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

    GM needs to jump all over something like this. As a matter of fact, this should have been a part of the original concept for the vehicle. This car is made to be a convertible. Speaking of convertibles…why is it Caddy has none?

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?

Limited edition drop-top ELR preparing for the California (and Dubai) sunshine.
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

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

However, Newport Convertible Engineering (NCE), a custom conversion ship, can distance your new whip a little further from the Chevy – by cutting off the top!
Says the company on their latest luxury offering:

NCE will produce limited Cadillac ELR convertible worldwide.   For our USA clients: You may ship your car to our main headquarters in the USA, California.  For our International clients: You may also contact our main office in the USA for booking your vehicle in our international facilities for convertible conversion in Spain, Barcelona or UAE, Dubai.   Tel: 001 714 848 0011

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.

    Wow, that looks fantastic as a convertible!

    Underway From NCE Is The 2014 Cadillac ELR Convertible
    2014 Cadillac ELR Convertible

    The brand is looking to diversify  the plg-in hybrid Cadillac ELRcoupe, that hasn’t gotten a positive vibe in terms of demand on the  vehicle,  the 2014 ELR is next in line to have its roof chopped off Cadillac convertibles, by Newport Convertible Engineering (NCE), known for drop top versions for the Porsche Cayenne and the Acura TL and much more than just a couple of other Cadillacs, that include the DTS, CTS and Escalade.
    Production will be  limited  for the convertible 2014 ELR models  with details being  limited at the moment as to what their numbers will be, but NCE says that U.S owners can ship their vehicles at the company’s headquarter in California, with international clients getting their  EV modified at facilities located in Barcelona  in Spain  and Dubai in the  United Arab Emirates. With the stock model available starting at $75k  before any federal incentives, the pricing shouldn’t be too far off, just a bit more expensive.

    NCE ready to cut Cadillac ELR’s roof

     Stock car kicks off at 75,995 USD

    NCE has developed a convertible conversion for the 2014 Cadillac ELR.
    Brought to you by the same team who axed the roof of the Nissan GT-R, Range Roverand Porsche Cayenne, NCE is ready to offer its recipe for the very few people who actually purchased the 2014 Cadillac ELR which kicks off at 75,995 USD (41,000 USD more than the Chevrolet Volt).
    Addressing to a limited crowd, Newport Convertible Engineering says U.S. owners of the ELR can ship their cars to the firm’s main headquarters in California, while international clients can send it to the company’s facilities in Barcelona, Spain or Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The conversion will be offered in limited numbers while pricing is available on request.
    NCE surely won’t be expecting lots of customers since Cadillac delivered only 58 ELR units in February and 41 cars a month earlier. December was ELR’s first month on sale during which just six people placed an order.

    2014 Cadillac ELR won’t receive a high-performance version like the CTS and the ATS, as stated by Mark Reuss earlier this week, but the brand is looking to “expand the tuning envelope” of the plug-in hybrid coupe.
    As far as body styles are concerned though, there’s no way Cadillac is willing to expand. However, it seems that the 2014 ELR is next in line to have its roof chopped off by Newport Convertible Engineering (NCE), known for offering droptop versions for the Porsche Cayenne, the Acura TL and more than just a couple of other Cadillacs, including the DTS, CTS and the Escalade.
    Newport Convertible Engineering says it will produce a limited number of convertible 2014 ELR models with worldwide availability. Details are limited at the moment, but NCE states that US owners can ship their vehicles at the company’s headquarter in California, while international clients can have their EV modified at facilities located in Barcelona (Spain) and Dubai (United Arab Emirates).

    There’s no word on pricing yet, but the 2014 ELR will make for an expensive convertible with the stock model available from $75,000 before any federal incentives. It will be interesting to see if Newport Convertible Engineering finds a market for a ragtop ELR.
