    Buick Unveils Two Electric Cars

    What do we think of the Enspire and the new Velite? I think they are cool looking, but that Enspire name is awful. Sounds like it should be on a 2002 Geo or a Hyundai. I like Electra, Invite, and if they need an E name for a crossover, how about Envoy? Ensign? Pics here: http://www.autonews.com/gallery/2018...os01/417009998

    Curious, is this thing Regal TourX sized or more crossover-ish?

    One looks good, and the other won't be produced anyway.

    The Velite:
    The Velite 6 is a China-only Buick that will be offered with either a plug-in hybrid or pure electric powertrain. First to arrive will be the plug-in hybrid, which will feature a 1.5-liter engine, two AC permanent-magnet synchronous electric motors and a liquid-cooled lithium ion battery pack. Buick says the Velite 6 plug-in has an estimated range of 700 km, which is equal to about 434 miles.

    Less is known about the pure electric Velite 6, which will likely arrive in Chinese Buick showrooms sometime in 2019. The automaker says the EV will “adopt a new-generation pure electric drive system to offer customers a smooth, quiet and natural driving experience,” but didn’t provide any further details.

    Both the Velite 6 plug-in and Velite 6 electric will feature a cloud-based Buick eConnect system that enables over-the-air updates and can be unlocked with a smartphone app. The system also allows for multiple accounts to be created, giving users a personalized profile with their own settings for the navigation or audio systems, for example. Music, destinations and other information can be sent to the car’s display screen in real-time through China’s ever-popular social media network WeChat as well.
    Neat features.

    Frankly? It looks Astra wagon-sized.
