Motor Trend: Here’s Your List of Vehicles That Will Likely be Cross Shopped With the Cadillac ELR
At $75,995, the ELR is up there in a spot occupied mostly by German luxury sedans. As such, Motor Trend believes most potential ELR buyers will cross shop it with the following vehicles:
- BMW 4 Series
- BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe
- BMW 435i xDrive
- BMW 640i
- Mercedes-Benz C350
- Mercedes-Benz E350
- Jaguar XK8
- Jaguar F-Type
In terms of performance, the ELR falls short of every vehicle on that list.
Motor Trends says that technology-geared individuals will likely cross shop the ELR with this list of vehicles:
- Tesla Model S
Again, not looking good in terms of the performance match-up for the ELR.
In these two fields of competitors, the ELR will not keep pace, so let’s hope Cadillac finds a way to market the ELR so that what it lacks in performance doesn’t factor into the buyer’s decision.
