Extended Range Electric Vehicle (EREV) technology provides full driving
range exceeding 300 miles (480 km), combining pure electric driving and
an efficient, range-extending generator.
“ELR marks a fresh,
even surprising new dimension of Cadillac,” Ferguson said. “An
additional aspect of ELR’s appeal to will be exclusivity. It will be a
specialized offering produced in limited numbers.”
ELR’s confident and responsive
EREV driving technology is enhanced with exclusive Regen on
Demand and selectable drive modes that enhance driving and make
the most of efficiency. Regen on Demand allows the driver to
temporarily regenerate energy from the ELR’s momentum into
electricity that can be stored in the battery pack for later
use. It is engaged via steering-wheel paddles adapted from
traditional performance cars.
The industry-leading, proven EREV
technology is uniquely tuned for Cadillac in the ELR. Most daily
commutes will require zero gasoline with zero emissions. Longer trips
are free from electric-vehicle range anxiety because EREV technology
enables the same long-distance freedom as a conventional car.
