A four cylinder Cadillac with a battery. Is there really a fool's market for a $50K go cart? It could be way more than that. At this time, the price is too high to mention. These cars (Volt/Cadillac) cost too much of a premium for the "early adopter" joy that a few folks seek.

It will sell as well as the Hybrid Escalade did.
It will sell as well as the 4 Wheel Steering Silverado did.
It will do a fraction of as well as VOLT did.

Reminds me of the Cadillac Cimarron, GM 8-6-4, GM diesels, and Vegas.

The executives and engineerings responsible for those engineering marvals all got together and created the Volt.

And don't forget the Obama push. But a Cadillac version just compounds the folly. It will be a glorified Volt, not a Tesla. There will always be people bleeding cash that have to have these things as a band-aid to their ego. The volume won't be profitable.
GM hopes they can re-skin a Volt at a reasonable cost and increase the volume of the Volt platform to work off some of the extreme fixed costs.
Now that the car companies are in the green again, they will go off focus and lose money in these area.
