January 2014 is the first full month the Cadillac ELR has been available on the market. According to GM, 41 of the vehicles sold last month. Sales were first recorded in December 2013, when 6 ELRs were sold, but in GM's defense, very few of them had yet reached dealer lots as they started shipping on December 17th.

Cadillac has recently announced a $699 per month lease deal that might help sell some more of the vehicles.

I don't remember if the ELR was one of those vehicles that is being sold under the "we won't force the market to accept it" meaning their won't be many price decreases or lease incentives etc..

Now that there is a large inventory of the Cadillac ELR around the country, it will be interesting to see how many will sell this month... and how many of those buyers and owners make their way over to this ELR forum to share their experiences with the world!

Where did you get your ELR inventory numbers?? I just took delivery of my ELR on January 30th. I ordered it in September. As of today my dealer in Sacramento still doesn't have their allocation of two ELRs; they don't expect to see them any time soon.

I read there was ELR inventory somewhere yesterday before posting, but now I can't find it. And I'm starting to wonder if it was even the ELR that the stat was talking about - lol!

Congrats on the ELR! How do you like it? Have you taken it out, or are you keeping it inside because of the cold (where are you located?)?

Cars.com has some ELR inventory showing on it: http://www.cars.com/for-sale/searchresults.action?stkTyp=N&tracktype=newcc&mkId=20052&AmbMkId=20052&AmbMkNm=Cadillac&make=Cadillac&AmbMdNm=ELR&model=ELR&mdId=52107&AmbMdId=52107&rd=100000&zc=92685&searchSource=TRAIL_HEAD&enableSeo=1

Actually, it shows 248 of them?!
ranging in price from $70,746 to $83,645 - perhaps because of options, or because some are priced with the Tax Rebate included/not included.

No indication if it is reserved vehicles, or for-sale/available vehicles though.

I took delivery of my Ashen Gray ELR with Vin 103 on 1/30/14 in Sacramento, CA . It has the adaptive cruise control, luxury package, and the trunk organizer.

I had ordered the graphite metallic, but my window sticker says Ashen Gray. The ELR advisor looked it up and reported that both color labels carry the same paint code...meaning that they are the same color.

I absolutely LOVE this ELR!! I can't say enough good things about it! I was especially pleased with Kuni Cadillac of Sacramento and my salesman, Dave Forget.

Thanks for sharing, glad you're enjoying your ELR so much!

Not sure what Ashen Gray is - there is Radiant Silver Metallic, Black Raven, and Graphite Metallic.
Maybe you did get the color you ordered, just the internal name is Ashen Gray and the public/website name is Graphite Metallic?
