Another loser GM product. Next.


I've never been a fan of Cadillac's. They are entertaining to borrow or rent now and then. And how about all those silver-hairs with 500hp doing 15mph everywhere burning 15mpg?!

These are pretty sharp, but without some venting work they look like a prius. The horrible application of chrome, that absurd spider web grill, and price scream no way!

auto media expected a price $30k less? Based on what? The Volt was over $40k fully loaded before GM dropped the price. Why would the ELR have been priced around $45k? Its expensive, but not by $30k. Maybe by $15k at most.


RIP-Kaisen- the chrome on this is not ostentatious at all, especially compared to past Cadillacs; if you want to nitpick, maybe they could've done without the lower body chrome strip, but even that is debatable. As for the grill, it fits right in with the rest of the Cadillac family, but for aerodynamic requirements to close up the holes.

I was never a fan of Cadillacs until the resurgence. Even then, would never buy one. Not until the CTS-V coupe came out did my head really turn. They have come back, and they seem to have a real life brand renaissance on their hands here.

As for the ELR, yes I think it is priced too high for the market, If they were going to try to compete with Tesla and charge this kind of coin, Cadillac should've started from the ground up instead of revamping the Volt.

This car has many flaws that will piss you off. 85k waste of money. Wind noise from a design flaw around the door windows. GM does not care! You practically have to yell to the person next to you in the car it is so loud
