DETROIT — The 2014 Cadillac ELR, a luxury coupe sibling of the Chevrolet Volt, is being teased ahead of its debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in an official "spy" photo provided by General Motors. The wraps come off the Cadillac ELR on January 15.

The photo shows a camouflaged version of the Cadillac ELR undergoing testing through the mountains of southern California. The image looks similar to real spy photos of the car taken last summer.

"Cadillac customers are going to enjoy the unique features ELR will bring to the market," said Chris Thomason, ELR chief engineer, in a statement on Tuesday. "We're going to change the way people think about luxury and electrification."

The plug-in hybrid Cadillac ELR is the production version of the Cadillac Converj, a concept vehicle that debuted at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show.

Production of the 2014 Cadillac ELR will begin in late 2013, General Motors confirmed earlier.

The coupe is expected to get more power than the Volt. It is also expected to be more expensive than the Volt. The 2013 Chevrolet Volt is priced at $39,995, including an $850 destination charge.

Edmunds says: GM has become fond of swathing its future products in camo and issuing "spy" photos, a tactic that lampoons real spy photographers and piques public interest in its cars.
