Buick’s template for future’s new energy just made its debut at the auto show in China

The Buick Velite Concept just made its world debut in China at the Auto Guangzhou show 2016. The concept model will be a new template by Buick for its smart future new energy vision.

The concept will be developed under the Buick Blue strategy brand by the automaker. The concept was developed with the help of several collaborators which leveraged GM’s global resources.

The collaborators like GM’s engineering and design joint venture with SAIC were led by the Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC) on the making of the concept.

The team which was based in Shanghai used water and traditional Chinese culture as inspiration for drawing the concept. Their aim was to create a vehicle which is efficient, intelligent and green.

The Velite concept features an innovative crossover body which mixes up a sporty design with practical space in a vehicle. The design majorly shows flowing lines and rippling, sculpted curves.

The lines and curves are also a reflection towards Buick’s all-new design language which is all about improvement in the brands signature aerodynamics.

The front grille of the Velite concept has a winged-like shape which matches its intelligent matrix LED headlights. All of this gives the Velite a look suited to the future of new energy vehicles.

The interior of the Velite is another echo of Buick’s elegance in style and integrated designs of the vehicle cabin. The interior is made up of recycled materials consisting of ambient lighting all set with a panoramic sunroof.

The Velite is further characterized by a high-performance plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powertrain, equipped with a lithium-ion battery pack. GM’s latest modular intelligent electric drive system can also be found at the core of the Velite.
