- Buicks new car pays homage to iconic Electra
- The Electra is a mixture of a GT and a crossover
- The electric car concept also has butterfly doors
Iconic American car maker Buick has teased a brand new concept car called the Electra in Shanghai. Electra was also a legendary Buick car, but this one has nothing to do with it; instead it teases the electric future of the company. At a glance, this car looks like a sportier rendition of the Enspire concept from 2018.
Buick says the design has been inspired from a space capsule which pays homage to the original Electra’s space-race inspired appearance. This concept is being called the “potential energy” design language as it looks like an arrow that is being released from a bow. It has a long hood sloping windshield and roof and a pretty cool rear end. The facia features sleek headlights, a narrow grill, and a wild DRL design.
