The electric drive system elicits an immediate response. Press down on the accelerator when the vehicle is at a standstill, and you’re greeted with instant torque and the smooth, shiftless acceleration of electric drive.
The ELR is first and foremost an advanced luxury coupe, but it also has to perform at the highest level. Continuous Damping Control adjusts damping at all four corners every two milliseconds to maintain optimal vehicle ride control over varying road surfaces.
Dual-side paddle controls located behind the steering wheel provide regeneration on demand, putting energy back into your battery while simultaneously slowing you down. This advanced technology is something you can only truly appreciate when you experience it from behind the wheel—especially in slow-and-go traffic where exclusive Regen on Demand™ gives you the comfort of one-pedal driving.
You decide the best time to charge. Using the multi-touch CUE or the available OnStar® RemoteLink® mobile app, you can customize your charging mode as well as the charging level. You can even program the charge based on off-peak rates or your next planned departure.
Every detail was considered in the quest for efficiency. Recessed, nearly invisible door handles look dramatic and provide the ELR profile with unbroken lines, giving the wind little to hold on to. Adding to the advanced thinking, touching a small pad located on the inside of the door handle is all that is necessary to enter.
ELR slices through the air with little resistance. The flush front fascia seamlessly incorporates the modern take on the iconic Cadillac grille while simultaneously aiding the vehicle’s aerodynamics.
The art of craftsmanship lives and breathes within the ELR luxury coupe, where five complementary materials were specifically chosen to provide a feeling of balance and harmony: Burl Grain Olive Ash or Laurel wood, genuine carbon fiber, sueded microfiber, finely stitched premium leather seating surfaces and satin chrome accents. The dramatic layering of textures creates a quiet, luxurious sanctuary with undeniable style.
As beautiful as it is advanced. The brilliant CUE2—Cadillac User Experience—system with navigation3 lets you access your contacts, music and information with just the touch, flick or swipe of the screen. In fact, CUE comes to life when it senses your hand is near and provides feedback vibrations to let you know it is responding to your command.
A sleek line of LED lights softly illuminates the luxurious details of the interior cabin.
Four driver-selectable instrument panel display modes provide unique information to enhance the driving experience. Choose from Classic, Classic Enhanced, Modern and Modern Enhanced.
Available Side Blind Zone Alert uses radar that sweeps the side of the ELR. If a vehicle enters your blind spot, an icon on the outside rearview mirror warns you of its presence. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert functions in much the same way, except the sensors sweep the area behind and to the sides of the vehicle, warning you of oncoming vehicles. This available safety feature provides added confidence when backing out of parking spots.
Available, full-speed Adaptive Cruise Control uses information from the car’s front radar and other sensors to maintain a selected following distance to the vehicle ahead. Included with Adaptive Cruise Control are Automatic Collision Preparation and Intelligent Brake Assist. These features not only provide a progression of alerts, but also will apply brake pressure, bringing the vehicle to a complete stop, if necessary, to help avoid a collision.
