Cadillac and ChargePoint announced they entered in a partnership, bringing ELR drivers immediate access to more than 16,500 charging locations on the ChargePoint network.
Cadillac’s ELR electrified luxury coupe went on sale at the end of 2013. The company said it embodies Cadillac’s Art & Science design philosophy, combining provocative design with progressive technology.
Under terms of this partnership, all 2014 and 2015 ELRs include a ChargePoint Driver Kit in the owner’s manual, providing access to its 16,500 EV charging stations.
“ChargePoint is thrilled that Cadillac, a marquee brand in the luxury car industry, has developed an electric vehicle for its customers,” said Pasquale Romano, ChargePoint CEO. “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.”
By choosing ChargePoint as a partner for the ELR, Cadillac explained it ensures that car buyers know there is a robust charging network to support the growth of electric vehicles.
The ELR has a total range of 340 miles and an all-electric range of 37 miles.
Providing a ChargePoint card with every ELR means drivers can immediately sign up for free and get access to ChargePoint’s network without delays.
“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,” said Uwe Ellinghaus, Global Cadillac chief marketing officer.“ChargePoint’s large network with advanced technology ensures the smoothest charging and greatest driving experience for ELR drivers.”
