2014 Cadillac ELR MSRP Set at $75000

Wow, we didn’t see that coming.

2014 Cadillac ELR Reservation E-MailWith the Chevy Volt, on which it is based, having a starting price of $34995 (after this years’ $5k price drop), we would have been comfortable predicting a starting price for the ELR in the mid $50000 range.

This even with its long list of upgrades such as a bespoke Cadillac interior with CUE, 20″ wheels, full LED lighting, uprated Voltec power train, and sexy sheet metal.

But, Cadillac released a reservation page for the new ELR today with a starting price (before tax incentives) of $75000 ($75995 with destination). Our jaw is understandably dropping at a 50% higher price than we expected.

So, what do -you- think? Is Cadillac justified in pricing the ELR higher than the base price of a Tesla Model S ($71k-ish)?

    I planned to buy one if the price was in the high $50K range. $75K is way too expensive for what the car is. A second generation Voltec car, tuned for performance, could have gone further upmarket, but I feel strongly that they’ve priced the car too high. It’s very disappointing — I would have liked to own an ELR. Now that I’ve seen the pricing, I’ll probably just wait to buy a second generation Volt or an ATS coupe instead.
