The Envision is one of two vehicles GM imports from China to the United States and starts at $31,995. The duties could raise the crossover’s price by $8,000, a Buick spokesperson confirmed with Bloomberg in a Friday report. In total, $50 billion worth of Chinese imports will face the 25 percent tariff.
The other vehicle GM imports from China, the Cadillac CT6 Plug-In, will also be subject to the tariff, though Cadillac did not comment on the vehicle. All other CT6 sedans are built at the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant.
Buick’s decision to import the Envision from China has caused a flurry of reactions in the past couple of years since the car’s introduction. Still, that didn’t stop the brand from selling 41,010 Envisions in 2018—its first full year on sale in the United States.
