Based on the same plug-in hybrid powertrain as the Chevrolet Volt, the ELR oozes visual wattage, with proportions and stance that rival a Lamborghini. Production of the luxury coupe alongside the Chevrolet Volt begins late next year at GM's Detroit-Hamtramck plant. Like the Volt, the ELR is expected to go 38 miles per battery charge before a gasoline engine kicks in. Thanks to its slick design, drivers can make a statement about their style and climate change simultaneously.
