Cadillac says the ELR electric coupe delivers a distinctly different driving experience than the Volt--one that puts it in the conversation with vehicles like the Tesla Model S and BMW 6-Series--but in our experience, the ELR isn't that refined or that dynamic.

The ELR's 4000-pound heft and its less sophisticated suspension fall short, even when the driver selects Sport mode, which weights up the steering, sharpens throttle feel and tightens up the dampers (which aren't the prime magnetically-controlled pieces found on the Corvette or CTS; those would consume too much energy, we're told).
