Cadillac unveiled the 2014 ELR for the first time in Canada at the Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS) in Toronto. The ELR's advanced drivetrain combines pure electric drive with a small 1.4L 4-cylinder gasoline range extending generator to produce 295 pound-feet of torque (that's 22 pound-feet more than its Chevy Volt sibling). The ELR is not necessarily sportier, but certainly more luxurious.
The sleek luxury coupe delivers on the promise of the Cadillac Converj Concept on which it is based and features industry-leading Extended Range Electric Vehicle (EREV) technology that provides full driving range exceeding 480 km (300 miles). According to Cadillac, most daily commutes will require zero gasoline en route to work or play.
The Converj-inspired exterior also establishes a new, progressive proportion for the Cadillac brand, while the interior introduces a new design theme which aims to define what we can expect to see inside future Cadillac models.
[UPDATE] The ELR has been removed from the 2013 Toronto Auto Show floor, those visiting the show will no longer be able to view it.
