The best comment on the ELR sales and inventory figures post didn’t even come from the comment section. Instead, it ended up in the TTAC reader feedback inbox.
One of our readers, who asked for his name to be withheld, had this to say about my ELR post
Not trying to excuse the elr….but you have to look at inventory on it with some sort of intelligence… not the usual approach. There are about 500 elr dealers…. do the frickin math.
Two units per store. Some have more….some have less. You act as if there are ELRs pouring onto the streets.
OEM has to supply the dealers who signed up to sell it right? Launches have to fill the channels…. you write like Cadillac is drunkenly building these without a clue.
Our reader certainly has a point, but I still think that there are too many examples on the lots, given how these cars are selling. And the high price tag – even if most of these cars will be leased – makes it a hard sell, especially against a Tesla Model S.
