The Cadillac ELR has been officially presented to the public in a world premiere during the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
The brand new 2014 Cadillac ELR has been inspired by the Converj Concept, unveiled back in 2009, and the model has received a 2+2 layout, a luxurious cabin with leather upholstery, with wood inserts and chrome accents, an 8-inch configurable instrument and driver info display, with LED accent lighting, with a HiPer Strut front suspension, electric power steering with ZF steering gear and much more, which will definitely be appreciated by its future customers.
The 2014 Cadillac ELR has a 16.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which is weighing 198 kg (435 lbs). Charging it from a 240V outlet takes 4.5 hours and when using a 120V outlet, the battery will be filled in 12 hours. A range extender in the shape of a 1.4 liter gasoline unit will allow the powertrain to develop a total output of 207 HP (154 kW) and 400 Nm of torque (295 lb-ft). There is no word on the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration but the top speed of the ELR stands at 161 km/h (100 mph).
