General Motors has unveiled a futuristic Buick Electra concept car at the Beijing International Auto Show. It is the harbinger of Buick’s serial electric coupe-crossover coming in a couple of years and will only be produced and sold in China.
The exterior of the car is characterized by a combination of sharp lines and intricately curved surfaces. The car does not have a B-pillar; all the side doors are opened by a butterfly-wing mechanism. The cabin is science fiction: a steering wheel instead of a steering wheel and a huge display that combines the instrument cluster, multimedia and all other functions.
The Buick Electra is designed by the PATAC Engineering Center, a joint venture between GM and its longtime partner, the Chinese automaker SAIC. The styling of the concept car was worked out by a team of specialists from China and the USA. Nothing is said about the technical side of the sample. It is only claimed that it is equipped with an electric power plant. Most likely it is just a mock demonstrator without aggregates.
