Not Worth the Money
The ELR is Cadillac's attempt to be bold, to be different, to be groundbreaking. It's a svelte two door coupe with lots of road presence, but underneath that exterior lays a Chevrolet Volt chassis and running gear. Is this car really worth the premium over the volt? Now a lot of people don't agree with me about this, but it's a very good looking car. Yes the proportions are a bit off, but the angular design helps to mask that. It looks like nothing else on the road; a sort of Cadillac of the future. The interior again is a work of art. Like the CTS and ATS, it is made of the highest quality materials and put together with the kind of precision and quality that will have the Europeans worried. The back seats are, well, a joke, and the trunk is tiny, but for a small coupe there is reasonable space up front. You feel snug in this car, like the interior is hugging you rather than letting you stretch out. Driven slowly, the ELR is as smooth as silk. The electric motor makes for silent progress, the ride is smooth and the whole car is cosseting. Gain any sort of speed and things fall apart. It takes 9 seconds to get from 0-60, which is too slow. The front end runs out of grip very quickly, the steering has nothing in the name of feel or feedback, and the whole car washes wide like it is on a skid pan. Get it on a track or on winding country lanes and you will find yourself shaking your head in disappointment. So this car only works if you drive most of the time slowly, which kind of defeats the purpose of a coupe. So is this car worth it? No. Let's not beat around the bush here this Chevy Volt in drag costs $65,000. That is twice the price of the original Volt! For what? A nice interior? I'll have an ATS. Electric drive? I'll have a BMW i3. A fun to drive car? I would have a Chevrolet Camaro. This is stretching the concept just too far. Sorry Cadillac.
