The first Electra EV will arrive in 2024, but in China, Buick some big plans as well. Buick plans to introduce five EVs in China by 2025 and two of them are coming this year. Buick is giving us a preview of one of its new EVs for China with the Electra-X concept.
From the looks of it, Buick is going to release a great looking electric SUV with its shark nose and trapezoidal grille. Buick says that the concept is inspired by the PURE Design philosophy and it “represents the continued evolution of Buick styling, which will be forward-looking and future-inspired. It has an expressive new face, sleek proportions, sophisticated details and purposeful innovation, that will appear on future Buick products.”
Inside there’s room for four in the futuristic interior. There’s a 30-inch Freeform display with a 6K resolution and the infotainment system is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 flagship chip. As a nod to sustainability, the seats are wrapped in 3D knit fabric made from recyclable PET plastic bottles.
The Electra-X concept is based on GM’s Ultium platform, but it hasn’t released any specs.
