According to Cadillac, the ELR, Cadillacâ€™s first electric vehicle, which was revealed several years ago at the Detroit Motor Show, will officially be going into production. DeVoe Cadillac is excited for its arrival sometime in 2014.
Online PR News – 30-August-2012 – Naples, FL – In 2009, Cadillac revealed a new concept vehicle at the Detroit Motor Show called the ELR. However, no longer is the ELR a concept vehicle as Cadillac recently announced that they will soon begin production on this new model. This is a ground-breaking step for Cadillac as the ELR will be the luxury car brands first electric vehicle.
At this point in time, Cadillac has not released too much information on the new electric vehicle, but from the few articles that have been released, it is clear that the ELR stays true to Cadillacâ€™s core values. In other words, the ELR is â€śsetting the standardâ€ť for electric vehicles when it comes to design, technology, and innovation.
The official Cadillac website offers a few words on the design of the ELR: â€śIts sleek profile and sharp lines allow ELR to slip through the air with little resistance. Signature Cadillac Styling cues are also evident in the dramatic grille, jewel-like headlamps and vertical LED taillights.â€ť
As far as technology goes, the ELR will be equipped with an electric propulsion system featuring a lithium-ion battery, and electric drive unit, and a four-cylinder gas-powered electric generator. Electricity is its primary source of energy, with the range-extending generator providing power when the battery is depleted (very similar to the Chevrolet Volt).
Though no release date has been given yet, Cadillac has said that the ELR will be out sometime on in the year 2014.
