    That was the worst interview of GM designers engineers I have ever seen. The way they stumble in trying to answer the 0-60 and price questions are embarrassing ! Note to GM, get your marketing team to prep these guys next time. Geez

    ELR looks great though !

    I thought it was an excellent interview. For a car about one year out from final release the answers were factual and non-committal (as they would have to be), besides C&D supplied their best guess numbers for the viewer of this video. Csaba was excellent IMO, and the GM people quite acceptable, again (IMO).

    I just thought it looked like they were winging things too much with the car and didn't have enough tested. As a customer I would want to know that only one year out of a brand-new car being brought to market that they would put it through every torture test , performance test that is out there. In other words I'm looking at it that one year to release is a very very short time and that those engineer should have all the answers and been far more polished then they were.

    Hopefully we will see a more impressive 0-60 than 8 secs. For the kind of money they will be asking for this car you'd think they'd give you more performance. And not having RWD is disappointing too. Come on, it's a Cadillac!

    It's a beautiful looking car... I'll give them that much.

    RWD is like farting pixie dust on a plug in gas/hybrid like the ELR. Being Cadillac is being innovative, not clinging to some antiquated garbage from the past...
