General Motors began shipping 2014 Cadillac ELR electric luxury vehicles to dealerships Monday from its Detroit-Hamtramck plant, the automaker has announced.

The ELR combines battery-only electric power with a range-extending gasoline-powered electric generator to achieve a driving range that exceeds 300 miles, according to GM.

The plant also produces the all-new Chevrolet Impala, Malibu, and Volt, as well as the Opel Ampera extended-range electric vehicle. Employees built the Cadillac DTS sedan from 2006 to 2011.
