Aside from its lofty $75,000-plus price tag and mediocre acceleration, the Cadillac ELR is a brilliant plug-in vehicle.

That's the case being made here by CNN Money in this Cadillac ELR video review.

With perhaps dozens of ELR reviews now in, the consensus is that it's nothing like the Chevy Volt.  Sure, it operates in the same way, but the ELR is claimed to be more refined by most reviews, especially in the areas of interior treatments and suspension/handling, that the two vehicles are really totally different from each other.

That's not to say that the Chevy Volt is inferior to the ELR.  Just that each vehicle is unique and you have to weigh your desires in deciding whether or not the added refinement and sophistication found in the ELR is worth the extra $30,000 or so.
