Yeah, always the question with a low mileage used car. Sorry, I missed the "used" part in your OP.
So basically the Caddie is a Volt with some extra options? Seems to be the same drivetrain.
Yes, but I think that the power and suspension are significantly upgraded. And one of the options you can get is the adaptive cruise. Don't know much about them though, no way I would drop that kind of money on that type of car.

Well I would, as if it only boiled down to money I never would have bought the Energi in the first place. I had been looking at one for months and ordered it back in August - estimated 53 miles EV range and I have a 53 mile commute. This morning's commute was all EV with 10 miles left in HVB, and both afternoons (which always had better MPG) thus far have been all EV with 19 miles left in HVB. So that was with good weather, hopefully I can keep to EV only on all but the coldest days, we shall see. But I won't be using much gas at all as I charge near work for free.
I was looking for more EV miles but also have times where limited range of a BEV is a show-stopper, so this car was the perfect combo for me.
So now we are back down to a 1-Energi household, and I think we're keeping hers for several more years.

If you get a slightly used ELR, most of the depreciation hit will have already have happened. You will still have to find a buyer for the car though when you decide to move on.
If you don't mind dropping 80K on a car, why not a slightly used Tesla with the supercharger package? http://www.teslamoto...preowned/p53322
Resale on the Tesla would be much easier I would think.

I drive about 35k miles per year which kills resale value anyway, and not interested in a Tesla.

Wow. If I drove that much, I would want a nice comfortable car as well.
