China, Expect Buick Velite 5 With Chevy Volt Roots

According to Buick, it will come up with an electric range of 62 miles.

It should be the automaker’s 1st extended EV. It is called the Velite 5 and has a familiar outlook. A teaser reveals that the vehicle will have lots of common things with the new-gen Volt from Chevrolet.

The concept was presented by the company last November. It had a different design. However, the road-going offering will be faithful to the Volt origins. The model will be a Buick-badged Chevy Volt.

According to the automaker, the new offering will benefit from an electric range standing at 62 miles. Meanwhile the U.S.-spec Volt stands at 53 miles.

The offering under consideration will be equipped with a 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 101 hp and torque of 103 pound-feet.
