The Cadillac ELR Should Lead to a Chevrolet Volt Coupe

The Cadillac ELR is a 2-door coupe based on the chassis and drivetrain of the Chevrolet Volt and in the next couple of years, General Motors should introduce a 2-door coupe version of the Chevy Volt – a move which could help the industry’s bestselling EV move even more units.

It seems that all of the shot callers in the auto industry feel that the family man is the only person who wants to drive a hybrid or EV which is evident by the fact that pretty much every vehicle in those two segments – the Toyota Prius Hybrid, the Ford Focus and Fusion (both hybrid and electric), the Tesla Model S, the Nissan Leaf, the Chevy Volt, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, the Fisker Karma – are all 4-door sedans or family-friendly 5-door models.

While some of them have obvious sporty cues (such as the surprisingly quick Tesla sedan) but there are really very few options for EV buyers who want a sportier 2-door coupe. The only mainstream EV in America that comes in a sport 2-door form is the Fiat 500e but that will change when the new Cadillac ELR hits dealerships later this year. The fact that the Fiat 500e quickly sold out and the fact that GM can confidently charge $75,000 for the ELR shows that there is indeed market demand for a smaller, sportier EV with two doors.
