We’ve heard it before, as it seems that Buick and parent company General Motors are sticking to the decision on importing the 2016 Buick Envision from China when it is ready for U.S. consumption.
The news surfaces previously during UAW contract negotiations, causing the UAW to become “alarmed” at the decision to import the 2016 Envision crossover to the U.S.
Cindy Estrada, Vice President of the UAW’s GM department, voiced her distaste in the possible decision.
“After the sacrifices made by U.S. taxpayers and the U.S. workforce to make General Motors the profitable quality company it is today, UAW members are disappointed with the tone-deaf speculation that the Envision would be imported from China,” Estrada said in August. “GM should stand by its declaration that it will build where it sells.”
The Detroit Free Press reports that Buick is still on track to import the 2016 Envision to the United States from a plant in the Shandong province in China. Buick declined to comment on future product rumors, but did previously state that it only planned to import 30,000 to 40,000 units per year if it came to it.
