All-Exterior LED Lighting for the Cadillac ELR

Efficiency seems to be what every automobile manufacturer is after these days, and Cadillac is no different.

Energy can be conserved some way in almost every element of a vehicle, all the way down to its lights.

That is why the latest in energy reduction has been light-emitting diodes, or LED lights.

This particular lighting technology features a longer life span and higher energy efficiency.

As if the extended range luxury coupe wasn’t efficient enough, the all-new Cadillac ELR will also be the first electric vehicle to feature all-exterior LED lighting.

That is right – all of the major exterior lighting groups of the Cadillac ELR will be LED.

As on the Converj, the concept from which the ELR is based, and true to the classic Cadillac style, the ELR will feature the signature vertical tail lights.

A sleek and dramatic appearance is achieved as the main projectors extend from the front fascia up into the fenders.

And, the front LED lights even double as daytime running lights.

“LED lights last much longer and use less energy than traditional halogen bulbs used in most vehicles,” said Exterior Lead Designer Martin Davis. “Beyond the beautiful design interpretation, using LED lights fits with the ELR’s environmentally friendly character.”
