Luxury car buyers with a heart for the environment have a competitive option in the Cadillac ELR. The company's plug-in hybrid model provides the benefits of an electric vehicle without compromising its high style in the process. The ELR was introduced in 2014 as one of the few luxury plug-in hybrids on the market, and its two-door coupe design and posh interior have made it an appealing choice.
In keeping with Cadillac tradition, there is an extremely long list of standard features, and another long list of optional features to personalize the car to each buyer's specifications. There are a number of good qualities to recommend the ELR, but space and peace are not among them. The backseat and trunk are quite small, and while the electric engine hums along quietly, the gasoline engine is not so considerate. For undecided buyers, the ELR's high price tag can be the deal breaker.
