Cadillac has lopped $10,000 off the price of the ELR while also adding more power and features.
For 2016, entry to the ELR will cost $58,495 after federal tax credits, a full $10,000 cheaper than the car’s previous $68,495 price after federal tax credits and including destination charges.
That cheaper entry price will actually get you more performance than last year, as the 2016 model can now make the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds, a full 1.5 seconds faster than the previous car. All-electric driving range has improved slightly to 39 miles on base models, while overall range is pegged at 330 miles.

Additionally, a new performance package is being offered that brings along 20-inch performance summer tires, Brembo brakes, a sport steering wheel and uniquely tuned suspension.
As for interior improvements, the ELR now features sueded microfiber headliner, an eight-inch driver info display, three USB ports, power-assist covered cup holders, fold-down rear seatbacks and available semi-aniline full leather seats. An OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot has also been added as a standard feature.
