options are the Tesla Roadster or the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive. One is no longer built, and the other is, well, you know. A Smart car. Ew.
My point? Cadillac should consider offering an ELR convertible of its own. The added structural rigidity from the low-hanging battery pack would, in theory, limit any additional reinforcement needed for removing the roof. And while it’d certainly make the Cadillac even more expensive, it’d also offer green car buyers a much more compelling reason to try out the ELR, especially now thata performance version has been nixed. Because for $75,000, I’d rather have a slightly-used Chevy Volt and a new Corvette Stingray than the Cadillac ELR.
As a droptop though? I’d give the ELR a little more consideration. Would you?

While Cadillac convertibles recently killed any hopes of a high-performance ELR-V version of its hybrid ELR model, California company Newport Convertible Engineering has just announced that it will build a limited edition convertible version of the car. NCE, which has already churned out unique drop-top models of cars like the Porsche Cayenne, Cadillac Escalade and an upcoming Nissan GT-R convertible, says it will market the convertible ELR in California, Barcelona and Dubai.

With stock models of the hybrid ELR starting at $75,000, the drop-top version is expected to be as expensive as it is rare. Still, it will be quite the looker, and will continue to offer the same 207-horsepower electric motor and 3.6-liter V6.

Cadillac ELR Drop-Top By NCE
Ownership of a Cadillac convertibles is not an inexpensive proposition as the 37 mile, extended range car starts at $75,995. Then after you purchase one, there is the throngs of people you have to deal with who are only too happy to point out the Caddy’s similarities to its Chevy Volt cous

Truthfully, and given Cadillac’s price point, we kind of wish General Motors had given the car the XLR roof treatment themselves…even if it was only an option.
