2014 Cadillac ELR news, specifications, and information


The Cadillac ELR luxury coupe dramatic design to the first of industry-leading extended range vehicles (EREV) technology by a luxury brand. Its striking is derived from Cadillac’s Volt-based) 2009 Converj concept car, while its introduces a new design theme will define future

Like the Volt, the ELR (‘Extended Range’) will provide 35 miles of electric-only range its four-cylinder gas engine will to generate electricity for its drive Most daily commutes consume no gas and generate no exhaust yet longer trips will be from battery-electric vehicle range anxiety because its powertrain will enable the long-distance freedom as a conventional

Unlike the Volt, it will Regen on Demand (controlled by wheel paddles) that vary the amount of regenerative — which returns to its battery while slowing the car coast — and selectable modes to optimize efficiency. will also be differences in and tuning to achieve somewhat more performance than by dipping a little deeper the battery pack’s capacity. And later (20-inch) wheels and a wider track and a Watts rear suspension, it will crisper handling.

The Cadillac ELR has an forward-leaning profile that a new, progressive theme and in Cadillac’s design evolution. It over almost unchanged the 2009 Converj concept inspired it. The overall shape is by a prominent, sweeping body accented by 20-inch wheels to the edges of the body.

‘The ELR a new dimension of Art Science, the guiding of Cadillac,’ said Mark Cadillac design director. DNA is innovation, wîth dramatic and design. ELR delivers this in a coupe that stands among major luxury globally.’

Vertical headlamp and elements create Cadillac’s for the ELR, day or night and from the or rear – a brand tradition 1948.

Aerodynamics play a role in the design as airflow is to help the vehicle slip the air wîth minimal drag. A front fascia and grille – active shutters behind the opening – as well as tapered corners, enable air to move around the car to reduce drag. In the sharp edges and a carefully spoiler also manage

An aggressive rake on the windshield and glass help reduce and drag and contribute to ELR’s coefficient of drag.

Driving Experience

The Cadillac dramatic design is matched an engaging driving experience, by the EREV propulsion system for uncompromising performance. With 295 of torque (400 Nm) – about 12 more than the 3.6L V-6 in the SRX – in the city and on the highway, including and passing, is achieved wîth power on demand.

Driving is further enhanced by advanced and damping systems, including Damping Control – which damping every two milliseconds – to optimal vehicle ride over varying road and profiles. The ELR rolls on 20-inch wîth specially engineered tires designed to balance control and cornering capability efficiency.

A solid, stable underpins the ELR, featuring a structure wîth main rails running continuously front to rear. Advanced, steels add strength and conserve Additional contributors to the ELR’s experience include:

•Wide and rear tracks – 62.1 (1,578 mm) in front and 62.4 (1,585 mm) in the rear – along a long wheelbase (106.1 / 2,695 mm) and a low center of gravity

Strut front suspension lightweight forged aluminum for reduced weight and more responsive action

•Dual-pinion, rack-mounted electric §teering system wîth ZF §teering gear designed to excellent feedback while to save fuel

•A semi-independent compound-crank suspension wîth link that incorporates trailing arms to absorb forces, allowing the suspension to be to handle vertical, forward and motions

•Hydraulic ride in the front and rear suspensions

•An regenerative brake system captures energy and sends it to the pack

•Standard chassis systems include antilock traction control and StabiliTrak stability control.

Because the ELR so quietly in all-electric mode, a feature sounds a noise to pedestrians, particularly those visual impairments, in an intersection. The was developed in conjunction wîth the Federation of the Blind.

Cadillac ELR Electric Cars

Propulsion and Technology

The ELR is powered by GM EREV combining pure electric and an efficient, range-extending 1.4L electric generator capable of 154 kW hp) of total system power.

The battery is a T-shaped, 16.5 kWh battery pack, located the centerline of the vehicle, between the and rear wheels for optimal distribution. The 5.5-foot-long (1.6 m), (198 kg) pack supplies to an advanced electric drive capable of 295 lb.-ft. of instant (400 Nm) to propel the vehicle. only the energy stored in the the ELR will deliver a GM-estimated of about 35 miles (56 km) of pure driving, depending on terrain, techniques and temperature.

A driver-selectable mode directs when the ELR its electric generator. This helps optimize the electric-driving allowing owners who mix city and driving to save the battery for city travel, where the ELR EV operates most efficiently.

the ELR’s battery can be done a 120V electrical outlet or a 240V charging station. The can be completely recharged in about 4.5 using a 240V outlet, on the outside temperature.

Once the is plugged in, owners can schedule immediate or delayed charges, coordinating charging according to time or when electricity are lower. Owners also can and monitor the ELR online or wîth smartphone and RemoteLink, a mobile app by OnStar.

The ELR’s battery is covered by an warranty.


The Cadillac ELR be manufactured at General Motors’ Assembly Plant, the world’s automotive manufacturing facility mass-produces extended-range electric for global markets in 21 countries. It is home to Southeast Michigan’s photovoltaic solar array. The feature generates up to 516 kilowatts of – enough to charge 150 ELRs per

ELR to be Built at Detroit-Hamtramck

Plant $35 million investment for extended-range vehicle

Preparations will be under way at the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly to build the Cadillac ELR, a coupe featuring extended-range technology, General Motors America President Mark said Tuesday.

‘The ELR be in a class by itself, further of our commitment to electric vehicles and technology,’ Reuss said in a address at the SAE Convergence Conference in ‘People will instantly it as a Cadillac by its distinctive, signature and true-to-concept exterior design.’

is scheduled to begin in late

The addition of the ELR to Detroit-Hamtramck represents a $35 investment and increases total investment to $561 million December 2009. It is the first car built at the plant since the Cadillac Eldorado.

‘This reflects the corporation’s confidence the highly skilled members of ÚAW 22 can successfully build one of the most advanced vehicles in the world,’ ÚAW Vice President Joe Ashton, who the union’s GM Department. ‘The work and dedication of our members that we can competitively manufacture for the future right here in

The ELR is the production version of Cadillac’s a concept vehicle revealed at the American International Auto in 2009. The ELR will advance the theme of the Converj while an electric propulsion system up of a T-shaped lithium-ion battery, an drive unit, and a four-cylinder It will use electricity as its primary source to drive the car without gasoline or producing tailpipe

When the battery’s energy is the ELR seamlessly switches to a gasoline-powered generator to allow hundreds of driving miles. The lithium-ion will be built at GM’s Battery Assembly plant in Mich.

Detroit-Hamtramck is the only automotive manufacturing plant mass produces extended-range vehicles. The plant is home to the Volt, Opel Ampera, and Volt extended-range electric Extended-range electric vehicles are to 21 countries from the plant.

When the all-new Cadillac ELR range luxury coupe in dealerships this winter, it be the first electric vehicle wîth all-LED exterior

First shown at this North American International Show, the ELR’s front LED are designed to double as daytime lights. The design of the main extend from the ELR’s fascia up into the fenders to a sleek and dramatic appearance.

The vertical tail lights pay to classic Cadillac style and true to the Converj concept, on the ELR is based.

‘LED lights much longer and use less than traditional halogen used in most vehicles,’ Martin Davis, exterior designer. ‘Beyond the beautiful interpretation, using LED lights wîth the ELR’s environmentally character.’
