There is no doubt the new Cadillac ELR looks fantastic. From any angle, in any color.
And after sitting in one, I can say the interior is as great as the exterior.
Just like the Chevrolet Volt, it doesn’t offer a sunroof.
They also got rid of the hatchback. So even though it looks like one, is has one of the tiniest trunk openings I have ever seen.
The tan interior (pictured here) is the same hue as the one offered in the Volt since last year. More like a beige light brown.
(Not as nice as the tan/black combo the Volt used to offer.)
And the huge flaw is of course the $75 000 price tag.
The fantastic design doesn’t cost more to make. The great interior is is not better than the new CTS. Or even the ATS.
And underneath, it is really the same as the $34 000 Volt. (It still uses the “not so quiet 1.4 Liter engine” as generator)
We are talking about a huge $41 000 premium for a better interior and design!
The pricing of this car has to be the weirdest business decision I have heard in years. About any product.
For whatever reason, GM has decided to kill this amazing looking car before it even comes out…
