Cadillac ELR

For 2016, Cadillac has given the ELR hybrid coupe a total overhaul, adding more power, better handling, more standard tech on the inside, and most notable of all, a $10,000 lower price tag. In terms of sales, the ELR was once dead in the water, but it appears as though Cadillac is addressing the problem areas with the old ELR and refreshing the car as a whole. Base MSRP $75,000


The 2016 Cadillac ELR remains as stunningly good looking as its predecessor, with sharp lines and a well-managed exterior that seems to arch forward, stating its presence. Standing back a bit, the only noticeable change outside the car is the front grille, having lost the vertical slats that could be found on the old model and more squared-off crest without the surrounding circle. Chrome details surround the car along the window trim. While the front end is sharp and pointed, the taillight and headlight shapes tie everything together.


The ELR has been considered since its debut one of the industry’s most-connected vehicles, offering new and enhanced features designed to extend a person’s technologies seamlessly to the car. Cadillac has stood strong to that statement with the newest iteration of the ELR, beginning with OnStar and a 4G LTE built-in Wi-Fi hotspot as standard equipment. Having the ability to support up to seven devices at once, the wireless web connection within the car is active whenever the ELR is turned on. This system comes with a free three-month/three-gigabyte data trial. Various Driver Assistance features come standard including blind-zone alert and Intellibeam (automatic high-low) headlights. Handcrafted upholstery and power assisted everything will keep everyone comfortable while on a drive.


Cadillac has increased the performance starting with a software upgrade, increasing the power, tuning the acceleration, and improving the overall-electric range. Sport Mode has been modified, combining the electric motor and ICE for maximum output. When this mode is activated, the electric drive unit is capable of instantly delivering 373 lb-ft of torque. Reaching 60 mph will only take around 6.4 seconds and has a top speed of 106 mph.
