GM has unveiled its new electric crossover, the Buick Electra concept vehicle, and it packs quite a punch! The vehicle comes with a maximum power of 435 kW, enabling 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 km/h) acceleration in just 4.3 seconds.
“I am confident that the aesthetics and technology innovations reflected on the Electra will ultimately help reset consumers’ expectations, just as all previous Buick concepts have done," said Sam Basile, executive vice president of SAIC-GM.
More impressive perhaps is the fact that GM said that the vehicle would be equipped with a GM Ultium battery system. This system would enable a range of 410 miles (660 kilometers).
“Building on Buick’s proven leadership in electrification, the Electra represents the brand’s ambition to bring together beautiful styling and intelligent connectivity in the new era of zero emissions,” said Molly Peck, executive director of Buick Sales and Marketing at SAIC-GM.
“The advanced Ultium battery unlocks the exciting new possibilities for what future EVs will look like. The Electra fully leverages state-of-the-art technology to set a new standard for future EV design and personal mobility.
The car also features sculptural surfaces in front, along the sides, and in its wheels and headlights. It boasts a gradient light silver exterior tone in the front end that progressively transitions to dark silver in the back.
The futuristic vehicle comes with 23-inch wheels and rear Matrix LED lamps that feature parametrical mathematic lighting strings with a depth effect. The car is also complemented by a full LED-illuminated grille and a rear screen nameplate.
Finally, the concept's butterfly wing doors support facial recognition and a hidden floating skateboard is integrated with the stoplight under the rear bumper to expand users’ personal mobility options.
“Today, Buick’s innovative thinking and imagination of future intelligent mobility have reached the next level with the Electra,” added Basile. We have to admit, the future of vehicles is looking good!
