2017 Buick Velite: The mystery...

 We have seen this picture before.
GM is planing a Buick version of the Chevrolet Volt for the Chinese market.
Which makes sense, since the Buick brand is huge over there.

And this clearly is just a plain old Volt with Buick badges and very few other changes.
Now we have this.

An official sketch of the "Buick Velite Concept" GM will show in China in just a few days.
It looks like a completely different design. There is nothing of the Volt there.
I think it does look great. But this is an obvious show car. With tiny mirrors, no door handles etc...

I just wonder why they would have the production car ready to go, and at the same time, show a concept with the same name. One that looks so different...

Weird...

That little electric crossover should be the Buick Electra.
