Many people see the Cadillac ELR as General Motors' direct competitor to the Tesla Model S, but GM's head of global product development, Mark Reuss says it isn't.
“People like to say the ELR is, but it’s really not. It’s a different car, it’s a different price point. It’s way-different technology,” Reuss said.
Ruess goes onto say that he isn't sure if the company has a direct competitor to Tesla.
So why do many people consider the ELR a competitor to the Model S? Probably from a quote from former GM CEO Dan Akerson back in September.
"If you want to compete head-to-head with Tesla, and we ultimately will, you want to do it with a Cadillac,”
