Saks Fifth Avenue Limited Edition Cadillac ELR
As we detailed over a week ago, the limited edition (100 units) 2014 Cadillac ELR Saks Fifth Avenue is available to order.
Now, we have pricing for this rarer-than-rare ELR: $89,500.
The standard ELR carries a base price of $75,995. We had previously speculated that this Saks version would carry of premium of $10,000 to $20,000. We were spot on.
For that extra coin, Cadillac throws in an exclusive exterior paint color (White Diamond) and a “premium 240v charging station and installation service.”
Buyers get a choice of Light Cashmere or Jet Black for interior colors.
Other than that, little appears to be changed between the standard ELR and this limited-edition version.
Here's Cadillac's full press blast on the Saks Fifth Avenue ELR:
Cadillac is collaborating with Saks Fifth Avenue this holiday season to create a unique window display featuring the all-new 2015 Escalade luxury SUV, and to offer an exclusive special-edition 2014 Saks Fifth Avenue ELR electrified luxury coupe through the 2013 Saks Holiday Catalog. Cadillac was also the official vehicle of Saks’ fall First LOOK Campaign.
Cadillac and Saks Fifth Avenue are rolling out their holiday festivities, hosting events at Saks retail stores in key markets with more events to follow throughout the fall and early winter.
On November 25, Cadillac and Saks Fifth Avenue will reveal a specially designed “Frozen Escalade” window display at the Saks flagship store near Rockefeller Center on Fifth Avenue in New York City. The display will feature a White Diamond 2015 Escalade with functioning light-emitting diode, or LED, running lamps, which appear embedded and breaking through a wall of ice.
