2016 Cadillac ELR

The demand for fuel-efficient cars is growing, and that means more and more automakers are adding plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles to their lineups. The 2016 Cadillac ELR is one example, as the edgy-looking coupe is Cadillac's first-ever plug-in hybrid vehicle.

On the outside, the ELR offers many of the touches we've come to expect from Cadillac, ranging from a dramatic shape to angular lines, sharp-edged headlights and taillights and a bold grille. It's the same story on the inside, where the ELR includes the modern, high-end look we've come to associate with Cadillac. But under the hood, the ELR is a whole different animal. That's because it uses a 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that's mated to an electric motor, which offers the ability to drive 37 miles on electric power alone -- the same powerplant you'll find in the popular Chevy Volt.
While the ELR might sound good on paper, it comes with a few drawbacks. Most notably, its price, which was so steep when it was released in 2014 that Cadillac took the 2015 model year off to clear out unsold inventory. The ELR also struggles to offer more value than the Chevy Volt, which is more practical and cheaper, or the Tesla Model S, which costs about the same and offers better performance and a longer range. Still, the ELR is worth a look for drivers who love the Cadillac brand and want a unique plug-in hybrid that'll stand out on the road.
