Buick's New Electric Concept Is Very Round

  Buick's New Electric Concept Is Very Round Buick has an image problem in the U.S., where it’s seen as a brand for The Olds, and where it’s planning to take its own name off of its cars in 2019. But in China, where Buick sold 1.2 million vehicles last year, it’s a completely different story. Electric is also big there, which brings us to the big Buick news of the day: an electric concept for China called the Enspire. The Enspire will debut later this month in Beijing, and reflects Buick’s continued push into China and what is turning out to be the future of the brand.

Pininfarina continues its ongoing partnership with the Hong-Kong-based electric automaker Hybrid Kinetic Group by introducing the new H 500 sedan concept at the Auto China show in Beijing.

Like the other concepts in this series, Pininfarina opts for a smooth, rather minimalist style for the H500. The model features a downward sloping nose with raised sections for the fenders, and a relatively narrow grille with vertical slats connects to squinting headlights. In profile, the roof flows back to a short tail. Chrome accents around the side windows add a visual flash to the otherwise understated design. The tail features wraparound taillights that accentuate the four-door's width.
