Let me take you through some of the salient features of this electric hybrid coupe:
The 2014 ELR possesses a 1.4 liter 4-cylinder engine with a 16.5-kilowatt-hour battery, which can sustain 37 miles of pure electric driving. The car has the potential to generate 207 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
Top Speed & Acceleration
The 2014 ELR can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds in extended-range mode and takes 8.8 seconds in electric-only mode. You cannot call it exceptional, especially when we compare it with some of its competitors like the Tesla Model S. The maximum speed it can achieve is 106 mph, which is again shorter than its rivals.
Exterior & Interior
The hybrid coupe retains a graceful exterior and is a head-turner with 20-inch wheels and LED headlights and tail-lamps that augment its splendor. The gentle curve of the dashboard towards and around the driver feels quite pleasant. The 2014 Cadillac ELR offers seating to four adults, with ample leg space. The leather and other materials used in the interior are no doubt top-notch, while several connectivities and mobility features are also a part of the cabin.

I would give this electric hybrid coupe 7.5 out of 10 due to its exceptional architecture but the average engine. However, with a combined fuel economy of 33 MPG, it is surely one of the most economical cars out there.
