The Cadillac Provoq is a concept luxury crossover vehicle that was revealed on 8 January 2008, and manufactured by Cadillac.[1][2] It was introduced at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada and is powered by the plug-in hybrid technology first shown in the Chevrolet Volt. For extended range, a hydrogen fuel cell will recharge the Lithium-ion battery and a solar panel will power onboard accessories, such as interior lighting and the audio system.[3] As the Provoq concept uses a hybrid powertrain it is based on the same GM Voltec platform as the Chevrolet Volt.

The production car shares with the GM Theta platform with Saab which would get its own CUV, the 9-4X. The production vehicle was originally to be called the Cadillac BRX replacing the Cadillac SRX, but Cadillac did introduce an all-new SRX based on the Provoq.[4]
