Cadillac ELR UPdate - NetCarShow

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."

Distinguished by a new grille and Cadillac's new crest, the 2016 ELR, which features the first application of extended-range electric vehicle technology by a full-line luxury automotive brand, will start at $58,495 net pricing after U.S. federal tax credits.

The 2016 ELR's steering and suspension upgrades include:

Revised calibration of the HiPer Strut front suspension
Increased front spring rates and a stiffer rear axle
Stiffer bushings for the front lower control arms, cradle mounts and Watts link in the rear suspension, for more precise control with no loss of ride quality
Revised calibrations for the Continuous Damping Control system
Front Damper Rebound Spring added
New steering calibration tuned to complement the revised chassis and suspension systems
Revised brake hardware and system calibration for improved application feel.

swiping from GMI: Last of the ELR's

They're dwindling down to a precious few, so I thought I'd leave these here.
