Cadillac revealed a stylized version of their new ELR plug-in electric luxury coupe, just in time for the holiday season. Similarly to how Neiman Marcus usually dresses up a Lexus for their Christmas book, Cadillac had their ELR done up by Saks Fifth Avenue to create their own special edition.

On November 25, Cadillac and Saks Fifth Avenue will reveal a specially designed “Frozen Escalade” window display at the Saks flagship store near Rockefeller Center on Fifth Avenue in New York City. The display will feature a White Diamond 2015 Escalade with functioning light-emitting diode, or LED, running lamps, which appear embedded and breaking through a wall of ice.

This package, limited to 100 units, will include a 2014 Cadillac ELR with a White Diamond exterior paint color only available through this package.
