Cadillac ELR production cancelled in February

Mon May 16, 2016 9:59 pm

Official word from Cadillac is that the ELR is done. Finished. Will no longer be made.

Probably partially because de Nysshen (Cadillac's new boss from Audi I think) hates electric vehicles, and partially because the ELR never sold well. It's aleways 20/20 vision in the rear view mirror, but I can't help but wonder if they had marketed this a little better (to outline the luxury and performance upgrades from the Volt) and at a lower price point to compete more with the i3 etc, that it would have done much better.

I guess that means the few ELR plug-in that were built will likely become collector vehicles? Rare, awesome styling, premium brand, rare...

Yeah, I heard. Cadillac ELR never did that well on the market. It was only a matter of time when they called it off.

Cadillac says it will start to add the option of plug-in hybrid to many of its models but feels the all-electric vehicle is a minority buyer

Cadillac feels that the all-electric vehicle is a niche within a niche and has decided it's not going to put much effort into that area of its automobile production

Cadillac admits the electric model was a big disappointment

The 2009 Cadillac converter was a nice looking vehicle
