Pros

Slick styling; plugin-hybrid drivetrain; luxurious interior; 300-mile range


Model Highlights

Give Cadillac credit, upon seeing the ELR the first thing that comes to mind is not its high efficiency powertrain. The car is a looker, with low slung angular styling that is very aggressive. On looks alone it certainly seems like a worthy competitor to other big luxury coupes. But of course, the ELR is much more than just a pretty face.

The ELR has the powertrain similar to the Chevrolet's Volt, what GM calls an "extended range electric." This means that the car can be charged at home and then driven roughly 35 miles while using no gasoline whatsoever. Should owners exceed that range, a 1.4L gasoline engine starts up, seamlessly powering the electric motors that move the front wheels. Cadillac claims a maximum total range of about 300 miles. It is an interesting system that allows drivers to rarely put fuel in the car provided they only use it about town. However, it leaves the car flexible enough to serve as transportation on long road trips when the need arises. With 207 horsepower available and an extremely stout, 295 foot pounds of torque on tap, the ELR gets down the road with considerably more authority than any of the other so-called hybrid cars sold in the U.S.

Styling and trick drivetrain aside, the ELR must also serve as an effective luxury car, and that means plenty of goodies and interior amenities. The interior of the car is swathed in leather and carbon fiber, feeling expensive and stylish. There are two small seats in the back for children or the occasional adult, but most ELRs will spend much of their time with only one or two occupants. Those occupants will benefit from Cadillac's second generation CUE in car infotainment system, which makes Bluetooth pairing, navigation and stereo operation a breeze. The system has plenty of other trick features as well, including a proximity sensor, haptic feedback, multitouch controls and speech recognition.

Other stand out features on the ELR include a Bose 10-channel stereo with noise cancellation technology, electronically controlled suspension capable of adjusting dampening rates continuously and on the fly, 20-inch wheels, LED headlamps, programmable charging schedules, voice recognition and an 8-inch configurable screen.

Safety has not been neglected and the ELR comes with a safety alert seat, as well as forward collision and a lane departure warning system. Optional safety enhancements include a blind spot warning system, rear cross traffic alert and adaptive cruise control. Anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control are also standard.


Model News

The Cadillac ELR is a brand-new car for 2014. It's a 2-door coupe that manages to be both fun to drive and good for the environment at the same time. Featuring plugin-hybrid technology, the ELR should boast excellent fuel economy.


Value Writeup

The Cadillac ELR is a luxury sports coupe starting at about $75,000. It competes with other luxury coupes from the likes of BMW, Mercedes and Audi. Of course, most of its competitors make due with a standard gasoline engine, with the one exception being the Tesla Model S. However the Cadillac should have a better range than the equivalently price Tesla, since the ELR has a built in gasoline engine that is capable of recharging the electric batteries on the go. The Cadillac ELR's value is further enhanced by tax rebates associated with owning alternative fuel vehicles.

Component
SEATS

Potential Number of Units Affected
124,007

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Buick Encore and Cadillac ATS; 2014 Cadillac CTS, ELR, Chevrolet Caprice and SS vehicles; and 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Trucks. Due to an incomplete weld on the seat hook bracket assembly, the front seats in the affected vehicles may not stay secured in place during a high load condition such as a crash.

Consequence
A seat that does not stay secured increases the risk of occupant injury in a vehicle crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat hook bracket assembly weld and replace the lower seat track, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on August 15, 2014. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), and 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 14340.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Component
ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

Potential Number of Units Affected
656

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014 Cadillac ELR vehicles not equipped with adaptive cruise control and manufactured September 26, 2013, through February 14, 2014, and equipped without adaptive cruise control. In these vehicles, the electronic stability control (ESC) system software may inhibit certain ESC diagnostics, preventing the system from alerting the driver that the ESC system is partially or fully disabled. As such, these vehicles fail to conform with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 126, "Electronic Stability Control Systems."

Consequence
If the driver is not alerted to an ESC malfunction they may continue driving with a disabled ESC system which may result in loss of directional control, increasing the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will recalibrate the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM), free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on May 16, 2014. Owners may contact Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14087.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
