Just hours after GM Authority exclusively reported on the impending debut of the upcoming Buick Electra E4 in China, General Motors revealed the first teaser for Buick‘s all-electric utility vehicle it defines as a crossover coupe.
SAIC-GM, GM’s main joint venture in China, has revealed the first teaser image of the upcoming Buick Electra E4, confirming the vehicle’s imminent world debut in the Asian country. Notably, the automaker announced the Electra E4’s focus and positioning in the Chinese market by officially referring to it as Buick’s first zero-emission crossover coupe.
In fact, the teaser image of the upcoming Buick Electra E4 previews the side profile and highlights the dynamic coupe-like silhouette of the second member of the new family of Electra crossovers. It shows the Electra E4’s low roofline and the side profile of the model’s bodywork, which includes several aerodynamic elements such as the shark nose front end, an antenna, a roof spoiler and a ducktail spoiler integrated into the tailgate.
Additionally, the colorful background of the Buick Electra E4’s first official image previews the wide color palette the crossover coupe will be available with. SAIC-GM says the Electra E4 will seek to win over younger customers with an initial offering of seven body colors and a list of exclusive trims to meet users’ personalized needs.
As the production model of the Buick Electra-X Concept introduced last year, the upcoming Buick Electra E4 will stand out with its sculpted bodywork and elegant proportions that take advantage of form-based surfaces rather than complex lines. Its sporty character will be further accentuated by introducing the Tri-Shield brand’s first GS variant in a fully electric vehicle.
The upcoming Buick Electra E4 crossover coupe is expected to officially debut on June 19th during a special unveiling event in China, according to sources familiar with the matter. The new model will be positioned below the all-new Buick Electra E5 and will be an exclusive vehicle for the Chinese domestic market.
