2016 Cadillac ELR Release Date

This 2016 Cadillac ELR hybrid is a friendly environmental car that soon going to be released in the market. This hybrid car is not only environmental friendly but also has a great and elegant design too with some improvements to ensure the comfort to its drivers.  This hybrid car is the result of technology improvements in automotive field. So let’s check the interior and exterior changes of this 2016 Cadillac ELR as well as the engine too.

The brand may have sent a foul ball spinning into the bleachers, but it’s not yet willing to say that it struck out with the ELR. After sitting out the 2015 model year completely, Cadillac’s extended-range electric coupe (or plug-in hybrid) enters the 2016 model year with $10k price discount, a stronger new drive system, some technology upgrades, and improvements to handling, steering, and braking.

With increasing usage and demands for cars, the manufacturers are coming out with new technology advancements in terms of the cars that they are manufacturing. There has been a strong competition between auto-mobile companies and they keep adding on engineering enhancements from time to time to withhold themselves in the industry. One such recent enhancement done is the 2016 Cadillac ELR which is expected to make its debut anytime during November, 2014 at the Los Angeles auto show. In general, the Cadillac ELR is being let out after a year with certain engineering enhancement work outs and with a more ravishing look.

Cadillac announced the ELR electrified luxury coupe will offer a host of upgrades for the 2016 model year, including boosts in acceleration, driving performance and connectivity. Major product upgrades include a more than 25 percent boost in power and torque, faster acceleration that improves 0-60 mph by 1.5 seconds, higher top speed, retuned chassis and steering for better handling, more responsive brakes and a new Performance equipment package.

“ELR’s combination of leading technology with stunningly attractive design is unlike any other coupe in the luxury segment,” said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen. “The upgraded ELR offers enhanced driving performance for buyers seeking uncompromising luxury and exquisite craftsmanship with electrification technology. It is unique in the luxury category, in that it completely eliminates conventional concerns over driving range, which has been the Achilles’ heel of other competitors in the luxury segment.”

2016 Cadillac ELR Redesign

The redesigned 2016 Cadillac ELR is making its debut in the market very soon. Not much information has been released by the manufacturer with regards to its works or enhancements. But even with that, it seems to be about to come out with the first ever concept of advanced electrical driving system and rather extensive on-board generators that run by means of gas. The grille panels of the vehicle, the LED headlamps at the front, the crafted and jeweled lamps at the back, all of them elements are going to play a vital role in enhancing the overall beauty of the car. The door handles are kept hidden and the lighting set up through the door sides is surely going to give the car a very inspirational appeal. The other enhancements are just the material of the car seats and their design.

2016 Cadillac ELR Specs

While in the exterior, this 2016 Cadillac ELR will still be using a chrome grille with trapezoid form, the spiral angel light in the front end of the car fascia, LED headlamps, crafted lampas and jeweled lamps in the back side of the car that shows the typical Cadillac’s car. But this car will look cool with the hidden door handle and light in the door sides. Besides the changes that I have written, there are no more information about this car changes so let’s see the engine instead.

All 2016 ELRs contain software upgrades to the battery system improving power and acceleration, with EV range growing on the base model. Additionally, the 2016 ELR has a modified Sport mode that enables the propulsion system to combine engine and electric motor power to take the ELR from 0-60 in 6.4 seconds, a 1.5 second improvement from the current model.

Using only the energy stored in the battery, the ELR will deliver an estimated range of about 39 miles (60 km) of pure electric driving, depending on terrain, driving techniques and temperature. The optional Performance Package reduces EV range by about four miles as a result of the enhanced grip of the 20-inch summer-only tires.

ELR continues to offer Regen on Demand, recipient of Green Car Journal’s 2014 Green Car Technology Award. Slightly enhanced for the 2016 model to improve deceleration, Regen on Demand allows the driver to temporarily regenerate energy from the ELR’s momentum into electricity and store in the battery pack for later use.

2016 Cadillac ELR Engine

Although the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt, with which the ELR is closely related uses a significantly reengineered powertrain compared to last year, the 2016 Cadillac ELR carries over with its existing arrangement, with a 1.4 liter four-cylinder engine smoothly pitching in as both an onboard generator for all speeds and a traction motor at higher speeds. The electric motor system delivers up to 373 pound-feet of torque. Total driving range for the ELR is 330 miles. It can be fully recharged in about five hours on a 240V charger, or on 110V in as little as 12 hours. Total driving range with both power sources is about 330 miles.

The 2016 Cadillac ELR feels like it almost has two distinct performance identities; and that—more than the performance itself is its Achilles’ Heel. The ELR feels at its best when it’s been charged up and is powered by its twin electric motors; then it’s quiet and confident and does feel the part of an electric car. But after an EPA-rated 39 miles of all-electric driving, the 84-horsepower, 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine starts and brings a psychological downer: a distant buzzy, raspy drone whenever the car is hustled along. Once the gasoline engine starts, the ELR achieves an estimated 31 mpg combined on gasoline not much better than a V-6 so only consider this model if you plan to plug in faithfully.

The ELR offers a full driving range of up to 330 miles (530 km), combining pure electric driving and an efficient, range-extending 1.4L gasoline-powered engine-generator. It’s a combination that means most daily commutes will require zero gasoline with zero tailpipe emissions. Longer trips are free from electric-vehicle range anxiety because the ELR’s technology enables the long-distance travel similar to vehicles powered only by gasoline.

Like I have said earlier in this article, the 2016 Cadillac ELR hybrid will be using a lithium battery and also a cylinder engine. The battery is a 16.5 kWh lithium ion while the engine is a 1.4 liter engine that will produce 270 horsepower with 295 pound feet of torque. Once the battery is fully charged, this car can goes for 370 miles. To charge the battery full, you can charge it for at least 5 hours using 240 volts and 12 hours if using 120 volts. The best thing is you don’t need to buy gasoline, just charged the battery and the 2016 Cadillac ELR ready to run again.

The 2016 Cadillac ELR engine is going to work on electricity and it runs 370 miles for every full battery charge load. The charging time for the batteries is five hours for 240 volt and between 12 to 18 hours for 120 volts. The engine is designed to work on more horse powers for a better speed up.

The T-shaped battery pack is located along the centerline of the vehicle, between the front and rear wheels for optimal weight distribution. The 5.5-foot-long (1.6 m), 435-pound (198 kg) pack supplies energy to an advanced electric drive unit capable of 373 lb-ft of instant torque (506 Nm) to propel the vehicle.
