In my line of work, I need to review all types of vehicles in order to remain current. To my wife's chagrin, this also includes road-testing convertibles. It's not that she dislikes open-top cruising; it's simply that the surrounding swirls of cool air always chill her. Heated seats help but now, because of Mercedes' Airscarf, I may never review another drop-top unless it's a Merc.
The new Cadillac ELR may be all of the above, however, even after returning the car to its rightful owners, I'm still scratching my head. I'm wondering what the ELR's true reason for being is. I keep asking myself the question that's been on many experts' lips since the ELR launched: Why?
