Buick may still have a reputation for making nice but less exciting sedans for older buyers, but it is one of the most popular brands in China. That's why the Enspire concept is displayed at this year's Auto China trade show in Beijing, and it is full of promises of advanced technology.
The Enspire, announced on Tuesday in China, is a design and technology study for General Motors to explore what the public thinks about the brand idea of an all-electric SUV. Adopt some of the technologies that we have seen in other concepts, such as large amount of OLED to project vehicle information, navigation and audio functions, as well as 5G connectivity. Buick says the Enspire has an inner theme with & # 39; & # 39; envelope horizon & # 39; & # 39; and suspended seats theater type & # 39; & # 39 ;, which reminds us of the concept of SUV Byton that we assembled earlier this year.
But the other technology in Enspire is under the skin. Buick says the concept has an EV range of 370 miles, thanks to an electric powertrain on the battery with up to 410kW of four-wheel drive power and a claim that can go from 0-60 mph in four seconds. You can also quickly load 80 percent in 40 minutes.
The Enspire is also equipped with the Super Cruise system which, until now, has been exclusive to the Cadillac CT6. We tested the system and discovered that it is a worthy rival for semiautonomous driving systems like the Tesla autopilot, and its lack of availability even in the newer models of Cadillac is a shame. A spokesperson for Buick in the US UU He said the company did not comment on the possibility of adopting Super Cruise on any of its future products, and Enspire was not based on any current GM vehicle.
But this is a promising sign of where Buick could go in the not too distant future. GM has already committed to launch more than 20 new electric vehicles by the year 2023, and there is no reason why this off-road Buick is not one of them, especially if it has a sophisticated driver assistance system and a wide range.
