General Motors is talking a lot about EV’s these days, but the Buick brand has been oddly quiet on the subject. That is about to change according to the Buick Twitter account, which confirmed plans to debut a new EV concept this summer.
Replying to the GM corporate account with their Dr. Evil Super Bowl commercial, Buick dropped an image of the concept’s headlight. The teaser itself doesn’t show us much at all; just that the lamp looks very curvy and features “Buick” embossed in the side. The photo includes a caption at the bottom that says “concept vehicle shown” to confirm this is actually a concept.
Buick is literally the only GM brand in North America that hasn’t discussed its planned EV’s in any detail. During Mary Barra’s 2021 CES keynote she confirmed plans to rollout two Buick EV crossovers; part of GM’s broader plans to offer 30 EV’s by 2030. Aside from that broad bit of information, little has been officially confirmed.
Based on documents reviewed by AutoVerdict, we expect one of Buick’s EV crossovers to be similar in size to the Cadillac Lyriq. This is also the EV that is likely to show up first. Meanwhile, the second EV will be similar in size to the upcoming 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV. One of the EV’s is also likely to wear the Buick Electra name, which GM recently trademarked in the U.S. and Canada.
Stay tuned this summer to learn more about this Buick EV concept.
