Autoblog admires the Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon, Jalopnik the Volt

Autoblog has a post with a photo gallery of the 2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon.

I keep saying Sport Wagon but sometimes it is shown as the plural Sports Wagon.  I’ll work on it.  GM messaging looks like it always shows it singluar. Anyway, good that the ‘general’ car blogs are picking up on the new CTS Sport Wagon.

Meanwhile Jalopnik is running info on the Chevrolet Volt.    GM showed the Volt live this morning as part of GMNext.com day and the 100th birthday celebration.   The Volt is more and more interesting if the powerplant may next migrate to a future Cadillac model.

The dramatically-designed 2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon makes its European premiere at Paris, followed by production launch in spring of 2009.

GM is noting that the Volt is NOT a plug-in hybrid, but rather an extended range vehicle.  Ah; I’ll have to think about that, but I think they are pointing out the difference between a hybrid with minimal battery backup like the Toyota Prius or the  2-mode Cadillac Escalade Hybrid, and a car like the Chevrolet Volt that actually is an electric car with a gas engine generator to recharge on the go.

Top speed of 100mph may be new news, but seems plenty fast enough for most people.
