Cadillac has recently announced the arrival at dealerships of the 2014 ELR, ahead of the car’s January on-sale date.

The 2014 Cadillac ELR has arrived at the company’s dealerships as the model in question will go on sale in January. The announcement has been made recently by the North American based automaker, which will offer the ELR from 75,995 USD, including the 995 USD destination charge, but without the government rebates, which will drop another 7,500 USD from its price. The ELR is 41,000 USD more expensive than the Volt and according to the guys at Consumer Reports, you’re better off with a Tesla Model S instead.

Power to the 2014 Cadillac ELR is being provided by a 16.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, sending its juice to the electric motor, which is generating a total output of 207 HP (154 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. The whole system is backed up by a generator, in the shape of a 1.4 liter petrol unit. Cadillac says that the ELR can travel on electricity alone for more than 35 miles while the total driving range stands at approximately 300 miles. Standard features found on the car include the LDW, LED headlights and taillights, Forward Collision Alert, Safety Alert Seat and some other tweaks.
