Continuing its investment into an electrical future, American automaker Buick has unveiled its latest concept EV: a crossover bearing the company’s iconic Electra name, which was used for another range between 1959 and 1990.
Designed by a studio in Shanghai, Buick says that the new Electra is inspired by space capsules, featuring a glass pod-like cabin, sculpted body panels, and LED lights with a 3D effect on the front fascia. Butterfly doors serve to extend the futuristic aesthetic, while the interior stays consistent with a rectangular steering wheel and a wide curved screen acting as both dashboard and console. While the EV is just a concept, the brand also says that it employed a specific design language it calls “Potential Energy,” which will also be adopted in most production EVs releasing within this new decade.
As for its performance, the electric car utilizes a two-motor powertrain capable of pushing 583 horsepower to all four wheels, translating to a 0-60 mph time of just 4.3 seconds. Using GM’s proprietary Ultium battery technology, the Electra also boasts a 410-mile range per charge. At the moment this is just a concept so we would recommend you to check the best luxury SUVs.
