2014 Cadillac ELR
Given the exorbitant cost of electric cars, it’s only natural to see one as a Cadillac. The ELR is based on the Chevrolet Volt, which means it can drive about 35 miles on electricity before its gas engine switches on. Loaded with leather, suede-like Alcantara, and Cadillac’s touch-sensitive CUE infotainment system, the ELR will have every gee-whiz feature General Motors can possibly dream up, all for about $50,000. It’ll be a tough sell, but no other luxury brand is selling an efﬁcient plug-in car within the United States, let alone one that looks this sharp.
