Your new Cadillac ELR will come with OnStar RemoteLink too

Still waiting for those Cadillac ELRs to roll off the production line and onto the forecourt? Well, when they do, turns out they'll be OnStar-enabled and Smart Grid ready. The OnStar EV-specific mobile app lets you control and schedule when you charge your new wagon up. It'll even let you locate renewable energy sources (via an third-party services provided over an API), or set it to only charge during off-peak times -- to soften some of the inevitable sting from the estimated $75k sticker price. OnStar's been part of the Volt experience for some time, but GM's clearly keen to see it come to the bigger vehicle too. It's even throwing in a year of premium service to get you hooked started.
