Cadillac ELR charging

Cadillac ELR charging

Fully Charged finally is back this month for the very first time in 2015!

Robert Llewellyn was in the US and prepared video on a car that isn't available in the UK - the Cadillac ELR.

Llewellyn, together with Chelsea Sexton, drives from Los Angeles to Las Vegas talking not only about the ELR, but also about the general situation of plug-in electric car sales.  A very interesting conversation to say the least.

"A drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in the very refined Cadillac ELR plug-in-hybrid. I'm joined in the car by Chelsea Sexton, Californian electric car advocate who was featured in the award winning documentary 'Who Killed the Electric Car?'

Engine. 1,400cc four cylinder petrol series hybrid withe 16.5 kWh lithium-ion battery

The all-electric range is around 35 miles, and total range is around 300 miles with a full battery and tank.

Top speed is 100mph – making it a similar performer to the Volt.

The ELR was going to be be sold from the sole UK dealer in Manchester but they went bankrupt so I don't think you can buy one here."
