It’s Thanksgiving in the United States and while many Americans are busy preparing their turkey dinners, General Motors Design has something else in mind. Shared on one of its social media channels, GM’s design house’s official Instagram features a Buick concept in time for Thanksgiving.
The Buick concept pictured above reminds us of the Wildcat EV concept shown earlier this year. The red vehicle shares several cues with the electric car concept (see gallery below), although the sketch appears to be a sedan rather than a 2+2 coupe.
The Buick sedan concept posted on Instagram was directed by Aaron Riggs or @zambiniftm on social media platform. According to his LinkedIn, Riggs has been a senior creative designer at GM since July 2012. He also served as lead exterior designer for the Cadillac Escala concept beginning in 2016 and developed original sketches and the scale clay model for the concept. Buick Avista in 2012.
The Wildcat EV Concept is, of course, a preview of Buick’s future design language. It comes with distinctive doors that “will influence Buick production models for the foreseeable future.” Much like the new red sedan concept sketch seen above, it comes with an angular front end, sharp creases, ultra-thin headlights and a trapezoidal grille.
Mirroring the wild exterior elements of the Wildcat EV Concept, the cabin comes with at least two digital screens, a slim dash design and cockpit-style seats with cantilever headrests. The red sedan concept did not come with an interior preview.
It’s unclear if this sketch foreshadows a full-fledged sedan concept for Buick or perhaps a production model in the near future. All we know is that if it does, it will definitely be battery-powered, as Buick will go all-electric by the end of the decade.
