The Buick Wildcat electric coupe concept looks brilliant
If the new Buick Wildcat electric coupe concept is any indication of where Buick is headed towards in the EV industry, the brand might be on the verge of regaining relevance. With the striking design of their new concept, Buick has definitely got us keeping tabs on their upcoming fleet of EVs.
The attractive Buick Wildcat electric coupe concept is a unique approach from the American marque. From the front to the back, it’s designed with edgy headlamps, contoured sides, a dramatically-sloping roofline, and sharp L-shaped taillights. One of the more eye-catching features are its semi-swing doors. Upon opening a door, a part of the roof lifts up making it simpler to access into and out of the car.
There’s also a new distinctive sharp beak face with the low-mounted trapezoidal grille on the front fascia, as well as some quite attractive front and back lighting. You may also note that the Buick Wildcat electric coupe concept is emblazoned with the company’s new tri-color streamlined logo and Jet Age-inspired wheels for a luxurious touch.
Designers at Buick have proposed utilizing biometrics to track your emotions and vital signs as you sit within the car’s interior. The vehicle would repurpose that data to choose whether or not to automatically turn on features like aroma therapy or even a seat massage.
“The Wildcat EV concept represents the real design future for the brand,” stated Sharon Gauci, executive director, Global Buick and GMC Design. “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.”
Buick stated that by 2030, they will solely offer electric vehicles in the United States. The company has confirmed that all of their future EVs will be composed of SUVs produced under their new sub-brand “Electra”. This means the Buick Wildcat electric coupe concept will never go into production and see the light of day, which is a true bummer, but it does allow a glimpse for what’s to come from the Detroit-based automotive pioneer.
