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.

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.
