Buick LaCrosse Hybrid Could Come To The U.S.

If a new report is to be believed, Buick appears willing to offer the LaCrosse Hybrid Electric in the United States if there’s adequate demand.

During discussions with Auto Guide, Buick spokesman Stuart Fowle said that as the brand is a global one, it’s certainly possible that models currently available solely in countries outside of the U.S., like China, could make their way stateside if needed.

Fowle explained that the LaCrosse Hybrid is one possible candidate which could prove popular in the U.S. as automakers and consumers alike become more and more accepting of electrified vehicles.

In China, the model ditches the 3.6-liter V6 of the standard LaCrosse in favor of a 1.8-liter SIDI engine joined with an electric variable transmission and a 1.5 kWh lithium ion battery pack. This setup is enough to power the model to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 8.9 seconds but most importantly, allow it to achieve 50.05 mpg US.
