More impressive perhaps is the fact that GM said that the vehicle would be equipped with a GM Ultium battery system. This system would enable a range of 410 miles (660 kilometers).

The futuristic vehicle comes with 23-inch wheels and rear Matrix LED lamps that feature parametrical mathematic lighting strings with a depth effect. The car is also complemented by a full LED-illuminated grille and a rear screen nameplate.

Finally, the concept's butterfly wing doors support facial recognition and a hidden floating skateboard is integrated with the stoplight under the rear bumper to expand users’ personal mobility options.

“Today, Buick’s innovative thinking and imagination of future intelligent mobility have reached the next level with the Electra,” added Basile. We have to admit, the future of vehicles is looking good!
