The Importance of the Buick Wildcat EV Concept
Automakers regularly unveil concept cars, and some of them will feature a few concepts that may eventually make their way into production automobiles. But the Buick Wildcat EV concept car is something different. In fact, even though, like most concept cars, Winter Haven drivers will not get a chance to take this vehicle home, its design will heavily influence the aesthetics of Buick vehicles going forward, both gas and EVs. This is especially true of the upcoming Buick electric vehicle lineup, which will all carry the name “Buick Electra”.

What We Can Expect from the Buick Electric Vehicle Lineup
The upcoming Buick electric vehicle lineup will carry the name Buick Electra and will feature an SUV as the first model. We expect it to arrive at Bartow dealerships in 2024. It’s expected to be quickly followed by another SUV of a different size. It’s not certain yet whether Buick will begin with its new full-size SUV or crossover. Buick will then expand its electric lineup into other vehicles as it plans to offer only electric cars by the end of the decade. The automaker says it will not produce cars with gas combustion engines after 2030.
