    ELR Option Codes

    In developing a program to better analyze the pool of available ELRs, I've found that the options are coded into the VIN.

    Note1: the use of an extra-cost exterior paint is not indicated in the option code.
    Note2: these have not been verified by Cadillac, but I have identified them based on looking at a number of dealer sites which will display window stickers of cars they are selling

    The first 4 characters of the vin are always 1G6R. The 5th character indicates the factory options:

    L base, no options

    M Luxury package only

    N Kona Brown interior only

    P Luxury + Kona

    R Luxury + Adaptive Cruise

    S Luxury + Kona + Cruise

    The Saks (White) editions are option code R. Cadillac did not give then a unique option code (For shame, for shame. That would make it easy to counterfeit a Saks should they ever be worth doing so.)

    At the moment, there are 867 ELRs on cars.com. lowest vin = 00004, highest = 01409

    Do these codes hold true for the 2016 as well?

    I don't think so. I have a 2016 with performance package, Kona, and adaptive cruise, and my VIN has M as the fifth character.

    Re: ELR Option Codes

    Was adaptive cruise still an option in 2016 or standard?

    Option.

    Options on the 2016:
    Performance package $1,295 ... sport-tuned suspension, 'performance' anti-lock brakes, leather steering wheel, upgraded alloy wheels with summer-only tires
    Adaptive Cruise Control $1,995
    Kona Brown Leather seating ... $2,450
    Paint colors with a $500 upcharge: Crystal White Tricoat, Red Passion Tintcoat

    In the 2014, you needed to have the Luxury Package upgrade ($1,695 ... upgraded alloy wheels, rear cross-traffic alert, side blind zone alert, Intellibeam headlights) in order to be able to upgrade to ACC ($1,995). I don't think the 2016 requires the Performance Package to get ACC. Other 2014 options:
    Kona Brown Leather seating ... $2,450
    Paint color with a $995 upcharge: Crystal Red Tintcoat

    What's in the luxury package? And besides brown seats what's in the Kona package?

    No such thing as a "Kona Package" --unless you're checking guys out on a beach on the Big Island. . .

    ccclarke - thank you for posting the brochure and catalog - downloaded the 2014 one into my desktop folder titled all things ELR. Information like this will become scarcer for our cars as time goes on......

    Re: ELR Option Codes

    You're entirely welcome. I know first-hand of which you speak, regarding dwindling documentation and information when a vehicle is discontinued. After the demise of the XLR, information dried up fast. Fortunately, a dedicated website was available that archives just about everything, so owners always have a go-to place for questions regarding builds, options, mods, etc. It's broken down by types of information for posts as well. (Sort of like the V-centric info available on this site, only much more detailed.) Without accurate archival resources, owners are left to twist in the wind after a few years, and end up getting opinions and guesses rather than definitive answers to questions, especially when they are of a technical nature.

    I didn't catch that at first but that was a good one!

    Not much in the way of optional equipment but that's not a bad thing. Thanks for the info.
