Okay, it’s not just the first Cadillac ELR that’s on its way out the door and headed to its happy owner — the whole first batch of these is on its way to some Cadillac plug-in car lovers, with Santa apparently directing the deliveries. Some may say the Cadillac ELR is over priced — well, Consumer Reports says so — but sexy sells, and many people think the Cadillac ELR is one of the sexiest cars on the market.

        loll funny guy but have to agree with u on the Tesla part
