GM Hints At Future Buick EV Crossover44
General Motors is gearing up to release a bevy of new all-electric vehicles across a huge number of segments, with as many as 30 new EV models slated to debut globally by 2025. That includes new Buick EV models as well, and now, GM has teased an upcoming Buick EV crossover concept with this singular shadowy image.
The new Buick EV teaser image was posted to Buick’s social media feeds, and shows the upper signature lighting for a new Buick EV crossover concept. The lighting signature takes on a “checkmark” design, accenting the upper lines of the vehicle’s front fascia. In the corner of the lighting signature, we spot a Buick script.
According to the text accompanying the teaser image, the new Buick EV crossover concept will debut sometime this summer.
“We’re sure a mastermind who makes his own quasi-futuristic clothes will be impressed,” the text continues, referencing the automaker’s latest Austin Powers-themed video advertisement.
Although the teaser did not include any specific name for the new Buick EV, there are a few possibilities, per recent GM trademark filings uncovered by GM Authority. This includes the Buick Electra, per a filing made in December of 2021, or the Buick Velite, per a filing made in January of 2022.
General Motors is now ramping up its production capacity for new all-electric vehicles, recently announcing the addition of a third all-electric truck plant, as well as a fourth Ultium Cells battery plant. The automaker is now shooting for EV production capacity of 1 million units in North America by the end of 2025.
Towards that end, GM is investing $7 billion into its Michigan production facilities, the largest single investment in GM history. The investment will support four individual manufacturing locations, including a new Ultium Cells battery plant in Lansing and the conversion of GM’s assembly plant in Orion Township. The investment is expected to create 7,000 jobs and retain a further 1,000 jobs in the area.

… The Detail is Beautiful… Do not know if seeing Simpsons same time,,, thought to be a Hood Ornament.
Sincere … When Saw This… at first Eye Touch… Thought… Cool… GM Buick is again doing Hood Ornament… but then disappointed.. even when at second eye deeper … just a beautiful Headlight someway 😊
see the right shape a head, the left part a tail and below a wing holder … of course all chrome again 😊
frustrated, only Rolls Royce redid in 840 h in Wind Tunnel the 82.77 mm instead a 107 mmm with better face, because this Eleonor is ugly… a very nice hood ornament to the RR EV Spectre and 2030 future > Why not others ?
Of course it it can’t be a sedan.
but as we know it is the headlight another SUW SUV SUV etc
The bottom of the lamp reminds of a ’65 Buick Riviera headlamp.
Yes Christopher!! I saw that right away. It’s unlikely however that Buick will use any other styling cues from the ’65 Riviera although even in a crossover they could use stylized cues from that car like Cadillac is doing with the Lyriq. Regardless, this is only a concept so it either won’t be built or most of us will be dead but the time they would release it since it is an EV.
Too bad it’s a crossover though.
and an EV !
I’m really looking forward to this. Something comfortable & stylish that’s also an EV is really appealing to me
I echo what both Paul and Chris said above.
So here’s my thought. Can the entire industry and can we just STOP referring to them all as SUV/CUV/Crossovers? Please? Because there’s nearly no sedans within GM’s, is seems redundant to say “crossover” or “CUV” anymore. Plus, I’m at the point where every time I read those words I throw up in my mouth just a little.
You would think this would be a major opportunity for Buick/gm to have their first EV be a sedan. When someone says Buick to me the first thing I think of is really nice sedan’s not cuv/Suv/crossover. I think a Buick ev sedan would be a huge success but nope of course not that’s asking way to much lmao.
car enthusiasts would love it and buy it but the vast majority of the public wouldn’t care and buy the larger cuv.
The bolt is considered a sedan right? I just think with the bad press it has gotten a Buick sedan would be the saving grace. But I’m sure you are right.
Bolt is not sedan… a monovolume hatchback… not even a coupé…
but maybe did not understood your irony
The Chevy Malibu and Camaro are both sedans. You are losing your memory, Dan. And GM has an electric Camaro in design.
Umm since when has the Camaro been considering a sedan?
… it will be 4 doors sedan… too low greenhouse, but can be considered
Raymond J: No, not losing my memory. I wasn’t speaking literally that GM has no sedans, I was speaking in general. The Spark is done soon. I’m certain the Malibu will be done shortly thereafter. I don’t consider the Camaro a sedan nor the Bolt. In fact, I barely consider the Spark a sedan, but was trying to give them some credit until they announced it’s being canceled. So the huge company of GM really just has three sedans in total: Malibu, CT4 and CT5. And again, for how long?
Anyway, I was just being kind of sarcastic anyhow. I’m just totally sick of every person talking about how they drive an SUV like it’s some type of status symbol. And I’m tired of hearing about everything being an SUV/CUV or crossover. That’s all.
it has also the Chevrolet Onix and the Cruze too, but Buick has it in China, in USA … really none
Ray, that Camaro is a 2 door sedan just like there are 4 door coupes.
GMA can you tell me what social media feed? I looked and couldn’t find any showing these pics.
It’s on their twitter account posted the 13th. It doesn’t say much except they will show it summer of 22
How many Regal or Lacrosse owners here?
I have an 18 Regal GS
Thanks for buying.
So many post how they hate GM and Buick for not building cars but they never buy the cars they built.
Good to see someone did the right thing.
FYI nice car.
Last Buick I had was a GNX.
Im still waiting for the enspire
How many people are waiting to place their orders for a Chinese Electric Buick code named E-takeout.
Well how many people are waiting to buy the Tesla you know that’s made in China as well right Buick has been over there for quite a long time I wish I could have some of their cars but we just don’t buy them over here
Buick needs a sedan not another crossover.
Correction, there is nothing much left of the market you once knew. It’s completely changed, and btw bland sells, more than exotic.
I love how everything these days has to be “hinted and teased”. REALLY???, we’re talking about an EV Crossover…like every other major car manufacturer has available or in the works. Congrats to Buick for finally catching up I guess? Really nothing worth teasing…just show the damn thing already
I of course realize that GM is a much smaller corporation than decades ago, but it looks like these ’30 evs’ are going to be substantially ‘Badge Engineered’.
Think “Oldsmobuicks” of yesteryear – where all the divisions excepting Cadillac had basically a Chevy Nova for sale.
I mostly like my Bolt EUV – but it is 95% similar to the EV…
To me – it looks like GM will sit on its CAN until Ford releases a decent Lincoln EV Sedan…. First they have to change their decision to only make SUVs so it looks like I’ll be waiting a while…
I remember there was to be no EV Silverado – until the Great Brains in the Detroit Board Room realized that FORD will eat their lunch without some sort of Avalanche type product.
These EVs are all different vehicles that share a platform. That is how all companies develop vehicles now.
When were there no plans for a the Silverado EV? Keep in mind GM has been working on Ultium for at least 5 years now.
GM never said there would never be an EV Silverado.
In fact they developed the current Gen ICE Silverado to take in many different drivetrains but decided not to pursue Hyrbid tech in that BOF platform and went for a full bottom up EV.
Also Ford isn’t making any more Sedans for the US market, they walked away since 2019.
Why is the print so faint? Ink saving? Vision test? Modern news compliance? Can’t find the proper font?
Very cool light cluster design. BEV’s will finally usher in exciting designs inside and out. No more cookie cutter looking vehicles in my opinion. Design teams all across the Industry have to be so Geeked out right now. Cannot wait to see what the Auto Industry will look like by say 2030.Very exciting times!!!
I have a 2020 Buick Regal Sportback Essence with the 2.0 turbo. Great sedan.
