This service can provide additional information on battery care, home charging, service scheduling, and news and updates by calling 1-855-INFO-ELR (1-855-463-6357).
If we got your attention, you have to know that the 2014 Saks Fifth Avenue Special Edition ELR costs $89,500, which includes a $995 destination charge. First deliveries are expected to start in March 2014.
The ELR has a forceful, front-leaning silhouette that presents an all-new, advanced motif and dimension in Cadillac's evolution of design. It continuous almost untouched from the 2009 Converj concept that inspired it. The overall form is fortified by a dominant, swept body outline emphasised by 20” wheels thrusted to the body edges.
The ELR epitomises a new aspect of Art & Science, Cadillac’s guiding values. Cadillac's genetics are innovative, with vivid and stimulating design. The ELR produces this in a luxury coupe that is set apart from the major global luxury nameplates.
Upright headlight and taillight components produce the ELR Cadillac's signature, during the day or at night and from the front or the rear, a company tradition since 1948.
Aerodynamics was crucial in designing it as airflow management helps the automobile glide through the air with negligible drag. A flushed front fascia and grille, with dynamic shutters behind the openings of the grille, as well as narrowed fascia corners, allow air to flow effortlessly around the vehicle, reducing drag. At the back, hard edges and a delicately designed spoiler also control the airflow. A pronounced rake at the windscreen and back glass assist in reducing turbulence and drag and add to the ELR's 0.305 drag coefficient.
Added exterior details include:
· Door handles positioned in niches behind the doors
· The charge port located on the driver's side front fender
· Side mirror lights that pulse green as the battery charges and that goes out when fully charged.
Body colours include Black Raven, Radiant Silver Metallic, Graphite Metallic, and Crystal Red.
