Buick Releases New EV Concept Plan

DETROIT – After nearly 70 years of reserving the “Wildcat” name, Buick has released its Wildcat EV concept. The company says the new concept will influence the future of the brand.

Sharon Gauci, executive director of global Buick and GMC design, says the Wildcat EV concept means a lot for Buick in the upcoming years.

“The Wildcat EV concept represents the real design future for the brand,” she says. “Buick has always been forward looking and this expression is a glimpse of where we’re going, and the optimism we have for the limitless possibilities of an electric future.”

The outward appearance of the Wildcat EV concept also defers from previous designs. The company says the new design features a forward-leaning front-end appearance and a low-mounted, trapezoidal grille.

Additional lighting features and a new low, wide stance, also separate this concept from other vehicle designs.

Bob Boniface, director of global Buick design, says the technology and design exhibits the company’s forward growth.

“From every angle, the vehicle looks like it’s ready to pounce,” says Boniface. “It’s the result of careful attention to the proportions and sculptural beauty derived from the intersection of forms, not lines.”
