Shanghai 2011: Buick Envision Concept


As a further sign of China's relevance for GM, specifically their Buick brand, the Envision concept that was revealed at this year's Shanghai Motor Show is meant to show the next phase of Buick design. Already extremely popular in China, Buick has proven itself to be a solid money-making brand for GM in the past couple of years. Now that new models such as the Regal are available, U.S. sales are also steadily increasing.

The Envision concept is smaller than the current Enclave CUV and power comes from a 2.0-liter turbo four mated to an eight-speed automatic with two electric motors. Energy is stored in a lithium-ion battery which is chargeable with either a cord or a roof-mounted solar panel. Weight is reduced due to extensive use of carbon fiber, aluminum, and magnesium. Designed "specifically for the Chinese market," the Envision also rides on a magneto rheological suspension that can supposedly recycle energy.
