Even with deep cuts to its price tag, the low volume (read: scarcely-available) coupe has been lambasted by multiple outlets, recalled, and deemed “an overpriced Volt” by a large swath of the automotive press. Even we at GM Authority thought it was a bit too little, too late. We’ll spare you the rest of the gory details.
However, Cadillac is determined to make the vehicle a success and has announced plans to reveal a 2016 ELR Electric Premium Coupe at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show on March 3rd.
Even with the show less than four weeks away Cadillac has remained mum about the new features we can expect on the 2016 ELR. In fact, beyond keeping ELR at its current price, “enhanced performance” is about the only rock-solid detail we know so far. A few unconfirmed reports claim the new ELR might feature a semi-autonomous-drive function but at this point those reports remain just that, unconfirmed. Another rumor is that GM will fit the ELR with next-generation hardware displayed by the 2016 Chevrolet Volt.
It seems we’ll just have to sit tight until Johan De Nysschen addresses the masses at the Cadillac press conference on March 3rd, at 8:15am in Hall 2 of the Palexpo convention center in order to see exactly what Cadillac has in store for its largely-unloved coupe.
