Opel Adam not coming here as a Buick (?)





A while ago, after Buick announced the Adam would be sold in China as a Buick, everyone and their brother thought it meant the tiny car was also coming over here.
Even though GM never said that.
Now, these same people think it will never come here.
Because of what Buick's Duncan Aldred just said a few days ago :
"I wouldn't be looking for a small, B-segment car today".

GM never said we were getting the current version in the 1st place.
( I even seem to remember then saying it was never engineered to be sold in the US)
But I think there is still chance we might get the next one. Due out in at least two years, or more.

I mean, there is a market for this.
Especially this really cool, slightly raised up version pictured above.
Fiat still sold over 25 000 units of the regular 500 here last year.
(Over 42 000 back in 2012)

What do you think?
