The latest Wildcat concept from Buick takes a few design cues from its predecessors, but includes many modern elements too

Buick has unveiled its new Wildcat EV concept at an event in Detroit. A slick and slender two door electric coupe, the model represents an enormous change for Buick in terms of design while simultaneously retaining elements that link to its long and rich history.

“The Wildcat EV concept represents the real design future for the brand,” says 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.”

The stretched shape of the concept is emphasised by sharp lines that run uninterrupted from the headlights to the rear lamps. The long hood, sloping roofline and minimal rear overhang also help to make the concept appear lengthy and aggressive.
