    What makes the ELR a Cadillac

    I really wish Cadillac would do more and release more info on what makes the ELR not simply a Chevy Volt in Cadillac clothing . They need to push the differences between the Volt and the ELR more so that the general public doesn't simply just see this car as a Volt that has 2 doors instead of four like the Volt .

    Re: What makes the ELR a Cadillac

    I just saw the prototype ELR at a preview in Atlanta yesterday. Just one look tells you it's a Cadillac, and then you open the door and see a level of interior finish at or above Platinum level. There are numerous technical refinements and innovations on tap as well. I can't tell how well it drives yet, but the Volt drove quite well and was pretty refined to start with. The body and interior is definitely Cadillac all the way. Hopefully, the drive will be equally impressive.

    I seen it up close at NY auto show and if you never knew it shared underpinning with the volt know one would ever know. It's a really hot looking car.

    Fit, finish, interior design and hand crafted appointments, gobs of standard features and several Cadillac exclusives.. What more would it take to prove that this is no Volt?

    I don't even think they're the same car, if you read gm press on it they refer to volt tech, so the running gear and technology is shared as for the rest of the car, my guess is its pretty much a Cadillac, i will see it at a private viewing Saturday night, i'll ask and give my impressions after that
