Two Buick EV Crossover Models Still On Track To Arrive By 202541
General Motors recently confirmed it had no less than 30 new all-electric models planned for release globally by 2025. Among these is a pair of Buick EV crossover models, both of which will utilize the automaker’s latest Ultium technology.
Although General Motors declined to provide specifics on the two new Buick EV crossovers, we do know that one will be framed as a utility vehicle with “more conventional crossover proportions that maximizes interior space and cargo.” Meanwhile, the second “will feature more expressive proportions with a greater emphasis on form and athletic fashion.”
Given these two descriptions, it bears to reason that one of the new Buick EV crossover models will be framed as a practical, everyday vehicle, while the other will be a high-end model more focused on styling and/or performance.
We also know that both models will be underpinned by General Motors’ BEV3 dedicated electric vehicle architecture, with Ultium battery technology under the skin providing the motivation. It’s also highly likely the models will offer GM’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving assistance feature, which allows the driver to remove their hands from the steering wheel during extended highway travel.
In addition to confirmation of these two new Buick EV crossovers, General Motors also announced that several of its forthcoming Chevy, Cadillac, and GMC models would be accelerated to market, although the automaker did not indicate that the same was the case for the two future Buick models mentioned above. Nevertheless, the company did say it would introduce “several key high-volume entries by 2023.”
In addition to mentioning the two Buick EV crossover models, the recent press event also provided a glimpse of the forthcoming GMC Hummer EV SUV, a new Chevrolet EV compact crossover, and a new Chevrolet EV pickup truck model. General Motors says that two-thirds of the 30 global EV launches will be sold in North America as well.

Screw the crossovers! How about coupes and sedans?
Get a horse.
More boring Crossovers. The company that produced the GNX, the Regal or the Riviera is suddenly not capable of producing nothing but boring SUV’s and Crossovers? Until Buick produces a serious automobile like a sedan or a coupe, no more Buick for me.
So, did you buy the newest version LaCrosse, Regal, Regal TourX? No? You should have. They were all amazing vehicles to drive with dynamics that rivaled any car on the road. That is why they aren’t making sedans or coupes. Nobody buys them. Why make things that people don’t want?
@ W.E. Coyote
Exactly! I suppose it’s easier to fuss at GM than it is to fuss at all the people in the grocery store parking lot driving SUV’s and CUV’s. The people responsible for killing sedans and coupes are the people you deal with in your every day life, i.e. your friends, co-workers, family, and neighbors.
I don’t like it that sedans and coupes are dying either, but we need to point the finger at the actual responsible parties.
if the cadillac celestiq becomes a huge success, buick better get back into the super sedan business.
I bought a Regal. And I would never trade it for a any SUV or Crossover for the simple reason that I don’t like them.
I can’t wait to see Buick EV’s, Buick has always made great vehicles!
@ACZ, Buick is an All-SUV Brand, Chevrolet will replace the Malibu with an All-Electric Sedan in 2024 and Cadillac will launch about three sedans before 2025.
Hope not, don’t think it’s wise to replace Malibu with an all electric without infrastructure to support it, now an electric SS replacement with an VSS-R Malibu for starters is a way to go..
What isn’t an all SUV brand these days? No car company with any balls. They just want to go for what they perceive to be the fast buck. I drove Buicks for 40 years, but no longer!
What assembly line will these vehicles roll off from? China = no go. Let’s put the U.S. and Canada to work!
China is how Trolls say Spring Hill Tennessee
only if assembled in the USA
I Know, we need to make things in america, not other countries.

Uh…thanks, Captain Obvious.
Within one decade Buick (Asian growth will explode) and GMC-Hummer will be The General’s primary profit drivers. GM should bring Buick Blue to the US because Hummer is an amazing EV Halo for dealerships. To aid the Buick turnaround EVs should only be Avenir trimmed.
Blazer being cross shopped with Jeep proves that Chevrolet should chase exciting design instead of stale, boring people movers. With the exception of Equinox stale hasn’t worked well for Chevrolet.
The problem with sedans and coupes isn’t GM. It’s you the public consumer who would rather purchase an SUV or Crossover. Would it make you happy if GM had a backload of sedans killing their ability to be profitable? Don’t get me wrong, I love sedans but until GM figures it out, my neighborhood will be full of BMW’s and Mercedes sedans without a Malibu or Impala insight. I grew up when Chevrolet sedans, coupes convertibles and wagons were the norm. Times change. Mary Barra is doing a great job considering the state of the union (Covid-19 killing the economy and people’s generally bleak outlook).
The problem with most (cars) is space inside. Lack of leg room for rear seat passengers and a lack of trunk space.
While confirming to stricter gas mileage standards they sacrificed comfort.
There was a reason for the car’s being a little longer in years passed.
Every home has electrical outlets which is the ONLY infrastructure you need. Just charge it overnight while you sleep.
Not if you live in a large apartment complex.
It is possible to charge an EV even in large appartment complexes. You only need your own parking place and the installation can be done. As owner of a Chevrolet Volt, that´s one of the first things I had to find out.
You must not live in a major city apartment complex…..
Some complexes sure but most is every car for themselves……
Hey Einstein, there are millions of Americans who live in single family homes WITHOUT driveways like myself. What do you suggest we run extension cords across the sidewalk to the front porch outlet??? Now multiply that by millions. D-U-M-B Dumb!!!
Wow, check out the Superior IQ that insults people without cause. So when you come off your cocaine high, research how difficult it is to your “smart ” solutions, like ending up parking blocks away because all the spots are gone or you live on the 15th floor in a 70s era building (can’t stretch a cord for 300 ft or so without getting a fine) or teens unplugging your car at night….
Lol, my apologies. I hate how the response matrix is on this site.
So how will anyone ever do a road trip if they have to charge at home?
You’ll do a road trip with shorter periods of driving, and longer stops sitting around waiting.
And as a bonus, when you pay for fast charging not only is it harder on the battery, but they’ll charge you as much or more than it used to cost to fill your car in five minutes.
I hope the Buick Enspire is still coming out.
If cars are so light weight nowadays since the
Exterior is all plastic there is no reason they can’t produce a large sedan with plenty of leg room and a decent trunk.
My Buick roadmaster wagon still gets close to 30mpg on the highway and it’s a heavy duty car. They’re so much lighter now so I don’t believe they can’t produce highly efficient large model sedans and offer one wagon. Just one. It will sell if it’s done right.
I grew up inside a Buick and loved every bit of it but now it sucks. It is lost soul
I love the new Buick Enclave to buy and keep at least another 15 years in my life but it is not reliable like Toyota and not a peace of mind to have like the Toyota vehicles . I have a 2002 Toyota Sieanna as a second hand owner for the past 10 years with low expenses of maintenance bit I am 6′ man for my height Buick Enclave is a great choice to have but It is from GM which always has an uneessary issues and expenses. They are making great designs but couldn’t able to produce like Toyota’s vehicles so I am forcing my self to choose from Toyota for my replacing vehicle
C’mon Anton, if your going to be a troll you need to up your game a bit. Please tell me all about the unnecessary issues and expenses on the GM vehicle you don’t own. Tokyo Rose has been around for a long time.
General Motors should take the opportunity to design and develop an electric luxury sedan to compete with luxury brands like Bentley which plans on switching to an all electric fleet by 2025.
Would a Bentley owner consider a Buick, even if it was over the top luxury? I doubt it
They need to figure out how to compete with Tesla first.
@Omegatalon, Cadillac will launch an Electric Sedan in 2023 called the Cadillac Celestiq, it will be hand built and will be highly customizable. The Cadillac Celestiq will be heavily inspired by the Cadillac Escala. The Cadillac Celestiq will compete with the Mercedes Maybach, Bentley and Rolls Royce and will have a starting price of over $200,000.
That’s great, but super expensive cars sell in super low quantities.
@Nate, I Agree and I’m so excited for the Celestiq, GM says that they expect to sell 100 units of the Cadillac Celestiq each year which is definitely good!
Buick Blue uses the same visor & compass theme Mark Adams chose for Opel. This must be shared intellectual property and it would be cool to see them parked side by side.
