    Will Buick Velite come to U.S. Should it be named Electra?

    Will the new electric Buick Velite introduced for China come here? Should it be called Electra?

    It's simply a rebadged Volt, so probably not.

    Will the new questions about the electric Buick Velite be introduced for new threads? Shouldn't it be called out in the Velite threads instead?

    Interesting. Electra was a luxo-barge... It would be hard not to name an electric Buick; Electra, but it is such an old name....
    85 cars since 1975....
    Good night and good luck.

    AN old name that anyone younger than 50 probably know nothing about. I'm 47 and I only know about it because I learned to drive in a Buick Park Ave Electra.

    Then it was a trim level not an actual model.
    Sometimes doing it all isn't enough.
