General Motors-SAIC and Buick have their next act ready to be revealed in less than two weeks. The Buick LaCrosse Hybrid has received its first official teaser, and will be shown on April 18 in Shanghai.
During the event, GM-SAIC will also outline its “Drive to Green” strategy, which will be headlined by the LaCrosse Hybrid Electric Vehicle, or HEV. The HEV system is made up of a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric two-motor drive unit that provides additional power to assist the engine during acceleration.
From what we know, the Buick LaCrosse hybrid will follow suit in design, but we won’t see the entire vehicle until its reveal date.
During the event, Buick will also show the Avista coupe concept, making its Chinese debut. Hopefully, the Avista garners just as much buzz as it has in the United States and Canada. China will ultimately be the final say in if we ever see a production Avista in any form.
