DETROIT — The 2014 Cadillac ELR, the luxury coupe sibling of the Chevrolet Volt, was teased on Tuesday ahead of its debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

The ELR has a raked profile and a more low-slung look than its Volt sibling. GM offered no new information about the ELR. Earlier, the automaker said that production of the 2014 ELR is set to begin in late 2013.

The plug-in hybrid ELR is based on the Cadillac Converj, a concept that debuted at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show. The ELR gets a 2+2 seating configuration.

GM has said the ELR will "advance the design theme of the Converj while featuring an electric propulsion system made up of a T-shaped lithium-ion battery, an electric drive unit and a four-cylinder engine-generator."

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

The ELR will make its formal debut on January 15.

Edmunds says: The 2014 Cadillac ELR gets its own unique look when stacked up against its Chevrolet Volt sibling, judging from the first glimpse of the car.
