Buick announces new PHEV, BEV models for China

Buick plans to add two new models to its offerings in China: the Velite 6 PHEV and the Velite 6 EV.

China is by far the world’s largest market for the Buick brand, supposedly because former Emperor Pu Yi owned one (one expert on the Chinese automotive market told Charged that this story is apocryphal).

In April 2017, Buick introduced the Velite 5, a rebadged version of the Chevrolet Volt, to the Chinese market.

GM has provided no launch date, specs or other details of the new models, saying only that they include “Buick’s newest eMotion electric propulsion technology,” and are based on the Velite Concept new energy vehicle that was unveiled in November 2016.
