It’s a concept Wild cat EV of Buick was presented for the first time – online – last June, but one thing is the image, another is the actual car. Visitors to the Montreal Auto Show will have the opportunity to see this fascinating design study up close. And he is sure to receive good attention on the show.
Like many other automakers, Buick has stated plans to become an electric brand by 2030, so this is the first step toward that goal.
Buick Wildcat EV: features, design, engine, battery
The least that can be said about this latest example is that its design has all the potential to encourage a rapid transition to electric vehicles; The car has quite attractive lines.
And nostalgics rejoice: as with the Electra concept, this new model has a name that has become an integral part of the company’s range: Wildcat. In fact, two generations of models with this name were produced between 1963 and 1970. Note that the cars of that time did not look like this one.
Progettata eats a 2+2 coupe, the Wildcat EV concept has hat tilted forward, trapezoidal grille with hook-shaped headlights and taillights. The car’s side signature can be seen on the brand’s future SUVs. The Wildcat also sports Buick’s new badge, which still includes the three shields, but has now been modified to mark the transition to another era.
There is no confirmation of a future production model for this beautiful Wildcat EV, which is not surprising given that, in our opinion, Buick intends to produce utility vehicles, not cars. But you can always dream!
