The Buick Motor Division is considered to be among the best in the car manufacturing industry. It's no wonder why aside from the LA Auto Show, the China's 2016 Guangzhou Auto Show, which will also be happening on the same date, is something Buick has to prepare as a venue where it will be announcing the Velite concept.

Teaser Image Released, Buick Velite Spotted?

Prior to the much awaited debut of the Buick Velite concept in China's Guangzhou Auto Show 2016, the car manufacturer released an official teaser image of the car, though the photo only showed a little preview of its front side. In a report from GM Authority, the upcoming Buick Velite has apparently been seen on two separate occasions. It has been seen on the streets of Chicago as it roamed for tests and it has also been seen in from its leaked photos on a Chinese publication.

What To Expect From The Specs

According to a report from Carscoops, most of the details regarding the powertrain of the Buick Velite concept have not yet been disclosed. However, it was said that the Velite concept will be making use of a 1.5-liter gasoline unit as well as the electric motor that is also found in the Chevy Volt. This will enable the vehicle to run up to 675 kilometers or 420 miles. Car scoops also added that the looks will practically be the same as its overseas counterpart with just a few changes like the bumpers and the new badges.

When Will It Be Available And Will It Be A Hit?

The exact date of its availability on the market has not yet been disclosed. However, it is believed that it will be on the Chinese market next year. Whether it will be a hit or not is a question that will be answered next year once it's officially released.
