Comments - Cadillac ELR Could Arrive in 2014

Published: Apr 30, 2012
Description: It's no secret that General Motors intended from the get-go to build other models based on the Chevrolet Volt's technology. The only question was which division would be the first to have th...

Thank God! They said they weren't making the coupe, then they did. They said they weren't making the wagon, then they did. Then they weren't making the V versions of those, and they did. I see a theme..
Description: Although it generated solid reviews at the time, it seemed unlikely that GM would put such a car into production. Fast forward a few years and it makes more sense than ever for the automaker to make ...

That is a ugly car and cadillac is an old mans car
Maci Kartchner May 05, 2012
It's a nice car!
Phillip Holbrook May 01, 2012
That's true those reliability reports have even noted where the average number of cars in need of repair more than 50 times in their first year lowered from 127 per car to about 80 per car.
Duncan Jolley May 01, 2012
Every car company has improved over the last couple years. Which is great because more competition!
Phillip Holbrook May 01, 2012
In the position they were in.
Phillip Holbrook May 01, 2012
And for the record Nissan has done a great job on the lead and the quality of their vehicles since they went through their own financial turnaround. If America supported the car industry like Japan does, GM, Ford, and Chrysler would have never been
Duncan Jolley May 01, 2012
And going off of what Patrick said about the Leaf. I agree not practical and yes I think the Volt is more practical.
Phillip Holbrook May 01, 2012
My 2004 Alero is smoother, and has given me less problems than the 2005 Camry I had, the 2000 Altima I have had, and the 2006 Sebring I owned. I guess I just find all the lemons other manufacturers put out.
Duncan Jolley May 01, 2012
If you don't like American cars then that's fine. I like Americans cars AND some foreign cars. American cars are stepping up their game and if you want some foreign car by all means go for it no one is stopping you.
Phillip Holbrook May 01, 2012
As for quality, Buick, Cadillac, and yes even Oldsmobile have been in the top five of JD powers long term dependability report for quite some time now.
Phillip Holbrook May 01, 2012
Never to be seen by the American people again
Phillip Holbrook May 01, 2012
My fanboyism is at least grounded in factual reports from trusted sources. JD power, consumer reports and the like all say GM is the best at the moment. At least GM isn't practically owned by an Italian company. Those tax dollars are Euros now.
Mike Botté May 01, 2012
Dressing their cars up to blind customers. But real quality last. And my Nissan is real quality. As well as all nissans.
Mike Botté May 01, 2012
Have driven a 2009 cts w 40k miles, and my personal 2003 maxima with 95k miles, my Nissan is smoother, sportier and no rattles. The caddy rattled and was extremely bumpy and lacked power. And I was driving the 3.6 Di. So maybe caddy can win with
David Griego May 01, 2012
Government/ American people, If that's my tax dollars I say they should be producing the best vehicles on the road by now, not doing the minimum like they've always done.
David Griego May 01, 2012
There's nothing wrong with American cars right now, just GM products. They are barely getting by like they have been doing for the past 16 years. And your fanboyism shows how blind and ignorant you are to the truth. GM got money from the
Phillip Holbrook May 01, 2012
Your comment about the unlimited funds also shows how ignorant you truly are about the state of American cars, so I'm bowing out.
Phillip Holbrook May 01, 2012
And if you get to use the Impala I'd gladly compare it to the previous gen Avalon, they were actually on par
Phillip Holbrook May 01, 2012
Compare a new Cruze and a new Corolla, the Corolla came in dead last in the last comparo it was in.
Tim Preisinger May 01, 2012
Sure, compare two USED cars. Who knows how they were taken care of. Compare a new cts to a maxima. I have been lucky enough to drive both and I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised with the caddy. Both in how it drives and in the interior
Patrick Schalk Apr 30, 2012
We all know the Impala is a turd. Every manufacturer has them. Nissan has the Cube. Honda has the Civic. And Toyota has everything that they make.
David Griego Apr 30, 2012
Drive a 2011 impala, then test drive a 2011 maxima. Nissan wins hands down. The impala was already squeaking when I pulled off the lot. It was a used car, but it only had 10,000 miles on the odometer.I haven't wanted to test the Toyota. Looks boring.
Tim Preisinger Apr 30, 2012
Where are you getting this poor quality thing from? It's no longer 1991. GM has put out some really nice stuff the past few years. Drive a brand new CTS and then drive a Toyota or Nissan. Then come back and say GM is lacking on quality.
David Griego Apr 30, 2012
Even if it falls apart in 10 or so years. lol
David Griego Apr 30, 2012
I know right, bad quality and they are still the number one selling car company in the world, people must be dumb or something. Camaro is probably the only GM product I would buy, but that's because it an American icon.
Patrick Schalk Apr 30, 2012
Haha well they WERE the top selling auto manufacturer in the world last year, so I'd say they are doing something right.
Stephen Tyler Learn Apr 30, 2012
Unlimited cash flow from the government? That's not exactly how it works
David Griego Apr 30, 2012
I'm just saying, if they have an unlimited money cash-flow from the government, shouldn't they not have ANY problems with their vehicles conceived while owned by the government. They should be at the top of the quality charts by now.
Phillip Holbrook Apr 30, 2012
David then you should criticize the problems that are real not inflated by the media. And at least if you buy a GMC Sierra you wouldn't have to worry about the tailgate falling off if you and a friend sat on it like when the Tundra was released.
Patrick Schalk Apr 30, 2012
The Nissan Leaf goes like less than 100 miles. When it's actually practical, then give me a call. It takes 12 hours to charge using a 115/120 outlet.
David Griego Apr 30, 2012
And I don't hate GM, I actually used to only want GM products, but they need to get their head out of their asses and get with the program, This is NOT hating, It's constructive criticism!
David Griego Apr 30, 2012
Did Nissan have any leaf problems, No, because they built their car with quality. 3rd of all, when does a GM product EVER make a car with more quality then Toyota or Nissan, never.
David Griego Apr 30, 2012
1st of all, ALL lithium-ion batteries are flammable if punctured or get too hot. 2nd of all, if GM did the right thing, they would of spent more money on quality the first time instead of a recall
Zachary Fix Apr 30, 2012
I would so get this car if it had a V8
Duncan Jolley Apr 30, 2012
I don't see why people are complaining about the Volt. Yes it's a bit overprice but compared to the Leaf or a Prius? The Volt has better quality. And if Cad released this, it'd be a smart Move on their part.
Phillip Holbrook Apr 30, 2012
And they did the right thing and bought back the Volts from the people who ignored the facts. If you hate GM so much just ignore their articles.
Phillip Holbrook Apr 30, 2012
@David the actual people who get paid to determine if the batteries are flammable, said that the Volt is no more flammable than any other car. The fire was determined to be an electrical problem separate from the battery's.
John Serely Apr 30, 2012
I would rather see this as a four door, rather than a 2 door. I don't think they will sell many coupes, but I could see a sedan working
David Griego Apr 30, 2012
Now their losing money on the volt, which is what they deserve for being cheap liars who robbed the US people.
David Griego Apr 30, 2012
Facts are right about the fires. ALL lith-ion batteries of large size are flammable, GM built a shitty casing around the battery to save money/ more profit. Now GM is paying for their stupidity and had to fix all Volts sold.
Craig Lafey Apr 30, 2012
This is awesome.
Devin Babyn Apr 30, 2012
I hate there solid grills that've been putting on their electrics. It just looks pointless and out of place
Bijan Jahanpanah Apr 30, 2012
Then they have another cts-v coupe
Brandon Lidy Apr 30, 2012
At least give people the option for a 6.2 or maybe 7.0 liter for this good looking car
Paul Trahan Apr 30, 2012
Wow. A hybrid that does look good. Imagine that. Lol
Phillip Holbrook Apr 30, 2012
http://www.forbes.com/sites/joannmuller/2012/01/20/government-ends-probe-into-chevy-volt-fires/ At least get your facts straight about the fires.
David Griego Apr 30, 2012
Looks like a rebadged/regrilled Pontiac G6 with an oversized flammable battery. If this car goes into production, and it cost more than the volts $40,000, I think GM is setting Cadillac up for failure.
Matt Piccolo Apr 30, 2012
I don't like caddy's but this is pretty nice
Colby Church Apr 30, 2012
Cadillac is awesome now.... Lol. Such badass cars with aggressive designs.
Josh Banning Apr 30, 2012
Best looking Cadillac I've seen, but thats not really saying much
Dustin Emerick Apr 30, 2012
Why make a nice looking car a hybrid?
Duncan Jolley May 01, 2012
I'm excited for the next few Caddys!
Scotty Gee May 01, 2012
Man, that is so crisp. Super nice design.
Patrick Schalk Apr 30, 2012
I watched a small info vid on the XTS and it is AWESOME. I really hope Caddy makes the Ciel though. That thing is amazing.
Tim Preisinger Apr 30, 2012
I really like what I have seen so far from the XTS
Phillip Holbrook Apr 30, 2012
The ATS (3 series competitor) and the XTS (at best a Lincoln MKS competitor, minus ecoboosted). The ATS is worth the hype, the XTS will be a gussied up Impala, love GM but thems the facts.
Brandon Lidy Apr 30, 2012
Probably so. However, they have two sedans coming out shortly do they not ?
John Gomez Apr 30, 2012
Not bad but would probably sell better as a sedan
Daniel Levy Apr 30, 2012
Cadillac has definitely stepped up its styling jeez
Colby Church Apr 30, 2012
That's sexy, I don't care what anyone says.
Byron Hinrichsen Apr 30, 2012
GM needs to put this into production! Beautiful ride!
Elijah McBryant Apr 30, 2012
I didn't love the head lights but the tail lights are legit
