If you keep the competition to models under $100k, there are no other plug-in electric luxury coupes on the market at present.
But the clear competition is the Tesla Model S; at about $76k, the base-model 2015 Tesla Model S 70D offers an all-electric driving range of 240 miles, and offers the sort of luxury cachet that the ELR lacks.
Additionally, the Model S will hold four adults and lots of luggage comfortably.
On the other hand, the ELR bucks range anxiety completely.
So does the BMW i3, but its little 34-hp range extender is strictly for part-time use.
You might also consider the Chevrolet Volt itself; redesigned for 2016, it looks poised to offer a more conventional driving experience along with more all-electric driving range than before (around 50 miles).
