Chief engineer describes chassis, Cue system and safety features as new and different
The Cadillac ELR, launched at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, is an extended-range electric luxury coupe set to appear in Cadillac showrooms in early 2014.
While the ELR could be described as the Cadillac version of the Chevy Volt, ELR chief engineer Chris Thomason says his team’s goal was to “provide a ride-and-handling character unlike any EV on the market today.”
ECOtality, Inc. will offer its Blink® smart charging stations free to residents and commercial host sites in the metropolitan Chicago and greater Philadelphia areas as part of its expansion of The EV Project, a public-private partnership with the Department of Energy.
“By signing up for a free charger, EV owners can take part in this massive research project that can help reduce our country’s dependence on foreign oil,” said ECOtality Chief Innovation Officer Don Karner.
