About the Cadillac ELR Forum
The Cadillac ELR Forum is a group of like-minded electric vehicle enthusiasts. Dedicated to owners and would-be, or want-to-be owners of the Cadillac ELR, this forum is a great place to research and learn more about the upcoming plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.
The 2014 Cadillac ELR that was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January 2013 is a stunning piece of technology. With 20 inch wheels pushed out to the corners of the vehicle, the ELR is a wedge shaped coupe with strong plunging window lines. The interior is full of chrome, wood and microfiber, blending the traditional luxury of Cadillac with the very latest. Buyers can opt for carbon fiber instead of wood, and Opes semi-aniline leather instead of microfiber.
The ELR largely shares the Chevy Volt drivetrain, but Cadillac has said that platform upgrades will roll out to the ELR first – further entrenching the ELR as a luxury plug-in hybrid with added benefits over the Volt.
The Cadillac ELR electric motor produces 295 ft-lbs of torque, which is 22 more than the Volt’s motor.
Cadillac still hasn’t released any range or price estimates, but online the rumors seem to put the electric range around the same as the Volt’s 38 miles with 300 miles of total range, and a price somewhere between $52,000 and $65,000.
Cadillac has repeatedly said the ELR will be a limited production vehicle, but has released no information as to what exactly that means.
