Buick Lacrosse Eassist
In its latest 30-second advertisement pitching the 2012 LaCrosse eAssist, Buick makes an interesting point: since people don't constantly run in place, its near-luxury mid-size sedan doesn't either.
Hybrids have never been a hit in China, with even the Toyota Prius failing to make a dent in a meaningful way over there. Some say the Prius' unconventional styling turns Chinese consumers off. Maybe that's why Buick is betting its conventionally styled LaCrosse eAssist will be a hit in China.
