Initial sales of the 2014 Cadillac ELR electrified luxury coupe will begin in January in all major U.S. metropolitan areas. It has a starting price of $75,995, including a $995 destination charge but excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees, says GM.

“The ELR is a unique blend of dramatic design with electric vehicle technology capable of total range in excess of 300 miles,” said Bob Ferguson, senior vice president Global Cadillac. “ELR is also unique in that it will be offered nationwide within a luxury customer experience, with proven benefits and care extending from the shopping process all the way through the ownership experience.”

As with all Cadillac models, the ELR comes standard with Cadillac Shield, a comprehensive suite of owner benefits including Remote Vehicle Diagnostics, a Premium Care Maintenance program and 24/7 roadside assistance. In addition, the ELR also comes with an extended battery and propulsion warranty of eight years or 100,000 miles (and a four-year or 50,000-miles) bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, says GM.

According to GM, the ELR comes equipped with standard advanced technology features such as Cadillac CUE with Navigation, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, the Safety Alert Seat and the Regen on Demand feature (allows the driver to temporarily regenerate energy from the vehicle’s momentum via steering-wheel paddles).

Powering the ELR is a combination of pure electric drive and an efficient, range-extending 1.4L gasoline-powered electric generator, according to GM. ELR is capable of a total driving range in excess of 300 miles. Using only the energy stored in the battery, ELR’s initial range is about 35 highway miles (or 82 MPGe) of electric driving — depending on terrain, driving techniques and ambient temperature, says GM. Official EPA estimates are not yet available.
