Cadillac ELR – Electrically Powered
Cadillac displays the electrically powered ELR on their website with a nite, “to be delivered next Winter.”
The technological centerpiece of ELR is an advanced electric drive propulsion system that features an onboard, range-extending, gas-powered generator. It provides instant torque and the smooth, shiftless acceleration of electric drive, while keeping gas power on reserve for longer journeys. In addition, dual-side paddle controls provide regeneration on demand, putting energy back into your battery while slowing you down.
Resting on 20″ wheels, the emotionally charged sculpture is punctuated at every corner with striking LED lights that are as exquisitely etched as any jewel. Up front, a progressive take on the iconic Cadillac grille features a flush design to maximize efficiency. Even the door handles are hidden to give the wind little to hold on to.
The interior of the ELR is a destination unto itself. An open door reveals an exquisite oasis of elegance and information. Finely stitched leather accents, burled-grained wood and available carbon fiber, along with the technology of Cadillac CUE2, provide touches that may even exceed the comforts of home.
