Buick has found in China the place that the americans would not have been given. The second signature premium of General Motors (remember, Cadillac is the first) is very focused on achieving very good results in the asian giant. Why not stop introducing new versions, models and concepts with which to surprise the demanding chinese customers. One of them is the one that we bring here, the Buick Velite Plug-In Hybrid Concept presented at the Auto Show in Guangzhou in these days.
The design of this concept is very angular and shows the evolution that will follow the design of Buick into the future. Nevertheless seem in excess of the current Opel Astra. It is true that their forms have many more edges and areas of sharp the Opel Astra, but the set of your headlights, front grill and design of its silhouette, we could come very well in Europe as the successor of the Astra GTC.
This does not have to be a bad, or much less, however, shows us that the way that they are going to keep Opel and Buick (one in Europe and another in China) are going to be very similar. therefore, we may find within not much time this model with the insignia of the lightning in your grill to be sold in Europe as Opel Astra GTC.
Of the back there are no photos yet, but by the proportions and design features, we can venture that looks very much like its brother Opel. with Respect to its interior there is also no snapshot, although the brand has announced that both the dashboard as many visible parts of the cockpit interior are made with recycled materials and sustainable environment.
The main novelty that brings this concept is that its gameplay is a hybrid plug-in or Plug-In with a lithium-ion battery and modular. The brand has not said more technical specifications of the model but knowing the synergies of General Motors could well be a variant of the Chevrolet Bolt of latest batch.
Will have to wait for the brand and General Motors the disclosure of more details because we could bring any pleasant surprise.
