To this day, we believe that the Cadillac ELR should have launched alongside, if not before, the Chevrolet Volt. In retrospect, Cadillac would have beaten Tesla to the punch with its own high-end plug-in coupe, and would feel more cutting-edge and futuristic than now. Secondly, with a starting price of $75,000, plus a $995 destination charge, the Cadillac ELR stands at a much higher chance of actually being a profitable vehicle.
That’s right, the 2014 Cadillac ELR will start at $75,000, more than double that of the current Chevrolet Volt MSRP. Buyers may be eligible for a tax credit from $0 to $7,500 depending on individual tax liability. Net pricing after tax credits could be as low as $68,495, including $995 destination.
As a bonus, prospective customers and buyers of the ELR will receive their own ELR Concierge Representative, who will assist costumers on subjects like battery care, home charging, service scheduling, news and updates by calling 855-4-CAD-ELR (855-422-3357).
The 2014 Cadillac ELR also introduces the Regen on Demand feature, along with featuring all-LED exterior lighting, CUE, and some seriously sexy sheetmetal.
