Buick VELITE 6 is highly based on the the design concept of Buick VELITE new energy concept car. Through the analysis of contemporary user needs, architecture engineering research and keeping in mind future design trends, Buick aims to provide a practical and artistic offering for its customers.

MAV multi-function sports sedan body shape has the same comfortable driving experience as a traditional sedan, while providing more space and storage space. Compared with the MPV and the station wagon, the MAV's front suspension is more compact. This makes the overall shape more fluid and dynamic.

The self-adjusting independent suspension system provides a comfortable and detailed driving experience.

The Buick VELITE 6 uses an efficient integrated three-electric system and a precise energy management system. The power consumption per 100km is as low as 13.3kW·h, and the energy consumption is about 1/10 of that of a fuel vehicle. The city's comprehensive cruising range is 301km.

Through multi-stage vibration and noise reduction technology, Buick VELITE 6 overcomes common noise of the electric drive system. Combined with multi-module optimisation design strategy and quiet-tuning, Buick's patent mute technology optimises road noise and wind noise performance.

Based on SAIC General Motors' latest iterative upgrade of the “Second Engine” car-linking technology, Buick VELITE 6 is equipped with Buick eConnect 2.0 interconnect technology, including new card-based human-computer interface, Super ID personal account, OTA remote upgrade, virtual key , WeChat music and location delivery, cloud intelligent voice interaction function, fleet and other car-linked functions, to provide consumers with a rich “cloud” experience.
