2014 Cadillac ELR Starts at $75,000
For customers that are eligible for an EV tax credit, the starting price could be as low as 67,500, not including destination, the company added. That's about double that the popular Chevrolet Volt and more expensive than the Tesla Model S, which starts at $62,400 including the $7,500 tax credit.
Fitted with GM's LED headlamps and taillights, the Cadillac ELR features Cadillac Shield with Remote Vehicle Diagnostics, Premium Care Maintenance program and 24/7 roadside assistance and benefits from an extended battery and propulsion warranty of eight years of 100,000 miles, and a four-year or 50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty.
Power is provided by a 16.5 kWh lithium-ion battery which powers an electric motor that delivers 207 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque, while a 1.4-liter petrol engine is always ready to recharge it. The vehicle can travel more than 300 miles in the combined configuration and 35 miles on electricity alone.
“The ELR is a unique blend of dramatic design with electric vehicle technology capable of total range in excess of 300 miles,” said Bob Ferguson, senior vice president of Global Cadillac. “ELR is also unique in that it will be offered nationwide within a luxury customer experience, with proven benefits and care extending from the shopping process all the way through the ownership experience.”
