This Concept Has Tons Of Karma

2014 Cadillac ELR

Cadillac continues to make great vehicles that are edgy and exhilarating and have a fun factor that the brand lacked for much of the last 30 years. It was the CTS that really brought Caddy to the forefront of American luxury and now they upped the ante with the ATS, a smaller sibling to the CTS and an extension of the Art and Science design them.

2014 Cadillac ELRTo make things sweeter, Caddy introduced the ELR at the 2013 North American International Auto Show.

Inside, ELR is all luxury and leathery goodness, with a splash of coddling.

2014 Cadillac ELR

ELR is an all-electric luxury sports coupe with a killer stance and chiseled good looks that is powered by an “electric drive unit” which has 207 total horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque from a standing start.

What is unique about the ELR’s drivetrain is its hybrid nature. ELR is the first vehicle from a major manufacturer with an electric motor and battery pack and a gasoline generator instead of a small gasoline engine. Think of it like a diesel locomotive.

Since it’s a concept, we haven’t had a drive in the ELR, but if it drives like it looks it should be as nice as the CTS-V.
