While Jerry Seinfeld was gallivanting around LA with Sarah Silverman in a Jaguar XKE (http://www.autoblog.com/2013/06/15/comedians-in-cars-getting-coffee-season-2-opens-with-sarah-silve/), our favorite car-loving comedian, Jay Leno, was checking out the all-new 2014 Cadillac ELR (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/cadillac+elr/). Set to go on sale later this year, Cadillac brought its ELR to Jay Leno's Garage (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/jay+lenos+garage/) to show off some of its styling and technology as well as give Leno some seat time in the range-extended EV. Leno owns both a Volt and a CTS-V (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/cts-v/), and the ELR is a kind combination of the two (sort of).

In this episode, Leno spends some time talking to Frank Saucedo, GM director of advanced design, and ELR chief engineer Chris Thomason before logging a few miles on the sleek coupe. Interestingly, it seems that GM has definitely changed its tune a little since the introduction of the Volt a couple years ago; Saucedo and Leno both refer to the ELR as a hybrid, and Thomason says that it gets the "bulk of its propulsion" from the electric motors.
