The hits just keep coming. With two Chevrolet concepts already out the door this week, General Motors has turned its attention to Buick, which is teasing the Envision SUV concept before its big reveal in Shanghai.
Developed by Shanghai GM and GM’s Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center, the Envision concept is designed with China in mind. In fact, GM specifically says the Envision is the product of “global design with local aesthetics for the Chinese market,” so don’t expect to see it in the U.S. After all, China is now the largest auto market in the world (and for Buick), so it’s no surprise this is a China-only vehicle.
It’s more than just a “dynamic, fluid, quiet and comfortable” design, as GM’s press release sums up the essence of Buick. The Envision is also a plug-in hybrid and features “loads of other new technologies” that the company will be showing off. So while the Envision may not be destined for production as-is, elements of its design and technology will likely make their way into future products.
The Buick Envision Concept SUV will make its big debut on April 18, just before the opening of the Shanghai auto show.
