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.
