There was a program to give high speed chargers to purchasers of ELRs. I saw all of the announcements of that program, but not an end. I bought a Cadillac ELR in October but the dealer knew nothing about the program. Does it still exist? Obviously I would like to have one to cut the time of charging the car. Thanks

They will refer you to Bosch. Register: http://www.bosch.com. 1 877 805 3873 (ext. 7276) They will send a certified installer to provide an estimate.

The program ended in November, but since you bought the car in October I would hope that GM/Cadillac will work something out. Try contacting the “ELR Concierge at 855-463-6357”. Good luck.

I just spoke with Concierge and kstegath is correct. Also, I mentioned that my EV is only 36 with my Level II whereas I achieved 42 with Level I. Apparently weather is making the difference. Also, he suggested leaving the charger and doing autostart because the climate control has a draw that can be absorbed by the charger.
