2016 CADILLAC ELR: The sleek 2016 Cadillac ELR electric vehicle luxury coupe is the first application of an extended-range electric vehicle technology by a full-line luxury automotive brand. True engineering marvels power the ELR, combining pure electric drive and an efficient, range-extending 1.4L gasoline-powered electric generator capable of 207-horsepower of total system power. Using only the energy stored in the battery, the ELR delivers a range of about 35 miles of pure electric driving. More responsive brakes also contribute greater performance, while retuned chassis and steering combine for better handling. Perform numbers include 0-to-60-mph in 6.4-sec. and a top speed of 130-mph. The Cadillac ELR has an aggressive, forward-leaning profile that introduces a new, progressive theme and proportion in Cadillac's design evolution. The overall shape is reinforced by a prominent, sweeping body line accented by 20-inch wheels pushed to the edges of the body. Making the ELR a standout are the light-emitting diode (LED) headlamps, daytime running lamps and taillamps, as well as signature front and rear lighting elements. Inside, the ELR's classic 2+2 layout is driver-focused and fitted with a leather-trimmed cockpit that blends authentic chrome and wood accents - and available carbon fiber trim - as well as a suede microfiber headliner and steering wheel covered in leather and suede microfiber. The premium Bose 10-channel audio system with active noise cancelation is standard equipment. Chicago Auto Show History: The ELR design is almost unchanged from the Cadillac Converj concept that was a hit at the '09 Chicago show.
