I love Cadillac’s and the Cadillac ELR is no exception. This car is just down right sexy.
I have been toying with the idea of getting a hybrid or electric car for a while. With the rising price of gas and my slight desire to do my part in saving the environment I think it would be a good choice. The problem I have with hybrid cars is that they are all so ugly. I mean, the Toyota Prius, the Nissan Leaf, the Chevrolet Volt? They are all pretty ugly if you ask me. If Tesla would ever release the Tesla Model S I would be in heaven but I think I could settle with the Cadillac ELR.
Back in 2009 Cadillac released an electric concept car called the Converj. It was a seriously sexy coupe that ran on electricity. The converj was only a concept back then but is now going into production and will be named the Cadillac ELR.
One fear of owning an electric car is what happens when the battery gets low. Does your vehicle just stop? Well the new Cadillac ELR will switch to a gas-powered generator if that happens meaning you don’t have to worry about charging the battery on long trips. The new luxury electric car will be based on the same powertrain as the Chevy Volt.
If you want an electric car and are willing to pay extra for the luxury name of a Cadillac then this one might be the one. So what does an luxury electric car cost? GM isn’t saying but Bloomberg reported that GM will price it below the $57,400 Tesla Model S.
