JOLIET, Ill., Dec. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The buzz surrounding the Cadillac ELR has been tangible for months as Cadillac dealerships and enthusiasts await the arrival of the luxury plug-in hybrid. After years of concepts, rumors, and updates, the 2014 Cadillac ELR is close to becoming a reality at Bill Jacobs Cadillac, as the newest addition to the Cadillac family is on its way to US dealerships.
Although the ELR is en route, Chicago Cadillac enthusiasts may have to wait until early 2014 for the ELR to arrive. The extended-range EV is a rare breed for the automotive industry, and one that is expected to catch the attention of luxury drivers with an eco-conscious mentality.
Before drivers notice its fuel efficiency and performance, however, they'll notice the striking exterior and cutting-edge interior designs. Certainly, the ELR embodies Cadillac's upscale styling as the two-door coupe features a low, sleek profile, sophisticated curves, and an interior filled with quality materials and advanced technology.
While design prowess is well within Cadillac's realm of expertise, the Cadillac ELR's powertrain is what raises the eyebrows of some consumers. As a plug-in hybrid, the ELR most often uses its electric drive system to propel itself. The Cadillac ELR utilizes an onboard generator powered by gas that creates energy to charge the electric drive system. That gas generator also serves as a traditional four-cylinder engine that serves as a range-extending alternative when the ELR's electric charge is depleted.
Additionally, Bill Jacobs Cadillac provides useful tips about the ELR to help drivers new to the plug-in hybrid segment get the most from the ELR, even in the unfavorable conditions of Illinois winters.
The Cadillac ELR's arrival isn't the only excitement around Bill Jacobs Cadillac, however, as the Joliet dealer is currently hosting the Cadillac Season's Best Event, which provides exceptional savings on 2013 and 2014 Cadillac models.
