Interior

While still sophisticated, the interior has a sporty feel in comparison to other cars on this list. The ELR is filled with high-quality materials (ranging all the way from semi-aniline leather to real carbon fiber) and also has a detailed, thoughtful center stack. On a less positive note, Cadillac’s Cue infotainment system and hectic selection panel may be overly complex for some users. The ELR’s main drawback is the minimal room for passengers in the backseat.

Technology

The ELR comes souped up with a variety of technology features. From dual-zone climate control, keyless access and start, and a backup camera, the ELR also features a Bose 10-speaker audio system, touch-screen navigation with advanced voice recognition, plus front and rear proximity sensors. Regen on Demand is another feature of the ELR, allowing the driver to supplement the brakes by converting rolling momentum into stored energy.  

Engine

This model is powered by a 1.4-liter gasoline-powered generator, 16.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, and also has a 154 kW electric motor. The ELR goes from 0-60 in about eight seconds, which isn’t bad for a hybrid model like this. Charging the battery takes roughly five hours using a 240V charger. Though it can take anywhere from 12.5-18 hours using a normal household outlet. The ELR’s efficiency and power can be optimized for multiple driving settings: Tour (normal), Sport, Mountain, and Hold (this stores remaining energy in the battery for later).
