The classic vehicle in General Motor's line-up, the sleek and classy Buick, is now getting electrified with the all-new 'Buick Electra' crossover with the mammoth Ultium Battery, capable of producing a 400-mile range for the electric vehicle.

Thirty years after the Buick Electra's last production took place, GM is now reviving the classic, boxy vehicle, formerly hiding a V-block internal combustion engine in its hood. 1990 saw the last of Buick Electra, but GM's revival now gives it the appropriation to its name.

The vehicle was recently unveiled by GM's Chinese partner SAIC-GM, according to Electrek. According to the American car manufacturer, the 'Buick Electra' is only a concept vehicle as of the moment, and prototypes will soon follow.

Despite the vehicle debuting in Shanghai, China, GM says that this is a 'global version' of the car and will be what the company will give to the world. The vehicle is now a sleek-designed electric vehicle crossover, bidding farewell to its boxy sedan heritage.

The electric future of the Buick Electra will be the latest addition to GM's long line of commitment to going fully-electric shortly. The venture started with the Hummer Electric Vehicle SUV, a concept car that paved the way for GM's EVs platform. The Buick Electra will soon be joining the sales of EVs among the company in the foreseeable future.

General Motors and Buick's venture and commitment to a zero-emissions future are finally coming to fruition with affiliate and subsidiary brands under its belt are having its very own electric vehicle.

GM is now boasting its recently released Ultium Batteries and its flexible platform that complements the new tech. The new platform is a flexible battery pack that can be stacked vertically or horizontally. The flexibility of the battery pack will complete the vehicle for all of GM brands' needs.

Ultium Batteries are 50-200 kWh in capacity, depending on the vehicle and the company's specification and energy options. The battery boasts a 400-mile range for all platforms, and even more, according to GM. The new platform will also cater to several drive layouts, including rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, and performance AWD.

The battery also boasts that it can achieve 0-60 mph within or less than three seconds on a full charge. However, this does not take into account the vehicle's mass and make.
