We’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about the new 2014 Cadillac ELR and how far it can go. And of course, considering the ELR is powered by electricity, that’s a great question! Here’s how it breaks down – the Cadillac ELR can go about 37 miles on electricity only. So say you charge your ELR overnight in your garage and your commute to work is only 15 miles. You would easily be able to do that without using a drop of gas. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
But we all know that no one only goes to work and back every day of the week. There are always errands to be run and people to see. That’s where the gas comes in. So to explain this better, imagine your house just lost power and, well, you want to have power. What do you do? Fire up the generator, right? Fill up the generator with some gas, and voila! Your house now has power again.
The ELR works in basically the same way. When the ELR “loses power”, the gas generator onboard the ELR then kicks in seamlessly and starts giving power to the electric engine.
