It's official - the ELR is done.
They stopped production of it back in February.

Cadillac's brand president Johan de Nysschen said “I plan to continue admiring it as one of the most beautiful cars on four wheels” de Nysschen told reporters during a media drive for Cadillac’s large CT6 large sedan in Los Angeles. “But we don’t plan further investment” [in the ELR].


Today in an interview, Cadillac Product Communications Manager David Caldwell offered a statement.

“Cadillac ELR production recently concluded. A very small quantity of ELR units remain available at dealers today,” said Caldwell. “The beautifully designed electrified coupe marked an important step in Cadillac’s ongoing expansion. Cadillac remains committed to delivering new technology, including advanced propulsion. Cadillac will soon launch a new Plug-In Hybrid edition of the remarkable new CT6 sedan.

The CT6 PHEV is a faster, larger vehicle, with similar electric range in the mid-30s, and will be imported from China.

It too is projected to sell in limited quantities, though it is expected to be better received than has been the ELR.
