2016 Cadillac ELR Review

The 2016 Cadillac ELR is an upscale midsize car that has a significantly lower base price, marginally more power and new standard connectivity and driver-assistance features this year.

The 2016 Cadillac ELR is powered by two electric motors and a 1.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine that together produce 233 horsepower, 16 more than the outgoing model. A continuously variable automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. Cadillac expects the 2016 ELR to have an all-electric driving range of 39 miles (up from 37 in the previous model) and return 85 mpg-equivalent combined city/highway. The gasoline engine serves as a generator for the electric motors, allowing the ELR to travel up to 330 miles on battery and gas power, according to Cadillac. Using only gasoline power, the ELR is projected to earn 31 mpg combined. Charging the 2016 ELR fully takes five hours with a 240-volt charging station and 13-18.5 hours with a standard 120-volt outlet. The ELR’s steering and suspension systems have been updated this year for improved handling, Cadillac says.

The four-seat 2016 Cadillac ELR comes standard with rear cross traffic alert, side blind zone alert and a new OnStar 4G LTE system with a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot. Other standard features include power-adjustable heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, Bluetooth, satellite radio, navigation, three USB ports, Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system, a rearview camera, front collision warning, lane departure warning and front and rear parking sensors. Leather upholstery, adaptive cruise control and a collision preparation system with automatic braking are available. The 2016 Cadillac ELR starts at $65,995, which is over $9,000 less than the outgoing model’s base price. A $7,500 federal tax credit for electric vehicles further reduces the ELR’s cost to $58,495.
