The General Motors-owned brand Buick has announced two more electrified models for the Chinese market. The Buick Velite 6 will be sold as both a BEV as well as a PHEV.
The two Velite models will help expand the electrified vehicles offered by Buick in currently the largest EV market in the world. At the moment Buick offers the Velite 5 with a range extender, the Regal Hybrid and the LaCross Hybrid.
The new duo will benefit from GMs electrification and networking technologies, and will be based on the Velite concept, which was introduced by Buick in November 2016. The Velite 6 will also be fitted with an entirely new propulsion system, but there have been no announcements as to what kind of technology will be used or when the car is expected to be released.
General Motors is planning to release at least ten new EVs on the Chinese market by 2020. Furthermore, the manufacturer is planning electrified versions of all their Buick, Cadillac and Chevrolet models by 2025.
