The battery-electric version is set to launch at a later date

In addition to the all-electric Enspire crossover concept revealed this week ahead of the Beijing auto show, Buick is adding a new production variant to its Velite series of electrified vehicles for China. It's called the Velite 6, a plug-in hybrid that will launch this year in Buick's largest market, with a full-electric version, shown in the lead photo above at right, coming later.

Buick also claims a 0-60 time of 4 seconds

For the Beijing Auto Show, Buick is showing yet another crossover, this one in concept form. It's called the Buick Enspire, and unlike the rest of the brand's crossovers, this one is all electric. It's more than just a repurposed Bolt EV, too. Instead of the Bolt's 150 kW and 200-horsepower motor, the Buick has a 410 kW motor, which equates to 550 horsepower. Buick claims the motor will get the crossover to 60 mph in just 4 seconds.

It’ll debut April 17 in Shanghai, could be based on the Chevrolet Bolt

Buick released a teaser image of a new all-electric concept SUV it's calling the Enspire. It'll bow at Buick Brand Night on April 17 in Wuzhen, Zhejiang, and be on display to the public at the Beijing auto show later in the month.

The updates help, but Envision lacks identity in the crossover crowd

"We're in the fashion business," executive chief engineer Rick Spina told us as he introduced the 2019 Buick Envision. "Except with a lot of technology." Spina was referring to the changing whims of new-car buyers, which have prompted Buick to give the compact Envision crossover its mid-generational update early — just 18 months into its lifecycle — and drop its prices across all trim levels.

Refined 3.6-liter V6 and performance to back up its rakish lines

The cabin was overall a good place to get down to business. But what it doesn't have is the plushness or refinement of an Audi or Acura, to say nothing of Mercedes or Lexus. Perhaps even more egregious are the gappy fit and finish of the interior.
