Buick throws its hat in the plug-in ring with the sleek Velite concept

Buick has introduced a futuristic concept car named the Velite. The annual Los Angeles Auto Show kicked off just a few days ago, but the brand decided to present its newest design study during the Guangzhou Auto Show thatís currently taking place in China.

The Velite was developed by the Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center, a joint-venture operated by Buick parent company General Motors and China-based industrial partner SAIC. The design allegedly draws inspiration from water and Chinese culture, and it falls in line with Buickís new design language by adopting styling cues such as a wing-shaped front grille and headlights with boomerang-shaped LED daytime running lights. The blue accents will characterize every electrified member of the Buick lineup in the coming years. Read more and see pictures at Digital Trends.
