Cadillac ELR (2014)

CAR GARAGE | Cadillac ELR (2014) | The 2014 Cadillac ELR will naturally inherit the Volt's basic architecture, the which is derived from the Delta 2 global platform hosts a variety of That GM vehicles Including the conventional Chevrolet Cruze compact cars and Buick Verano . GM's "magnetic ride" shock absorbers auto-adjust should be available, Perhaps as standard. They're not Offered on the Volt, but have de intriguer for many Become a premium-brand cars. Brakes will involve four-wheel discs with ABS and GM's StabiliTrak anti skid system integrated with traction control.

You can get an idea of what the 2014 Cadillac ELR will be like to live with by checking our road test and related Volt Car Featured Articles. To recap, GM calls these models "extended-range electric vehicles" (E-REVS) Because Their Voltec drive system comprises two power-teams Effectively: an all-electric one (battery and motors) That run the car for the first 40 or so miles after a full plug-in recharge, and a gas-powered hybrid drive (with gas engine and fuel tank) That automatically takes over after That to give about another 300 miles of range. A 2011-2012 Volt can be fully recharged in about 10 hours on a normal 120-volt household current, or four hours with a special 240-volt charging station. EPA city / highway mileage ratings are 35/40 mpg for the gasoline engine and 95/90 'equivalent mpg' for pure-electric driving. Motor Trend reports the Volt runs 0-60 mph in 9.0 seconds, acceleration typical of conventional compact cars. The ELR Likely would get the new system as a running change.

Barring any surprises, the 2014 Cadillac ELR should follow the Converj Concept in being an edgy, wedge coupe with a marked cab-forward stance and dimensions close to Those of an Audi A5. Though far sexier-looking than the 4-door hatchback Volt, the Caddy should also feature a closed-off grille to minimize the aerodynamic drag That eats into electric-mode driving range. Also like the Volt, the ELR will have four individual seats. Several other features concept Could also migrate to the 2014 Cadillac ELR, if only Because they're doable, not hugely expensive, and are Appropriate for a premium-brand high-tech flagship.  Several factors are behind GM's decision to market the Converj Concept 2014 Cadillac as the ELR. GM said early on that it expected to lose money on the first-generation Chevrolet Volt , but was betting Ultimately That consumers would find the E-REV concept superior to conventional hybrid and pure-electric drive systems.

A third motivation for the 2014 Cadillac ELR is to cement Cadillac's green image against premium imported brands. Trouble is, that still will not be enough volume to the make the Volt profitable, Hence Ackerson's support for the 2014 Cadillac Likely ELR and other, higher-priced models Voltec That would generate fatter profit margins per-unit, Thus Spake Helping GM to recoup more of its huge investment Volt That much Sooner. As Voeckler notes, "If some Voltec cars Could be sold for $ 45,000 but not, say, $ 60,000, that Might enable GM to make money on its first generation of Voltec cars.
