Cadillac adds ChargePoint network access to ELR
Based on the same drivetrain as the Chevrolet Volt and Opel/Vauxhall Ampera, but sharing no external parts, drivers of the 2014 and 2015 Cadillac ELR will be provided with free membership to the network via a kit in the owner’s manual.
Uwe Ellinghaus, Global Cadillac chief marketing officer, said: ‘We strive to provide Cadillac buyers with the highest level of customer care and ease of use for their vehicles, which is why we chose to partner with ChargePoint for the ELR. ChargePoint’s large network with advanced technology ensures the smoothest charging and greatest driving experience for ELR drivers.’
ChargePoint’s network includes units located along key routes and in major shopping centres, and is estimated to have delivered enough electricity for 94 million miles of driving since the first installations were completed in 2009.
Pasquale Romano, ChargePoint CEO, added: ‘With the ELR, Cadillac is helping drive the rapid growth of EVs by offering an innovative and premium vehicle. We are confident that as more EV options come out, more people will make the switch to electric.'
