The Cadillac Converj has caused quite a stir amongst the head honchos of General Motors.
Ever since it made a successful debut at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, the fate of the Converj – which is based on the Chevy Volt – has been a hot topic of debate but now, it appears that GM’s big brass is finally on the verge – we say ‘on the verge’ because with GM, anything can still happen – of putting the Converj up for production.
But it’s not entirely the fault of the bosses at GM. The economic crisis and, to be more specific, GM’s filing for bankruptcy a few months ago all but spelled doom and gloom for the Converj. But now that GM has somehow regained its footing, a number of GM higher-ups, including vice chairman Bob Lutz, have steadily voiced their support to – finally – build the car.
Initially intended for a late 2011 release, the Converj is now being looked at having a possible release in 2014 – that is under the premise that the executive board doesn’t retract their decision again.
The market for the Cadillac Converj is growing in this day and age with more and more people voicing their strong preference of having electric cars as opposed to the fuel-based vehicles. The Chevrolet Volt, which boasts of being able to drive 230 miles per gallon, is slowly becoming a hot item in the market. Even other car brands have started developing their own electric cars because of its growing popularity.
Now, it seems that General Motors is finally ready to throw the Cadillac Converj into the mix. Let’s just hope that they don’t change their minds again.
