Buick launched sales of its second Ultium platform-based electric vehicle, the Electra E4, this week in China, as General Motors continues to expand its lineup of EVs in a key market.
The electric coupe, available in two- and all-wheel-drive versions, is priced from 189,900 yuan ($26,448) to 259,900 yuan, GM’s China unit said.
It is 4,818 mm long, 1,912 mm wide and 1,581 mm tall, with a 2,954 mm wheelbase.
The two-wheel variant, installed with a 65 kWh battery pack, can drive up to 530 kilometers on one charge. A permanent magnet synchronous motor in the front generates a maximum power of 180 kW and a maximum torque of 330 Nm.
The AWD version, equipped with a 79.7 kWh battery pack, has a 620-kilometer range. With an additional induction asynchronous motor in the rear, it delivers a maximum power of 211 kW and a maximum torque of 465 Nm.
The Buick Electra E4 is produced at SAIC-GM, General Motors’ passenger vehicle joint venture with SAIC Motor Corp., operating plants dedicated to assembling Ultium-based EVs in Shanghai and Wuhan.
It is the third Ultium-based model GM has rolled out in China since last year, following the Cadillac Lyriq crossover and the Buick Electra E5 crossover.
The Detroit automaker will launch two more Ultium products in China this year, one for Cadillac and the other for Chevrolet, according to a statement by GM China made in January.
