2014 Cadillac ELR

2014 Cadillac ELR looks almost similar to the Converj concept that inspired it and introduces a new “progressive theme and proportion in Cadillac’s design evolution.” The model features Cadillac’s signature vertical headlights and vertical LED taillights and also the well-known trapezoid grille.

Next to making the ELR as elegant as possible, Cadillac also focused on delivering the best aerodynamics so the vehicle could “slip through the air with minimal drag.” As a result the 2014 Cadillac ELR is being equipped with a flush front fascia and grille with active shutters behind the grille opening, tapered fascia corners, sharp edges at the rear and a carefully designed spoiler. ELR also installed an aggressive rake on the windshield and back glass and obtained an impressive 0.305 coefficient of drag.

The 2014 ELR will feature an electric drive unit, powered by a T-shaped lithium-ion battery pack. In addition, the ELR will feature a four-cylinder electric generator that delivers a total of 207 horsepower. Not an engine, folks, a generator to provide power to the drive unit, much like the Volt.

Once the batteries become depleted, the generator kicks in to provide power to the electric drive unit, much like how an engine in gas cars spins the alternator to create current. Using only the energy stored in the battery, the ELR will deliver a GM-estimated range of about 35 miles of pure electric driving, depending on terrain, driving techniques and temperature.

2014 Cadillac ELR offers a classic 2+2 layout and has been designed to offer the driver the best driving experience. The interior is trimmed in a combination of leather and authentic chrome and wood accents, while a carbon fiber trim is available as an option. The steering wheel is covered in leather and sueded microfiber, with the same material being used for the headliner.

As with all the other models launched in the past year, the new ELR is being offered with Cadillac CUE with Navigation featuring a large eight-inch, full-color capacitive-touch screen in the center of the instrument panel. It also includes a touch screen with gesture recognition and offers details on driving efficiency, energy usage, charging options and more.
