If you’re a fan of the Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid, but have wanted a bit more style, General Motors might have something for you. Next month GM is going to unveil the 2014 Cadillac ELR extended-range electric vehicle, which shares its electric drivetrain with the Volt, but is wrapped in a much sexier exterior. We’re just under a month away from its official debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, but GM has released a teaser photo of the new electric luxury coupe.

The 2014 Cadillac ELR will borrow its design heavily from the Cadillac Converj concept. From this single teaser photo we can tell that the production version will retain the concept’s side profile, but we will have to wait until next month to see what has changed. GM hasn’t released any other details about the 2014 ELR, other than stating that it will enter production by the end of 2013 and be built at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck plant.

“The ELR will be in a class by itself, further proof of our commitment to electric vehicles and advanced technology,” General Motors North America President Mark Reuss said in a keynote address at the SAE Convergence Conference in Detroit. “People will instantly recognize it as a Cadillac by its distinctive, signature look and true-to-concept exterior design.”

The 2014 Cadillac ELR will have its world debut on January 15th.

Fotoxx Is a Bright Photo Editing Adolescent but Its Future Is Iffy

December 12th, 2012
Fotoxx sounds more like a medical solution to fix a patient's physical appearance. It applies that concept to injecting tweaks on your photographic images. The results are impressive. This photo editing kit has a look and feel that separates it from the expected approaches taken by the likes of Gimp and Krita, for instance. Fotoxx is geared toward photo enhancement; it's not meant to be an editing fix for other types of graphical images. If the bulk of what you use a photo editor to do is make photos look better, Fotoxx is worthy of a try. A quick comparison with your current photo editor could bring pleasant surprises.
