Chicago-area Cadillac dealer prepares for arrival of Smart Grid ready Cadillac ELR

Bill Jacobs Cadillac set to welcome Cadillac ELR to Joliet showroom

JOLIET, Ill., Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- After years of speculation, concepts, and updates, the 2014 Cadillac ELR is approaching its arrival at Bill Jacobs Cadillac near Chicago and Cadillac dealers across the country.


Expected to be released to dealerships in early 2014, the Cadillac ELR will mark the luxury brand's first extended range electric coupe. With an electric propulsion system and a range-extending gas-powered generator, the 2014 Cadillac ELR has an electric range of up to 35 miles.

With a recent announcement from Cadillac that the ELR will be able to communicate with the Smart Grid through OnStar-enabled solutions when it rolls off the production line, prospective Cadillac ELR owners will be able to schedule, start, stop, and monitor charging through the OnStar RemoteLink mobile application. Additionally, OnStar's cloud-based connection with the grid allows ELR owners to view time-of-use data so they can charge during off-peak hours when electricity rates are at their lowest.

While its cutting-edge tech and fuel-economy are sure to excite, the ELR's sleek exterior makes it one of the most appealing fuel-economy-focused coupes available. With distinct lines, aggressive edges, and a low, predatory stance, the 2014 Cadillac ELR explores an exceptional blend of luxury and efficiency.

In addition to preparing its showroom, Bill Jacobs Cadillac is offering tips for those first Cadillac ELR owners looking to maximize their electric range during Illinois winters. With cold weather driving tips and vehicle comparisons, Bill Jacobs Joliet supplements the car shopping experience with several helpful resources.

The upcoming release of the Cadillac ELR isn't the only news at Bill Jacobs Cadillac, however. With the 2014 Cadillac CTS earning the Motor Trend Car of the Year designation and the next-generation Cadillac Escalade being unveiled in New York, Cadillac shoppers near Chicago have plenty of reasons to visit the Joliet dealership.
