Consumer Reports raves about the looks of the $75,995 Cadillac ELR. However, when it comes to its cost, they might rather give the thumbs up to the Tesla Model S at $69,900.
But doesn't that Cadillac ELR look absolutely brilliant casting its presence upon the background of palm trees and street lights outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art? I think so too, and so do a lot of other people. The question here is not whether or not the electric hybrid Caddy is good, but rather if it is good enough to overturn its competition, which is mainly the Tesla S.
According to Tom Mutchler of Consumer Reports, the design of the Cadillac ELR is beautiful. It comes with a sleek shape, a set of 20-inch wheels, LED headlights, and all the art & science design cues that make a Cadillac a Cadillac. Continuous damping control systems makes the ELR ride comfortably, and finally, the ELR boasts the green stamp of approval (well, sort of). The ELR only gets about 37 miles of electric power before it needs to fall back on its 4-cylinder gasoline generator. Not that great, but better than its older brothers.
Mutchler had a few other things to say about the Cadillac ELR, so check out the video below to see why the Tesla S might still be the king of the luxury electric cars:
