Cadillac ELR News

  • 2016 Cadillac ELR

    Cadillac’s ELR has bowed out of production a little more than two years after reaching showrooms. The last ELR rolled off the line at General Motors Company’s [NYSE:GM] Detroit-Hamtramck plant in February, a Cadillac spokesman confirmed to HybridCars. It was also in February that Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen said there were no plans for further investment in the ELR, so the news doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Total sales of the model were a little under 2,700 units. Part of the reason for the poor sales was the car’s exorbitant price tag. Cadillac...

    Cadillac Unlikely To Renew ELR

    Cadillac’s Converj concept, unveiled in early 2009 during the height of the global financial crisis, was meant to be a way of sexing up the extended-range electric car technology offered in the much more mundane Chevrolet Volt, whose platform it borrowed. The concept had an extreme...

    The Cadillac ELR is, to our eyes, a very good-looking car. It’s not quite beautiful, but its proportions, details, and overall theme just work. Its performance and gas mileage both come up just a touch short, but there are few cars that offer the same combination of style and economy on the...

  • Frame from 2014 Cadillac ELR video on YouTube, with actor Neil McDonough

    Cadillac's last advert for its ELR range-extended electric coupe was... polarizing, to put it mildly. Called "Poolside", its lead character is either loved or hated depending on what kind of American you see yourself as. Actor Neil McDonough portrayed a man who'd probably sell his own mother if it meant getting the life, job and car he wanted, and left us wondering whether actual ELR buyers would want to associate with such a character.

  • The interior of the upcoming Cadillac ELR

    The upcoming Cadillac ELR extended-range electric coupe will be a halo car in more ways than one for GM’s premium brand. Its primary mission is to carry the Voltec powertrain torch into an entirely new segment than the existing Chevrolet Volt, but doing so requires a new level of interior craftsmanship. As ELR interior design manager Keith Fisher explains, many of the elements created for the interior of the ELR will carry over to future Cadillac models. Expect to see the universal deployment of the CUE system (already in ATS and XTS models), as well as a step up in interior materials...
