    Rumorpile: Buick Working On An All-Electric Crossover Based On Bolt EV

      Buick could be getting a new EV using the bones from the Chevrolet Bolt

    General Motors CEO Mary Barra said something interesting about the Chevrolet Bolt EV earlier this year.

    “…the Bolt is our platform that we’re going to continue on and have a huge range of vehicles.”

    Now, a new report from InsideEVs has possible details on one of these new models. According to a source that attended a focus group in California, the vehicle in question is a new Buick crossover that is said to look like a next-generation Encore. The model will use the Bolt's structure and powertrain, but come with a different design and features such as a floating roof and a push-button drive selector. 

    The Buick crossover will be about the same size as the Bolt, but offer slightly more rear legroom. It will also be slightly slower than the Bolt - a 0.4-second difference in 0-60 mph time.Bolt, but offer slightly more rear legroom. 

    No timeframe was given as to when we might see this new Buick EV crossover.

    Be interesting to see what they do with the BOLT Bones. This could be what the wife will approve to buy then. :)

    This is a good idea and if it is larger than the Bolt, say 173 inches long it will be in the middle of the Encore and Envision in size.  Pricing I imagine would mirror the Enclave.

    Might be a really nice vehicle, actually.

    OK now this makes sense.  Expanding the Bolt to a Buick crossover is a great idea.  Just make sure it is Envision sized rather than Encore sized.
