2016 Cadillac ELR What's new for 2016? 
2016 Cadillac ELR

After debuting as a 2014 model very late in the production year, the ELR skipped a model year and returns for 2016 with multiple improvements and a $10,000 price cut. The 2016 ELR has roughly 25 percent more power, enhanced handling, Apple CarPlay compatibility and an optional performance package.

About Cadillac ELR

After a less-than-enthusiastic reception, the Cadillac ELR plug-in extended-range coupe returns for 2016 with a raft of improvements and a roughly $10,000 price cut. While its sophisticated gas-electric powertrain is based on the far less expensive Chevrolet Volt, the ELR has been modified for better performance and a slight increase in electric driving range to 39 miles. Thanks to its onboard gasoline engine that acts as a generator when battery power is depleted, total range is 330 miles. The upshot of this setup is you don't have to find an electrical outlet when you run out of juice. That's the ELR's main advantage over the far roomier Tesla Model S, but some buyers may still balk at this 4-passenger Cadillac's nearly $66,000 starting price.

"I have now owned this ELR for 6 months, and I still say the same things about it. It is the best looking car on the highway, gets fabulous gas mileage, ride is great, fit and finish is wonderful, and comparing the Tesla Model S, the Cadillac comes with loads of standard equipment. the Tesla is somewhat bigger, is quite a bit faster, if you want speed, but it will cost in the range of $30,000 to $35,000 more than the Cadillac with the same options that you have to pay extra for with the Tesla. The Tesla is a fine car, just overpriced for what you get. Cadillac is coming out with a CT6, in 2016 that will be very comparable the the Tesla, but it will have a PHEV, and two gasoline models in the lineup. The PHEV is supposed to have more range by far than the ELR, and much more power. Thwe two gas models will be powered by a twin turbo 6 cyl with 450 HP, and a V8 with supercharger at about 700 HP. that will blow your whiskers back ;). I filled the gas tant on my ELR the other day, and in the last 1700 miles, I used 0.913 gal of liquid gold. Not too shabby. Only 1862 MPG since July. I have a "lifetime mileage" on the computer of 202 MPG. On gas only mode, the Cad gets about 39-40 MPG Man do I love that Caddy. I also own a 2014 Chevy Volt, which my wife drives daily, and she goes over the limit of 40 miles all of the time, and only averages 83 "lifetime MPG" on the computer. still not bad. I highly recommend both cars to anyone who drives a lot of under 40 mile trips. The volt gets over 46 MPG on gasoline alone, on long trips. sure is fun to drive by gas stations, watching everyone filling the "gas hogs" :)"

"I traded my Mercedes S600 v12 and let me tell you I really love driving this car! It really brings driving to a new level. It is so quiet and the seats are real comfortable. This car is like sitting in a airplane cockpit! You really have to take a test drive in a ELR to appreciate what all of us are really saying here. A lot of people say I would rather have a Tesla S for the money but they are totally two different type of cars. No range anxiety with the ELR, just get in and drive. If your commute under 40 miles a day you will never use any gas. People talk about the car should be faster, apparently they never drove a ELR! This car is fast enough, it goes! Driving regular or conservative is part of the fun owning a electric car! If I wanted a super fast car with two seats I would have bought a new corvette. Well thats my take for now!"

"Been to the dealer one time to rotate tires.Lifetime mpg is 192mpg! Only negative is to be careful parking and don't pull all the way forward. Air skirt is flexible in the front,but why take a chance on damaging it.Look forward to getting a 2017 Cadillac ELR!"
