Cadillac is growing fast in China and with Tesla dominating the headlines with a Chinese launch is clearly time to bring a flagship electric Cadillac to the Chinese market, hence the introduction of the forthcoming ELR to the Chinese patent office.

As we always mention, the ELR’s Chinese registration could be a way to cover GM’s legal rear in case a local upstart decides to knock off the model for their own range. However, a debut in the patent office usually indicates that the car is China bound at some point in the near future.

The Cadillac ELR will be packing a 1.4L engine mated to an electric system to give it an impressive 207bhp and 400Nm of torque and a 0-100km/h time of 8 seconds and to continue on the good news theme – a range of 480km on a single charge and a full tank.

GM currently offers the Chevrolet Volt in China, but as an imported vehicle prices are high and sales are extremely low owing to a lack of subsidies available to imported new energy models.
