Earlier this month, General Motors’ Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant began shipping the luxurious 2014 Cadillac ELR to dealers across the country.
The vehicle is the first Cadillac to be produced at the plant in two years. The last Cadillac was the DTS sedan whose production ended in 2011.
The ELR, Cadillac’s first forage into the electric-hybrid field, offers an extended range of 300 miles.
The range-extending 1.4-liter gas engine, partnered together with an electric motor and 16.5 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, churns out 207 hp.
In its electric mode, the ELR will zoom to 60 seconds in 8.8 seconds.
The ELR is set to go on sale in January; but as soon as the vehicle hits dealerships, it is fair game for potential owners. That could mean some lucky owners will have their new Cadillac ELR on the road before the New Year.
