General Motors is gearing up to release a bevy of new electric vehicle models, previously announcing that it will launch 30 new EVs globally by 2025. Now, we’re getting a very brief glimpse at what appears to be a new Buick EV.
General Motors recently posted a video to social media showing off Ultifi, the automaker’s new end-to-end software platform promising to deliver software-defined features, apps, and services to customers. Towards the end of the video, we see a new Buick EV concept, including a view of the concept’s futuristic interior space, as well as a profile view and a view of the tail.
The cabin of this new Buick EV concept includes a broad digital screen mounted behind the steering wheel, flanked by further infotainment screens to the right. The layout looks surprisingly similar to that of the Cadillac Lyriq. The seats are streamlined and sleek with heavy side bolsters, while a dividing B-pillar suggests that this is a four-door model. The driver also appears to be using gesture control.
The profile view is brief, but does show a very attractive fastback design with cab-back proportions and a long hood line. The tail of the vehicle is pointed and sharp, while the front overhang is very short. The profile also reveals a two-tone color treatment, matching a black roof with a silver-grey lower body.
The final view shows the sharp rear end of the new Buick EV concept, with an extended glass section and long, narrow tail lights. The Buick logo is seen prominently on the edge of the trunk section.
For now, the official details of the concept are still under wraps. It’s possible this may be a preview of a future Ultium-powered Buick EV that thus far has not been unannounced. It’s also worth noting that General Motors has stated that the Buick brand’s U.S. lineup would consist solely of crossovers, while Buick still offers cars for the Chinese market.
Check out the full teaser below. The new Buick EV can be seen at the 2:00 mark.
