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.
