There seem to be plenty of people who think the ELR costs too much, isn't as good as a Tesla, blah blah.
Frankly, I'm tired of it.

I lease the ELR and absolutely love it. My other car is a Z4, so I don't need a Tesla style speed rush but rather a comfortable and quiet ride. Everything works great and the deal was great too. I demanded a sign and drive for $699 a month (some time ago, could likely get $599 or $499 a month now).

If I had to suggest something to GM, the best thing for a pioneer ELR owner would be to upgrade the batteries as they become available to keep us happy - they have done this with the free 240V home charger already!

Enjoy the car, especially when driving in all electric mode!

If I worried about what people thought, I wouldn't have bought my Smart Fortwo Electric Drive. Driving an EV is such a pleasure, no other mode of transport has such quiet seemless acceleration.

I routinely get people waving at my at a red light (usually after I smoke them from the previous light) asking me about the car, and when I tell them it is electric drive, they give a thumbs up.

I presume the ELR gets attention for a completely different reason, namely, it is a beautiful and stylish head turner!

Like I said, enjoy it!

Oh, and my other car is a Mercedes SUV, and gets zero attention and no one ever comes up to ask me about it...

Some people really do not have anything nice to say.

I've not noticed this at all. Maybe I've been hanging out at ELR friendly places.
