Snazzy Buick Enspire EV Concept Teased
Following news a Buick Velite 6 plug-in and EV will debut for China, the brand has released a new teaser image. This time, it’s for another battery-electric SUV that will take the “Enspire” name.
Buick teased the Enspire electric SUV concept on Sunday with a solo shot of the rear. We see some sleek taillights and a round rear fascia, but that’s all the shadowy photo gives away.
A report last year claimed Buick is planning an electric vehicle based on the Chevrolet Bolt EV, and the Enspire EV could preview such a car. According to the report, the Bolt EV-based Buick will sport a more premium feel inside and out with LED lighting, a floating roofline, and luxurious cabin materials. What won’t likely change is the electric powertrain; a 60 kilowatt-hour battery pack will allegedly remain, and range should still hover around the Bolt EV’s EPA-estimated 238 miles.
The Buick Enspire will debut on April 17 in Wuzhen, Zhejiang, China, at a Buick event. It’s unclear if the Velite 6 EV and plug-in hybrid will also be present at the event. Although Buick will debut the Enspire EV concept in China, the global debut could be a precursor to a North American production vehicle. General Motors moved to trademark the “Enspire” name in the United States in 2015.
