Buick will not let the Velite name go as once previously thought. We reported on the Buick Velite actually turning out to be a rebadged, 2016 Chevrolet Volt for China. However, it seems not all development has been undergone in China.
Reddit user Hogbelly posted a photo of the Chinese Buick Velite roaming the streets of Chicago, Illinois. The tri-color badge of Buick is clearly evident up front, but camouflage obscures any other design tweaks that may occur for China.
Power is said to be identical to the Volt’s Voltec generation two propulsion method, meaning a 1.5-liter gasoline engine will be on board.
Local Chinese outlets have already uncovered the car completely in what seem to be press release images. You can head to the link here to see those.
