I'm not all that good with math, but if Cadillac continues on their path of selling 100 ELR plug-in cars per month—it would add up to maybe 1100 cars. Out of the 3000 cars they were hoping to sell, I'd say they are in a bit of a pickle.
Wow, look at all the fun that Cadillac ELR is having at that amusement part in the above photo. However, I guarantee that General Motors is not throwing it any picnics at this moment. In fact, would assume they would like to sweep last months sales disclosures under the carpet.
The Cadillac ELR is all alone in the luxury plug-in segment, yet nobody seems to care. Consumer Reports gave it a pretty good rating. However, they also gave the impression that at the end of the day, they would probably just assume buy the sleeker Tesla S and call it a day.
With a battery capability of just around 35 miles before it needs to fall back on its 4-cylinder engine, I'd say that this luxury hybrid may need to go back into the oven for a few more months. When it returns, hopefully it will either have a more competitive price than $75,995, or more battery longevity so at least you know you're getting your money's worth.
