Cadillac ELR Ready For The Smart Grid

Cadillac has announced its ELR extended range EV will be Smart Grid ready as soon as it comes off the production line.

Using the luxury coupe’s extended range electric vehicle technology combined with OnStar’s cloud-based connection, the ELR will be able to communicate with the electric grid and potentially save energy, said Cadillac.

Per GM’s luxury brand, ELR owners will have access to the OnStar RemoteLink Mobile App, which in addition to allowing drivers to check their vehicle’s operating systems and send remote commands, gives them access to electric vehicle specific functions. Cadillac explained the EV-tailored app shows owners their vehicle’s current state of charge, electric range, electric miles driven and eMPG, or equivalency of electric miles per gallon.

The RemoteLink Mobile App will also allow ELR owners to control and schedule vehicle charging, including an option to charge during off-peak hours when electricity rates are lowest.
