    Re: CT5-V vs Tesla Model 3

    I was certain he'd pick the Cadillac by the way he was laughing and so thoroughly enjoying it, but his choice of the Tesla backs up how the Tesla owners I've spoken to rave about the effortless acceleration.

    But damn that CT5-V looks and sounds good!

    I'd like to see them expand this test out - USA vs. Germany to see how the Tesla/Cadillac stack up vs. BMW/Audi.

    Yup, he is trying to say gas prices and chargers, etc., but we all know what the 5 year old does..

    While not as quick as the Tesla, the Volt does a respectable SOTP 0-40 mph. When Cadillac makes the Ultium available, let's do this again.
    2005 CTS-V, LS6, supercharged, L-T headers, etc SOLD !!!
    2011 Cruze ECO, 1.4T, 6-spd manual. (my DD) SOLD !!!
    2012 SRX, 3.6, AWD (wife's car)
    2017 Volt Premier Iridescent Pearl Tricoat (son has taken it over)
    2016 ATS Premium 6MT (my DD)

    I didn't order it. However it is the first and only CT5 V to arrive and my dealer. I literally snatched it off the truck when it was delivered yesterday. I did see that it was inbound for weeks and told my dealer I wanted in when it came in. As I was driving down to the dealer after it was unloaded another long time customer spotted it and said to my salesman: "That's my next car!" My salesman had to give him the bad news that it was already sold.
