2014 Cadillac ELR priced up (and pitched right at Tesla)

GM has announced pricing for the 2014 Cadillac ELR, the company's luxury extended-range hybrid coupe, and despite the similarities to the Volt under the bodywork, the eco-Caddy certainly won't be cheap. The two-door will have a sticker price of $75,995 including destination charge when it hits forecourts in January 2014, excluding tax and other fees, but GM points out that tax credits of up to $7,500 could bring that down to $68,495.

Cadillac Elmiraj Concept wants to give BMW sleepless nights

Cadillac has taken the wraps off of the Elmiraj Concept, the company's latest design study, a luxury four-seater grand coupé borrowing design cues from the monstrous Ciel Concept. Over 5.2 meters long, with the sort of menacing styling Darth Vader might approve of, the Elmiraj Concept runs a 4.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 good for around 500HP, pushing its power through the rear wheels in what seems a direct - if only theoretical at present - challenge to BMW's 6-Series tourer, and wrapping the interior in backlit titanium and leather.

Cadillac’s first 2014 ELR pulls off production line (but it’s not for showrooms)

Cadillac's first 2014 ELR hybrids have been snapped leaving the production line, though the "range-extended" car itself still isn't expected to arrive in showrooms until early in the new year. The initial ELR cars - which borrow much of their mechanical and technological magic from the Chevrolet Volt, but wrap it up in a coupe shell with various luxury extras - are destined for further testing, similar to the cold-weather conditions tests GM put the ELR through back in February.

Cadillac Super Cruise self-driving cars hit the road (but not the showroom, yet)

Cadillac has begun public road-testing its Super Cruise system, semi-autonomous driving that could beat Google's self-driving cars to market by hitting production models within this decade. The Super Cruise system can track lanes, speed limits, and traffic around the vehicle, automatically adjusting speed to suit, and braking to avoid cars ahead. 360-degree sensors keep an eye on road conditions all around the car.

Smart Wheels: We talk Infotainment & the 2014 CTS with GM’s Mark Reuss

Once upon a time, your car had to be the fastest or the most luxurious if you wanted to stand out. Now, as GM has discovered, a car has to be talkative if tech-savvy drivers are to take them seriously. A path that started with OnStar has ended up with cars that talk to your smartphone and tablet, quietly plan their own servicing, and generally take the sting out of owning and maintaining a modern vehicle. SlashGear sat down with GM President of General Motors North America Mark Reuss to talk infotainment and how the company is betting on more than just top speed for models like the new 2014 Cadillac CTS.
