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.

China . Pininfarina Designs Sedan And SUV For Vietnamese Automaker. From what we can see from the teaser, the concept , which is set to make its debut April 25, features a sleek, fastback design.

It’s a concept sedan that Pininfarina says “combines elegance and sportiness, pure shapes and sophisticated details, designed for dynamic lifestyle seekers.” Translation: it’s an extended-range EV like the Chevy Volt and BMW i3.

Occupants in the back get a shared screen between the seats. They also each have displays in the door panels, too.

"Hybrid Kinetic Group is a sound, crucial partner for Pininfarina," the design house's CEO Silvio Pietro Angori said in the concept's announcement. "We are creating a new range of electric vehicles together and preparing the way for their commercial debut with the presentation of the first Hybrid Kinetic produced car for the international market."

Hybrid Kinetic Group imagines a production H500 potentially packing 402 horsepower (300 kilowatts) from its electric motors and the ability to sprint to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 4.5 seconds. A range extender would provide a driving distance over 621 miles (1,000 kilometers).

Pininfarina is currently under the ownership of India's Mahindra and Mahindra. In addition to doing contract work for firms like Hybrid Kinectic Group, the Italian design house is working on a model of its own – an electric supercar that should arrive in 2020.
