Future Buick EV Crossover Spied For The First Time In China8
Just as General Motors prepares to introduce the first Buick EV based on Ultium technology before the end of the year in China, a future Buick EV crossover has just been captured for the first time in the Asian country.
Local media have captured the first highly camouflaged prototype of a future Buick EV crossover during its road tests in China, gleaning several interesting details of the American brand’s upcoming zero-emission model. As such, this crossover is one of five all-electric models powered by Ultium Battery and Ultium Drive motor technology that Buick will launch by 2025 in the Chinese market.
Although the prototype is covered in heavy camouflage, spy photos give us a more or less clear idea of the proportions and approximate size of the future Buick EV crossover. In this regard, its dimensions appear similar to those of the all-new 2024 Chevy Equinox EV in both length and width, which would position it between the compact and midsize segments.
Aesthetically, even with the camouflage, it can be seen that the future Buick EV crossover has the split headlight format with the signature of thin LED lights on top and the characteristic shark nose shape of the brand’s new Pure Design language. Also on the sides are conventional utility vehicle proportions with body-mounted mirrors, flush pop-up door handles and aerodynamic six-spoke wheels.
The captured photo of the cabin shows that the future Buick EV crossover’s interior will feature a large integrated curved panel that combines the driver instrument cluster and the infotainment system screen, with a freeform layout similar to the one found in the Buick Electra-X Concept. In addition, the steering wheel has the same design as the one in the mysterious vehicle in which the new Buick logo was first seen, while integrating Super Cruise hardware.
The first Buick EV based on GM’s Ultium technology is expected to be officially unveiled next month at the 2022 Guangzhou Motor Show, which kicks off on November 18th. It’s unclear at this point if that model will be this future Buick EV crossover or some other utility vehicle, but it will wear a variant of the Electra nameplate that will be carried by all of Buick’s next-generation zero-emission vehicles.

This might be the long-delayed Buick Enspire.
Another SUV. How inventive.
Seriously. Why is GM so lame in producing what consumers demand the most and which sells the best? So predictable.
It’s soon going to be us against them. When your area starts experiencing daily blackouts due to numbers of Battery-powered vehicles being re-charged during even normal times or during weather extremes and your home or business is without power for who knows how long, there is going to be a huge backlash from those underinformed folks who currently have no idea why this is going to eventually happen. Either Electric Utility bills will quadruple or quintuple as Utilities pass along their costs for bringing new generating plants on-line or for the increased costs of upgrading the overloaded transmission grid. Either that or some Politician-clown in Congress or the White House will sponsor and pass another huge spending bill like the ridiculous disaster they just recently rammed through with a fake name, lying that it was going to lower inflation.
Lol in 1 year my bill went from .055/kwh to .1/kwh… The “green plan option” is closer to .2/kwh. Politicians want to eventually regulate and tax our carbon footprint. Technically they already do this via your bill half of your charges are because of regulations. This is just another ploy for more tax revenue. It has nothing to do w the environment. Companies are just doing what is required to stay alive
Who cares…it’s China.
Any new that US consumers might be interested in?
That interior is looking very promising
Lets see what Buick brings out
Why don’t you move your whole headquarters to China. I quit buying GM when they killed the Pontiac. Such a disgrace to call yourself an American car company. That’s why I drive a Honda now.
