Photos of the Cadillac ELR

Vertical lamps (LEDs here) a Cadillac signature. Large grille largely blocked off because electric.

Dramatic angles, especially in the shoulder. 20-inch wheels are plenty big.

Production ELR exterior holds true to the stunning Converj concept.

Production Chevrolet Volt mimicked the shape of the Prius. No one will confuse it with the ELR.

The ELR is nine inches longer than the Volt, all of them in the pointier nose and tail.

Though the ELR's roof line sweeps all the way to its spoiler, it has a trunk, not a tailgate.

I found a free, fast public charger in a parking garage.

The Volt is a hatchback.

Like other recent Cadillacs, the ELR's interior melds a dizzying number of upscale elements.

The Volt's interior tries to capture that clean, futuristic Apple flavor.

The vast black surface beneath the windshield can turn the ELR into a solar oven.

Also as in other recent Cadillac's the touch-sensitive controls can be finicky.

Yellowish-green leaf on the left suggests that my acceleration is moderately efficient.

Running the A/C on max will dramatically reduce the ELR's range.

Because I have only a standard electrical outlet at home, I ended up using a fair amount of gas.

The Chevrolet grades its drivers. The Cadillac lacks this feature.

Optional brown leather seats add manual thigh support and power-adjustable bolsters. Comfy.

Tight and hard to get into. T-shaped battery pack resides within the high console, behind the seats.

Adequate trunk space, given the typical roles of a coupe.

Gas engine largely serves as a back-up, but must be summoned for peak power.
