The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Cadillac ELR is back with a somewhat sportier attitude and a lower sticker price. Is that enough? The new 2016 Chevy Volt improves on its predecessor in every way that counts, and its 53-mile range is unsurpassed among plug-in hybrids—meaning its biggest weak spot is GM’s ability to explain and market it.
