In 2024, Buick will present its first electric car, and perhaps it will borrow some solutions from the “Wildcat”. In the future, Wildcat will become a platform for the introduction of new features such as artificial intelligence, biometrics, and aromatherapy.
The Buick Wildcat EV concept “sets the design direction for future models as they transition to an all-electric future.” This is a fairly large coupe with a 2 + 2 landing formulae, shapes, and proportions reminiscent of the Koenigsegg Gemara (the length of the Swedish mega car is almost five meters). The dominant features of the prototype’s appearance are a tilted front with a trapezoid grille, “tick” headlights with Micro—LED technology, and three-dimensional lanterns entering the roof.
According to Buick, the interior of the Wildcat is defined by simple, elegant forms that “convey balance, harmony and a feeling of warmth.” There are four displays in the driver’s field of view. The large-format “dashboard” on the front panel is accompanied by side-view camera screens built into the doors and a touch panel on the console central armrest. Another important detail is the choice of colors. “Buick” uses a calm combination of white and dark green, coupled with orange accents and inserts of polished and polished aluminum.
The Wildcat EV prototype will act as a platform for a number of exotic functions. Artificial intelligence, biometrics, and even aromatherapy will be widely used. For example, monitoring the driver’s heart rate will allow you to automatically launch relaxing programs in case of stress. It will be possible to dim the lights, turn on the massage function or fill the salon with a pleasant aroma.
All this is part of a big plan to transform the Buick brand. According to the strategy, the brand will present the first electric car in 2024, and by the end of the decade, a fully electric line will be formed.
