2014 Cadillac ELR 2dr Coupe (gas/electric hybrid DD)
I wanted a luxury electric car and thought Tesla was the way to go UNTIL I saw the CADILLAC ELR.
This car is the way to go if you are looking for a high end electric car that is fun to drive and practical.
The all electric cars concerned me since you HAD to plan a long distance trip around charging.
The ELS, however has a 9 gallon gas tank there to power the generator to make more electricity- how awesome is that!!! (It is NOT a hybrid with a gasoline engine).
My only fault is with the rear seat size - but lets face it, the population that drives an ELR is not running kids to dance lessons - you are way past that! (or have a mini van for the "family car".)
The ride is very good and the controls are within reach for everything or voice activated.
I am not a flashy person, but this car is a real "head turner".
I live in a 'golf community' and you wouldn't believe how the folks on the course actually stop and look.
I have yet to go ANYWHERE when someone has not stopped me and asked me about the car.
The seating is a lot more comfortable than you would think especially when you are over 65 and question your ability to got in and out easily.
There is nothing I don't love about this car!!!
Make people get in line for them and put down a large deposit to "reserve" one just like Tesla does and Cadillac will sell them like hotcakes.
Make a decent commercial for the ELR - the one Cadillac
ran during the Superbowl stunk.
Explain this is NOT a gasoline engine hybrid but an electric car that can also be powered by gasoline - I have yet to use one drop, by the way.
