DETROIT — When the all-new Cadillac ELR extended range luxury coupe arrives in dealerships this winter, it will be the first electric vehicle introduced with all-LED exterior lighting.
First shown at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the ELR’s front LED lights are designed to double as daytime running lights. The design of the main projectors extend from the ELR’s front fascia up into the fenders to create a sleek and dramatic appearance.
The signature vertical tail lights pay homage to classic Cadillac style and stay true to the Converj concept, on which the ELR is based.
“LED lights last much longer and use less energy than traditional halogen bulbs used in most vehicles,” said Martin Davis, exterior lead designer. “Beyond the beautiful design interpretation, using LED lights fits with the ELR’s environmentally friendly character.”
