Cadillac ELR, Plug in to Siberia.

Video tip: We wondered what might have happened to Robert Llewellyn from Fully Charged as the videos became a little less frequent. Apparently, he is taking in the States in style as he test drives the Caddy ELR, going from LA to Vegas. The show goes on!

Reading tip: Porsche Russia has asked selected journalists to ‘Plug in to Siberia’ quite literally as the group takes the Panamera and Cayenne plug-in hybrids on a 7,000-km trail from Irkutsk to Ekaterinburg while taking in the sights. A rather cool trip, indeed.

BMW DC-Charger, EVs in the U.S., Cadillac ELR review.

Reading tip: Laurent J. Masson is anything else than impressed with the new BMW i charger as he finds it far too slow at 24 kW for deserving the name of a fast charger or being able to compete with those on the market already.

Click tip: Six info graphics show the rise of the electric car in the States and how rising petrol prices or charging infrastructure drive the change.

Video tip: Translogic’s Jonathan Buckley went to Los Angeles to check out if the Cadillac ELR has any chance to live up to its price tag.

Mercedes AMG SLS Electric Drive, Cadillac ELR.

Video tip: TopGear called for the war of the roses when putting the Mercedes AMG SLS Electric Drive up against its brother, the SLS AMG Black Series. See for yourself if the extra electric power is enough to beat the lightweight!

Working hard,…

…no matter what your goals are. This could be one of the interpretations for Cadillac’s controversial ‘Poolside’ commercial featuring the plug-in ELR (we reported). In it’s latest clip on the C-Max Energi, Ford is now giving us their view on it. Please draw your own conclusions. All we know: No matter how hard you work, you will only have to do half the work for the Ford.

Porsche 918 Spyder, Cadillac ELR.

Video tip I: In the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Daniel Eastman from Porsche is walking Leno through the 918 Spyder before taking it on a test drive. Surely a nice sum-up of the development and features of the plug-in hybrid supercar.

Video tip II: The new commercial for the Cadillac ELR is definitively less provocative than the previous ‘Poolside’ clip (we reported) but it highlights the plug-in ELR as an electric car without compromise. Well, will this reignite the debate about whether the Voltec drivetrain classifies the ELR as a plug-in hybrid rather than a range-extended electric car?
