The slow selling Cadillac ELR will not be replaced when it is time for a new model in 2018. It may even be withdrawn from the market before then.

GM’s cynical approach to 21st century badge-engineering has reached its logical end: the slow, overpriced, and stupidly conceived Cadillac ELR is going away.
In our 4th article pulled from Electric Cars: What Early Adopters & First Followers Want — a new report from CleanTechnica, EV Obsession, and GAS2 — I’m jumping into which electric car models respondents were most likely to buy and most excited, as well as some implications regarding certain car companies. Without surprise, current EV ownership matched historical EV sales fairly well — 33.9% […]
Via EV Obsession: One wouldn’t necessarily expect a car as expensive as the Cadillac ELR to sell used for just $39,000 (with only 2,800 miles on the odometer), would they? Having 2,800 miles on the odometer, that means that the car has barely even been used, and yet it’s selling for much, much less than what […]
Via EV Obsession: Despite the ongoing economic troubles of Canada (and the falling gas prices), sales of the Chevrolet Volt are continuing to go strong there — based on the recently aggregated sales figures for the US’s northern neighbor during August 2015. Altogether, there were 167 Chevy Volts sold during August 2015 in Canada — somewhat […]
Via EV Obsession: Well, let’s be honest, August was a lame sales month for electric car lovers. There are clear reasons for this. Historically, the two highest-selling electric cars in the US have been the Nissan LEAF and the Chevy Volt. The 2nd-generation Chevy Volt, much improved and even a little cheaper, is just hitting the […]
Originally published on EV Obsession. We’ve covered Plugless Power for years, but it seems like it’s been awhile. Basically, Plugless Power is one of the top providers of wireless home EV charging stations. (Actually, it claims to be the provider of the world’s first wireless EV charging station.) Someone from Plugless Power (or, more accurately, Evatran) […]
Originally published on EV Obsession. Well, that was a crappy month… if you’re an electric car fan. Almost across the board, US electric car sales were down in July 2015 compared to July 2014. However, three models were up — the Tesla Model S ($75,000), the Mercedes B-Class Electric ($41,450), and the BMW i3 (42,400). […]
I’ve been long planning to do an EV owner and lessee survey like this, so I am super eager to see the results. (I’m going to have a hard time not watching them obsessively as they come in.) But the key, of course, is getting EV owners and lessees to complete the survey. If you drive […]
What’s the fastest electric car on the market? I think you can guess, but what about #2–17? First of all, let’s get a little perspective in here. A car’s quickness is generally rated by how fast it goes from o mph to 60 mph (or 0 km/h to 100 km/h outside of the USA and a […]
A few days ago I reported that the Cadillac ELR would not be replaced after its product cycle ran out…and just how long that product cycle was is anybody’s guess, because GM wasn’t talking. That led to Cadillac CEO John de NYsschen commenting on our post, saying that the ELR wasn’t dead, and that a […]
Cadillac CEO’s Response To GAS2, 2016 Chevy Malibu, Tesla Model S 70D, & Tesla Pricing (Cleantech Talk #9)
First of all, if you missed last week’s Cleantech Talk episode, I’m sure it’s one you don’t want to miss — be sure to listen to Chris and I interview Tesla Cofounder and Wrightspeed Founder & CEO Ian Wright. This week’s Cleantech Talk podcast was an especially interesting one, imho. The first story Chris DeMorro and I discussed […]
Originally posted on CleanTechnica Last week GM revealed its new flagship luxury car, the Cadillac CT6, which debuts a new naming nomenclature and chassis structure for the brand. While the Cadillac CT6 debuted with a 400 horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine, CEO Johan de Nysschen told The Detroit Bureau that a plug-in hybrid version with similar […]
UPDATE: Cadillac has reached out to say that a 2016 Cadillac ELR with “upgrades” is in the works, so it’s not quite dead yet. If I find out more, I’ll let you know. Take a trip with me if you will back to September of 2009. I had graduated college, turned down a job in […]
More than 118,000 electrified vehicles were sold in the U.S. in 2014, a 27% increase over 2013 and the first time sales of plug-ins have hit six-figures.
Cadillac president de Nysschen says that Cadillac will have more electric and plug in models in the future and will introduce 8 new models by 2020.
