Car and Driver recently wrote an article about the Cadillac, saying it was one of the 25 cars coming in 2014-2017 that is worth waiting for.

Let's hope Cadillac applied its newfound chassis-tuning prowess to the ELR, because aside from the suspension and styling, there's not much else in the ELR's spec sheet promising to make it any more electrifying than the Chevy version.


The ELR uses the same 16.5 kWh battery pack as the Chevy Volt, and the same electric drive system. Since the ELR isn't quite as aerodynamic as the Volt (0.31 coefficient of drag up from 0.29), and a slight increase in weight, the ELR gets 35 electric miles compared to the 38 EPA miles of the Volt.

Along with the Cadillac ELR, and a bunch of exotic cars that no one can afford, was the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST, the 2015 Ford Mustang, 2014 Acura MDX, and the 2014 Chevrolet SS. For a complete list of the 25 vehicles, you can see them all here: http://www.caranddriver.com/features/25 ... 17-feature
