The Cadillac ELR aims to redefine what an electric driving experience should feel like, from its high-end interior, to its sophisticated suspension setup that promises impressive driving dynamics. And as we learn more about the ELR, we realize that simply calling it a rebadged Chevy Volt makes little sense.
Take the suspension system, for example. Hugely different from that seen in the Volt, thanks to a HiPer Strut suspension system up front, which quells torque steer (the ELR has more torque than the Volt) and provides greater cornering ability. Meanwhile,t he rear compound crank with Watt’s link suspension in the rear also promises improved lateral grip, while a premium ZF electric power steering system and ZF-Sachs continuous damping control aim to provide spot-on feedback. The video below demonstrates more.
