Quick Note: Cadillac ELR Getting Plugless Power Wireless Charging Support on September 1
July 28, 2014 6:26 PM
Advanced orders can be placed today
The Cadillac ELR will be one of the next electric vehicles to use Evatran's Plugless Power wireless charging systems. According to a new report from
, Evatran said it's adding three new premium EVs to its Plugless Power chargers, one of them being the Cadillac ELR. The other two haven't been announced yet.
The Cadillac ELR makes sense as a new addition, since its powertrain is similar to that of the Chevrolet Volt (Evatran has been testing its charging systems on the Volt for years). The ELR package with the Plugless Power L2 wireless systems will be available starting September 1, but advanced orders can be placed today.
The Cadillac ELR -- a luxury plug-in hybrid compact coupe -- started shipping in December 2013 with a hefty
price tag of $75,000 USD
. Through April 2014, only 241 ELRs were sold, and that number only slightly rose to 390 vehicles as of June.
General Motors (GM) was so desperate to move the vehicles that it offered $5,000 USD per vehicle in incentives just to get people to test drive the car. Then it added on another $3,000 USD in incentives for buyers and lessees.
Earlier this month, it was reported that dealerships were
offering as much as $19,000 USD off
the Cadillac ELR just to get
-- anyone -- to buy them.
The ELR sports a Series hybrid drivetrain with a 16.5 kWh lithium-ion battery for 37 miles of all-electric range. It's total range is 340 miles with a 1398 cc EcoFLEX LUU I4 gasoline engine.
