Video from General Motors and Synaptic Digital: New Cadillac ELR Electrifies
In Its Debut at the North American International Auto Show
Detroit, Jan. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cadillac today unveiled the 2014
ELR at the North American International Auto Show. The sleek luxury coupe is a
gas-electric hybrid that leverages the Chevrolet Volt's successful extended
range all-electric powertrain.

Using only the energy stored in the battery, the ELR will deliver a
GM-estimated range of about 35 miles of pure electric driving, depending on
terrain, driving techniques and temperature. This means most daily commutes
will require zero gasoline with zero emissions.
Charging the ELR's battery can be done with a 120V electrical outlet or a
dedicated 240V charging station. Once the vehicle is plugged in, owners can
schedule either immediate or delayed charges, even coordinating charging
according to departure time or when electricity rates are lower.
Because the ELR operates so quietly in all-electric mode, a driver-activated
feature sounds a noise to alert pedestrians, particularly those with visual
impairments, in an intersection. The alert was developed in conjunction with
the American Federation of the Blind.
The Cadillac ELR has an aggressive, forward-leaning profile that introduces a
new design evolution that will be carried over into future Cadillacs. ELR
production begins in the United States in late 2013 with sales starting in
early 2014 in North America and expanding to global markets including
